Common Questions and Answers about Swollen eyes kidney

swollen

woke up in the middle of the night with my eyes puffy & swollen -- it's probably some kind of topical allergic reaction... but how do I get the puffiness to subside?
in early morning, are sign of kidney disorder. The renal disease (kidney) like nephrotic syndrome, glomerulonephritis, and renal failure can cause such symptoms. You need to undergo urine analysis, renal function tests and radio imaging of the kidneys to rule out the cause. You need to keep track of things (maintain a diary) you were exposed to such as food, dust, pollen, irritant like shampoo, soap, cloths, drugs etc. and you should avoid further exposure.
My son has had infrequent, yet severe break out of swollen eyes. He has had four episodes in the past 3 months. We have tracked his food consumption as well as what he has been in contact with and have not come up with anything. The only consistent thing we can think of is that each time it happens he is playing some outdoor sport and the ball comes in contact with the grass, then he touches the ball, then his eye? Can fertilzer cause this swelling?
Unfortunately, there isn't a permanent solution to this problem short of a repeat surgery to repair blood vessels(and even if this is done, there's no guarantee that there's going to be an improvement in circulation). Lastly, what I would like to know is the functional status of his remaining kidney. If his other kidney already has a problem before the surgery, removing one could place too much burden on the remaining kidney. This could push it to further deteriorate in function.
I have the same issues as everyone else. Itchy, swollen lips with a rash often accompanied by swollen eyes. I visited the dermatologist twice this week. The first time, he thought it was a peanut allergy, so I was put on anithistimines; however, while on antihistimines I developed swollen eyes and lips! Upon visiting the doctor again, I was prescribed a topical ointment for the lip area. The doc said that this condition is tricky to diagnose.
Last year was the first time I had a problem with sun burn followed by swollen eyes and puffy upper face. In each case I have used sun block. What this writer described in 2007 about her teenage daughter seems to be exactly what I experience. http://www.medhelp.org/forums/Dermatology/messages/30618.html I have had no changes in medication recently. (10 mg licinipril daily and a multi-vitamin) Twenty years ago I was diagnosed with a kidney disease which was treated.
I woke up Thursday morning and my eyes were swollen shut. I started taking some Zyrtec and Benedryl, it helped a little and the swelling went down maybe by 50%. This morning I woke up and the swelling was worse than Thursday morning. I have only had this happen once before in my life. (when I was in Vegas) The doctor told me it was because of the dry air there. That episode only lasted one day. This seems to lasting forever. What can I do???
However, it has been impossible to avoid animals and pollen (as it's spring and I have a dog and a cat) so my eyes have been swollen for a majority of the last 6 weeks. Antihistimanes don't really work all that effectively, only solving the problem for an hour or two, and ive tried zyrtec, benadryl, XYZAL (oral solution), and cloderm (1% cream). Could my derm be right? Could that cause this? Is there a name for that? What else could be the problem and what could fix it?
I have used various anti-histimines and nasal steroid sprays with some success. However, my biggest problem now is having had very puffy eyes for the last week, no redness or itchiness, just swollen eyelids. I have seen 2 doctors, who have given me eye drops and Loratadine and then Fexofenadine, but nothing is helping. I'm getting to the end of my tether, please help!
There are few causes of swollen eyelid like either it could be your current problem or due to kidney dysfunction. But in kidney dysfunction you would have swelling on both eyelids and not one. Your current problem also would cause swelling bilaterally and not only on left eyelid. I think there could be some local causes like insect bite or any injury or any irritant affecting the eyelid which could have caused the symptom.
I think this would be called pitting edema. The swollen hands makes it painful to touch hard objects like zippers or buttons. The pattern of swelling is pretty much symmetrical. It's worse in the mornings and sometimes goes away later in the day. Sometimes I can pull off my wedding ring effortlessly. Other times, it's stuck. My GP took a look at my hands and Dx me with psoriatic arthritis and prescribed Celebrex.
Hi, welcome to the forum, causes of such swollen eyes can be due to thyroid disorder, aging, allergic conjunctivitis. More sleep may cause swelling in the eyes. Also swollen eye indicates bacterial conjunctivitis. It is most commonly seen secondary to bacterial infection. Some other possibilities are viral or allergic conjunctivitis. Also swollen eyelids are sign of kidney disorder. We can not rule out the exact cause without examination.
