Common Questions and Answers about Swollen eye after waking up

swollen

Its fine to have swollen feet at the end of the day but waking up with swollen feet is not good as far as i kmow...
I know this is an old posting, but i just began having this problem about 4 days go.. Each morning, I've been waking up to a swollen left eye. Just like you, it goes down slightly throughout the day but each morning I awaken, it's big again.. It doesn't really irritate me or anything. At times, my eye is sensitive to light though. I have scheduled an appointment with the Ear Nose & throat Doctor and my eye doctor.. Hopefully, i'll find something out.
Hi to all. I came across this forum over the weekend after waking up with swollen puffy eyes and no reason as to why?!! I don't have any answers to the problem as such but my symptoms sound very similar to all the posts on here, puffy, red, burnung sensation and very tight skin. I have done a great deal of research but alas no firm answers. I think mine is an allergic reaction to Nickel (Allergy contact dermatitis) but I am yet to prove this, my doctor has just put me on Cetrizine.
My case is different from yours in that I have also been recently diagnosed with anterior uveitis. It cleared up after a few weeks of pred forte eye drops, but now this complication has arisen. Eye doc was stumped and referred me to an inflammation specialist at a nearby university hospital. Unfortunately, they cannot see me for 5 weeks, so I guess I just have to try not to perseverate on this...easier said than done!
As I was waking up this morning I rubbed my eye and realized it was tender. When I got to a mirror, I saw that my eye lid is swollen, mostly on the inner corner. Shortly after, it started watering very heavily and itching. I flushed it with cool water and a cotton ball, though that gave me a bit of relief to the itching, still swollen and is still very low grade dull pain.
but if i use double pillow, its not that much swollen after waking up. again if i sleep on left lateral side my left eye becomes more and more swollen.swollen eyes are aesthetically very bad looking. i am suffering a lot because of this.i don't have blurred vision or so but i wear spectacles and my power is -0.50. what is possible cause of these and what should i do now?
I had this when I was a kid. I ended up waking up not able to open my eyes, because all the goo was sticking the eyelashes together. So, you may even need to have someone bring you a cool wash cloth every time you wake up, so you can open your eyes. Always get a clean wash cloth each time and don't let anyone else use the washcloth. It should go in the laundry immediately after use.
I am waking up with a new symptom - very minor crustiness in the eye. Other than that, the inner part of my eye does not seem to be affected. Can you shed some light on to what might be the problem? I never bought into the sinus infection and thought all along I needed to see an opthomologist! Thanks for your help!
I slept last night in my stressless chair after waking up in pain at 2 in the morning. I had gone out to eat late last night and felt internally like I knew it would be a bad night. In makes think it is some how food related.
Not only this, but also a blood vessel had broken on my actual eye. I immediately assumed it to be from throwing up and the pressure, but now, 24 hours after waking with the swollen eyes and eyelids, I woke to them slightly even more swollen. I'm not a baby about doctors and weird health conditions at all, but this is seriously freaking me out. It also went from mainly just my top eyelids being swollen to also my bottom. I hear things to do: hot compresses, cold compresses, this and that...
I am 22 years old and recently came down with my first case of shingles on my upper back on my right shoulder blade, which spread slightly to my right side of my chest. I had it for a week before i figured out what it was. So I was extremly cautious and did not touch it except to clean it with apple cider viniger and put an anti itch cream on it.
Hi Everyone, I've been experiencing swollen ankles, my left one more swollen than my right one, even if I don't stand for a long time. They're even swollen after being in bed all night. I'm athletic, fit and not overweight. I have two questions: 1) is the edema a sign that HCV is progressing? and 2) can liver ultrasounds reveal mild fibrosis? My stats: 53, female, geno 1 VL 11 million infected 25 years/blood transf & frequently symptomatic (fever, swollen glands, fatigue, weak, etc.

