Common Questions and Answers about Puffy eyes swollen glands

swollen

I had rai treatment two months ago for Graves and am now experiencing very puffy swollen eye lids. Is this normal? I am afraid this is the beginning of eye problems. Does TED just effect your eyeballs, or is it your lids, too?
I first saw my doctor in April with swollen glands in my neck I have seen him 3 times since, today being the most recient. The swollen glands NEVER go down. They don't always hurt but it is getting more frequent and severe. My doctor said today that we would try one more antibiotic and steroid pack for 1 week and for me to return for a follow-up that if the "KNOTS" are still there in one week he wants to do a scan.
I'm not a doctor, but I do have a tendency towards puffy eyes. I know that one cause is allergy, and if your eye swelling comes and goes with the seasons, allergy is a real possibility. I know that another cause is that I chose my parents badly: My mom had major eye bags, and she passed them on to me. Thanks, Mom.
Here I sit 8 days after RAI and 7 days back on meds and my face has decided to swell like a big fat fish. What's the deal? My right eye is almost swollen shut and under my eyes is very swollen. I also feel tremendous pressure behind my eyes. What the heck? Anyone else have this? I thought being back on meds things would start improving, and they are for the most part, but this swelling thing is new. Having my scan today and will try and ask the radiologist but he probably won't know. Anyone??
And since then, I've had swollen glands around my collarbone, in and around my armpits, and around my groin. Its on both sides of my body, and some of the nodes are quite large. Anytime I notice a new one, its because its quite tender to the touch, and sometimes even general movement (especially in the armpit). I haven't gone to a doctor because I don't have health insurance and couldn't possibly afford to get any major tests done. I haven't had any recent infections.
also forgot to mention that I woke up this morning and my right side of my face was very puffy especially around my eye. 10. swollen right side of the neck (I guess due to the lymph nodes). I am starting to get so scared and worried that something is seriously wrong with me and they will never find out. I have two kids that I just want to see grow up and be with them through everything. Thank you for taking your time to read this long post.
I called the oncologist on call and told him my glands were really swollen and very sore and that I had a really bad headache. He had me go back to Extended Care. The Dr. I saw this day said I had shingles. So, is headache a symptom too?
Now my eyelids a swelled very much so and my eyeballs itch as if I have cotton or sandpaper in my eyes. My eyes arent red just swollen and itchy. I do not have allergies and the eye doctor said that if my symptoms did not clear up to come back. Does anyone know by chance what it could be or what I can do for my symtoms? I have never had this problem and my symptoms are changing everyday and not in progressing towards clearing up. Help!
A few days ago I noticed a sore, reddish swollen lump on my left inner thigh, right along my bikini line. It has since gotten larger (about the size of a nickel, and more elongated now). It only feels sore if I press on it or rub against it. It seems like a soft lump that moves around with the skin. Last night I applied a warm washcloth to it for about 30 minutes, which made it feel better. Could this be a swollen lymph node, or maybe an ingrown hair?
Dear Hashimoto-survivors, I'm asking myself this question for a long time but couldn't figure this out yet. How come that your face/cheeks/eyes/hands is swollen/puffy when you have hashimoto's disease? I'm sure it has something to do with to overall functions/metabolism of the patient and the fact that everything is slowing down but there must be a better explanation...
Also some pulsing sensations in my left calf, and muscle pain in my left thigh and left forearm. I have little appetite, and some itchy skin. My face and eyes also feel very puffy, especially in the morning. I had blood work done on October 12, which could find nothing wrong except a slightly elevated WBC (in range of 4 to 10, it was a 12). I have a GYN / ultrasound tomorrow. I am terrified of a lymphoma or some other cancer...

I don't have Hashimoto's but I do have very puffy eyes in the morning and I have the red, swollen in spots, splotchy face and very dry itchy scalp. Sometimes my whole body itches. Mainly the scalp though. My scalp and the back of my neck and back feels sun burnt, but it not. I get eruptions that bleed for months at a time (near the back of my neck mainly). They start out like boils sort of, and leak out a thin watery like blood for ~3 months. Then it will leave.
I had persistent gall bladder attacks as well as swollen glands located on the right side of my breast. Doctors ignored my concerns and my health problems continued to increase. Started having problems with recurrent migraines, minor muscle pain and thought it was from working out. My fatigue became terrible upon working out as well as the gallbladder attacks.
I also have other symptoms of fatigue and one of my eyes is very puffy and swollen some days. I am not overweight, I eat healthy and I exercise at least 4-5 times a week. He thinks it may be my kidneys now. Does anyone recommend anything before I keep going to the doctor's for just hit and miss?
In the last week, we have noticed peeling of the toes and now the hands as well. His eyes are slightly pink in the evenings but seem clear in the mornings. Not really red eyes, just noticeably more pink than his siblings. Although I realize that the peeling hands and toes, as well as bloodshot eyes, are signs consistent with Kawasaki Disease, does the fact that they have occured so much later than the fever mean anything? Our follow up echo is Wednesday.
When you see your doctor, throat redness and irritation and swollen glands are noted, confirming even further that you’re in the middle of a standard upper respiratory infection, or the common cold. Typically, it’ll last anywhere from 3-5 days. A small minority will progress into one of the classic complications of a common cold, such as a bronchitis or sinusitis.

My right eye is slightly protuded but its stable; both upper eyelids are slightly puffy. I also get a white discharge at the corners of my eyes sometimes, with eye pain inside the eye along with a sore throat I've had for over a year now. My ears also pop. After the CT scan, the ocular plastic surgeon said my eye was going back because of a fracture in the orbit.
Also, my bones ache,and I get this weird pain in my body when I touch a certain part of my neck. My eyes are dry, but I had my eye doc do a full exam and he said he didn't see anything thyroid causing my dryness. I had an ultrasound, and the doc only mentioned three nodules, which are benign from the biopsy. If I had an enlarged thyroid would she have seen it? Right now, the surgeon is looking at my chart for possible hyperparathyroidism. He says I've got a 50/50 chance.

Went to hospital last week because of swollen red puffy eyelids and gave me drops and oral steroids. Not helping at all.

Although somethings have cleared up but other problems just keep popping up. Getting really depressed here.
T3 was introduced because my eyes were puffy, swollen legs and severe body aches. This is better but still have headaches and at times feel moody and seem to get irritated. Also have a sense that my glands behind my ears hurt from time to time. My skin has a yellow tinge to it as well. This is better since the coconut has been included.