I squirmed around trying to find any relief, but nothing I did made a difference. I had treated hundreds of patients with kidney stones, but now, I realized, I was the one who was about to wind up in the emergency room. My wife drove me to the hospital where I worked, and I greeted the ER director miserably letting him know that I thought I had a kidney stone.
I have had a problem with my eyes burning for months It feels like a constant fumes of vicks I've had itching and burning over my entire body kind of the itching you get from fiberglass insulation. Today I noticed that my ankle was quite swollen. I have been tobacco free for about a week after 25 yrs of smoking I thought that that might be the cause well not I've been seeing my family dr and have been taking bp meds. He said it was a reaction from the meds and switched them no help.
swollen feet; being pale due to anaemia; feeling sick etc As the kidney function declines from stage 4 to 5 these symptoms worsen and by end-stage renal failure which is stage 5 a person may need dialysis or a kidney transplant. You may clarify your doubts with his doctor. I hope it helps. Best luck and regards!
there are kind of white and red blotches under my eyes and my eylids look all red and swollen. Also the whites of my eyes have a lot of red veiny looking lines through them. My eyes feel really bad. What can it be.
Today I have started getting back pains which appear to be in the kidney areas. I have had some struggles worrying about HIV (different post) and have been a little unwell with swollen neck glands, a 2 week sore throat, a couple of very anxious nights at the 2 week mark. That said this appears to be something else which is now causing some significant discomfort, and the Kidney/back pain is concerning me. I have also noticed slightly sore eyes which may be involved. Can you help?
Several things can cause swelling around the eyes - allergies, kidney disease, hypothyroidism and infectious disease processes are a few things that come to mind right off. Maybe the neuro-ophth meant that type of diagnostics aren't within her area of expertise? Lots better ways to answer though....... for sure! Maybe your primary needs to address the issue? I had my eyelids surgically repaired years ago by an ophthalmic surgeon.
Also swollen eyelids or face are sign of kidney disorder esp. in the morning hours. The renal disease (kidney) like nephrotic syndrome, glomerulonephritis, and renal failure can cause such symptoms. You need to undergo urine analysis, renal function tests and radio imaging of the kidneys to rule out the cause and should be treated promptly to prevent further complications. We cannot rule out the exact cause without examination.
Every morning I awake with a very swollen face. I've tried propping my head up with pillows but that didn't stop the extreme eyelid swelling and puffy face ( cheeks, nose,lips ). I now sleep sitting up and although not as bad , I still awake with a very swollen face. I feel more post nasal dripping during the night sleeping up and awake sometimes during the night coughing. Is there a medical term for such facial swelling during sleep and the build up of mucus in my head.
Other factors to consider here is that the swelling is not from other underlying conditions. Kidney problems may present with a swollen face especially the areas around the eyes. You have noted this only each time she wakes up in the mornings? Any swelling of the extremities?

Lately I've noticed that both my lower lids are swollen. It looks like fluid build-up. Is this a sign that one of my organs such as my liver is getting worse?
I feel each and every day almost all times. In the morning my eyes are puffy and fell like i had no sleep. Some time i feel pain in my chest (upper left side) which i wonder related to my left neck pain. Sometime i feel too tired. Sometime my hands and feet are so cold. Some time i feel warmer face but cold inside the body. No fever. I am taking medication for high blood pressure and cholesterol for more than 2 years. But my neck and head ache stays before starting medication and till now.
but certain parts became itchy and red- under toes, sides of feet, a little on top- no ankle swelling or redness. These itchy red areas become hard and painful to walk, the outbreaks last about 24-48 hours. The first time this to both feet and I passed it off to wearing new and cheap high heals for over 13 hours the day before (I teach). That day I also had some trouble with a family member who was staying with me- so I felt stress may have been a contributor?
My joints are now filling with water (so swollen). My eyes are swollen. When is it time to bo back? Any suggestions appreciated. When I had 30 stones sthatl were too big to pass (at age 22), all they could do was major surgery. I was cut from the navel to the middle of my back (horrific and painful... taking 3 months to fully recover). I am glad medical technology has made great strides since then.