most of the time i will stay awake for up to 3days and then sleep 2hrs waking up with nightmares .. lets just say it sucks and it seems the more you stress out the worst things seem to get.. stress like shock (when in a accident) is basically like a poison that can affect you in all sorts of ways and i know me saying to you try not to stress is like saying try flying just jump out the window but here it is anyway,, try not to stress to much ..
one morning i woke up and could barely swallow bc my tongue was so swollen. it ended up going down on its own after a long period of hours. all of that happened last week. now, i have just awakend to a swollen upper lip. i dont know how much more of this BS i can take. i dont understand whats going on with me.
It goes away after about an hour after waking up, but does sometimes return toward the end of the day (perhaps it is related to having tired eyes?) I have been to my eye doc 4 times in the last two months trying to figure out how to fix this problem. He seems to think it is allergy related and has put me on Lotemax on two separate occassions with some relief, but once I stop the drops I am back at square one.
Before this about 6 months I had a wierd noise in my ear went to the doctor and was told sometime it was normal. Not to worry! Boy was she wrong?? So as you could imagine waking up not being able to see I rushed to the doctor!! Once there they told me they though I was going to have a stroke and rushed me to get a CT scan that day. The next morning I was called back to the office, only to be told it was negative and they could find nothing wrong.
Sometimes I get the hot flashes...horrible. Other than that, getting up after laying/seating is extremely hard, I get so much pressure on my pelvic and also I get quiet a lot of Braxton Hicks...thank god they go away after a while! I went to the classes and found them very useful. Still have a tour and breastfeeding class to attend. Need to take care of a bag to the hospital one of these days.
Pain in feet and lower legs, especially in the morning after waking up.
swelling on the left side of my head's back (lower part of the scalp), I can't feel a similar swelling on the right side so I assume it's not a bone - loud jaw clicking (from the left of my jaw), especially after waking up, and for a week or so, inability to open my jaw completely - clicking of most articulations - mild pain that comes and goes in various parts of my limbs; the hands, in particular, often give me strange sensations - mild pain at the left side of my jaw, sometimes when breathin
My baby is 17 months old and for the past 6 months she has had facial swelling after waking up from asleep. This does not occur every day, but hit or miss (sometimes a week straight, sometimes once a week). We have been to every pediatrician and allergy specialist in our area without any diagnosis for her condition. All blood test come back "good" from what we are told. No genetic history of diseases on either side of families.
I want to get a good nigh's sleep without waking up 3 or 4 times not able to get back to sleep or covered in sweat. I am sick and tired of being sick and tired all the time!!! And I am sure you feel the same way. Keep me posted on what you find out about your condition. Take care!
Its been 4 months and I am still not well-at all. I have dizzeness, severe headaches and pain, and always feel like im under water or in a fog. Oh ya I stammer a lot and have memory loss and am so very tired and just wiped out. Sometimes I dont see things right. When will this all end? Can someone tell me what kind of meds works best for the pain in the head. I tried Vicodin but got tired of being nausea, Then I was on Butalbital and that was worse-didnt help the pain.
Hey~ I feel your pain. Last year I woke up with this SEVERE eye infection... my entire face was swollen. They told me (initially) that it was just pinkeye, and gave me drops. The drops DID NOT help. This went on for over three months. Every time I thought the infection was going away, it would come back with a vengeance. After the "pinkeye" finally cleared up, it had caused permanent damage. I no longer produce my own tears... it hurts especially bad in the mornings and at night.
My ophthalmologist said it was because of an irritation, excessive rubbing or in my case I wear disposable extended wear lenses and while I was sleeping it probably irritated my eye. The bubble in my eye either popped or went down and now the corner of my eye is just blood shot and a little irritated-itchy. My doctor said to just leave it aloneā€¦ hope this helps. I know it is a little creepy but at least it goes away eventually!
), I found that that evening my eye was itchy. The next morning my upper eye lid along my eye lashes was red and swollen. No eye make up or contacts here. I also do not have dry skin near my eye at all. And I have never had any problems with allergies. I want to rub the heck out of it and am trying to refrain. I'm not sure that this is the same as everyone else but just thought I'd add in case anyone has any ideas for me.
I FELT GREAT after waking up in recovery, Very minor pain, and went home after lunch that day. What a Christmas Gift..at least I got to go home.
Again, this has only happened when lying down with my eyes swollen. Also, sometimes after waking up, a small "bright" dot will appear near the center of my vision that goes away on its own. This dot has the same size, shape, and location EVERY time I see it. Am I just being a hypochondriac? I really hate to bother you guys, as you all have much more serious cases you deal with. I have had some "health anxiety" lately (thinking everything can and will go wrong with me).
