Swollen eyes when waking up

Common Questions and Answers about Swollen eyes when waking up


Woke up yesterday and both eyes were swollen, my eyelids and big puffy bags under my eyes. I have also been dizzy when I bend over. Very unusual for me. What do you think it could be?
and he wore them to bed the other night waking up this morning with his eyes swollen shut and red. He couldnt look at light. His eyes were very irritated. I didnt see any type of puss just that they are swollen and that he is in so much pain.He took the contact out. And there isnt any thing in his eye. Now that he is sleeping i can see his eyes look swollen still. Mainly around the lids. I'm trying to think of anything else... I know when he had me look to see if anything was in his eyes..
For the past few weeks I've been waking up with my eyes almost swollen shut, and throughout the day they get less swollen, but the swelling never goes completely away. Also along with that, my eyelids are extremely dry and have a dry texture. Under my eyes is really dry also and there's creases under them that usually are there, and the dry skin seems to be scabbing in those creases. My eyelids are really red and also under my eyes.
For the last couple of months, I've had a weird thing happen in the mornings. When I wake up, like when I open my eyes for the first time in the day (or sometimes at night if I get up to go to the bathroom), I'll see a ring of light, or almost an orb of light, for a second or two, and then it goes away. It's almost like a flash or light, but it's in a circular shape. It seems almost like I'm seeing my eyes open from the wrong end, if that makes any sense.
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.
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).
During the night I can remember waking to scratching my eyes at the crease of the eyelid and below the brow. When I woke this morning my eyes were swollen and beet red I am wondering if that vanilla bean oil could have been under nail area and been an irritant to cause the swelling and redness? Not itchy now but very sore.

I've been suffering from the exact same symptoms for about 4 years now. Pain on waking, excrutiating to turn or move, but when I stand up and move around, it's gone! There are too many posts on here about the exact same thing for this to be going undiagnosed. I've been told it's my hip, back, urinary tract, bladder, intestines.........well, I know it's SOMETHING down there. It seems that it would be muscle or joint related because of the way the pain goes away with movement.
we are sure its the chem trails bombarding us with toxins , yes they have proved its chemicals they are spraying look up at the skies when you get up and do some research they have tested the ground water and the soil ..all true, there are lists of the chemicals...
They appeared after a trip and i noticed them after i turned the air conditioner on during the plane ride back. Within two days I was waking up with clear mucousy discharge and painfully itchy red eyes. I went to a local opthamologist (well kinda, turns out she wasnt a certified/educated opth, and im in Kuwait) I was put on a weeks worth of broad spectrum antibiotic drops that only made them worse.
I have been waking up every day with only my left eye swelling up. The bottom lid primarily. There is no sign of exterior redness, no sign of an infection anywhere, however when I pull the lid down compared to my other eye is is red inside versus being a fleshy color. The tear duct is also overworked I believe because I am able to press down on my right tear duct and create a little crinkly noise, which usually signals to me that its working ok.
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.
I also have pain between both eyes and lots of blurry vision when taking deep breaths in, and I notice my nostles sucking themselves in like a sucking vacuum which makes it difficult to breath. Im still not sure who to beleave because I also get chest pains near the breast bone that doctor thinks is Gerd..My ENT wants to correct the septom and reduce the size of both turbinates..
I have never had this issue in my life, ever. Suddenly I wake up with fluid filled bags under my eyes, that don't go away all day....is it thyroid related? My last labs interestingly showed my T3 and T4 levels and just less than 50% of the range, up until this point my levels had steadily increased with a steady increase in medication. This was the first time although she had increased my medication 8 weeks prior, that my levels actually dropped.
Oh my gosh Pam, I had my salivary gland swell up and the whole right side of my face was swollen along with my right eye. I have had dry mouth so bad that I cannot talk at times without stopping and taking a drink of water. My tongue will stick to the roof of my mouth at times. I know, GROSS! Anyway, when my salavary gland swelled up the doc put me on 10 days of anti-biotics and said it should be gone in three days. it took two rounds of meds and three weeks to go away.
Well that is finally gone after months, now I am getting the swelling in my eyes in the mornings and my bottom lip has swollen up, this morning I got a raised bump on the side of my chin then my lip on that side swells up. I also have itching on the bottom of my feet and my hands itch sometimes. I take two benadryl for everything and its seeming to help me so far. But Im 52 and have never had these problems before. Never was allergic to anything in my life.
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 ..
But then very odd things started happening and still does. When I wake up in the morning sometimes not all the time I cannot see out of my right eye. It doesn't last but about 6-10 seconds and full vision returns. 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!!
But sitting in a moving car for that long was tough! Especially on the way back. I really ended up feeling nauseated for a little while and was glad when it finally passed. Other that that, the trip was fine. Our meeting went well. I think I'm going to start working from home soon. I've been getting more and more exhausted as each day passes. I woke about 4 times last night between peeing and being kicked by baby! I can't wait till next Mon for my u/s.
About 4-5 times a day, it starts to water like I'm crying, becomes very painful, and I can't open it for about 1-2 minutes. It seems to happen when I'm exposed to bright sunlight, waking up in the morning, staring at my computer screen for too long, or if I rub my eye. Last night, the problematic eye looked a bit more swollen than the right and was slightly tender to the touch. I started putting drops in it that I got from a doctor when I had an eye infection a few months ago.
There was also some popping and clicking in the middle of my neck and when I swallow it feels/sounds like tiny bubbles are traveling back up my throat. Sometimes I have low grade fever which comes and goes but never for very long. Other symptoms include: Pain in the neck which feels like stiff neck (left side) Pain in my chest and back on the left side just below the collar bone through to just below the shoulder blade.
I believe the pressure of the goggles has over the years contributed to my baggy eyes and now I'm waking up with incredible puffiness. I have to put cold compresses (I use a cold moistened facecloth) over my face for 10-15 minutes in the morning. I think at some point I will consult a plastic surgeon or derm MD although at 47 I feel I am too young for this. Maybe in a few years....
Now 5 years later I'm feeling all those same dizzy symptoms this time, eyes move with head steady and I feel 'f'd up. So back on the Paxil is what my doctor did. I've been tired, waking up late, now only 4 days into Paxil, I'm waking up early (6:30 a.m) out the door running my company. I can't wait to get rid of this dizziness since Spring 2009. January 2010 I said that's it, time to go get back on Paxil. 10mg once a day.
I recently got the red bumps around my eyes (in October). My eyes were swollen shut and the bridge of my nose between my eyes was swollen so badly that I looked like a monster (could not wear my eye glasses because my face was too swollen). I was sent to a Endocrinologist and a Rheumotologist. They ran a battery of tests, perscribed a regimne of steroids and powerful antibotics. The swelling and bumps cleared up and all was well until two days ago (its back).
This is why these symptoms are most obvious when you first wake up in the morning. It’s also been shown that these same stomach juices can then travel down into the lungs or up into the ears of the sinuses. Pepsin, a digestive enzyme, and H. pylori, a common stomach bacteria, have been found in lung and sinus washings.
I too have been getting dizzy in my head when I first start to eat. I'm a 27yr old female with no known health problems or anything going on with my ears, although now that I think of it my hearing could be better... It started maybe 3 months ago. It always goes away after the 1st couple bites, but now its happening more and more often so I decided to look it up. I've been thinking its more like a chemical response...
