Swollen eye after waking up

Common Questions and Answers about Swollen eye after waking up


Avatar f tn 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...
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar m tn 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!
Avatar f tn 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?
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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!
Avatar n tn 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...
Avatar n tn No swelling from bottom of eye. I wake up, my eye is itchy, and thirty minutes later it is about half way swollen shut. The doctor said she saw nothing wrong and that's it was probably just irritation (from sleeping in contacts). This made sense, until this morning! I did not sleep in my contacts last night! Any ideas? I usually take Benadryl throughout the day and sleep it off and it goes away within 12 hours.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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.
86664 tn?1291561395 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.
Avatar f tn 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.

Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar m tn 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 ..
Avatar n tn Even after just waking up from deep sleep, my left eye feels tired. It feels like the optic nerve to left eye is stressed out. There is some vision flicker in left eye. Opthalmologist examined it thoroughly and has assured me there is nothing wrong with my eye that he could see (he's 71 and has tons of experience). However, the problem may lie where he can't see - namely the optic nerve. Would an MRI of the brain be in order? What do you think is going on?
Avatar f tn 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.
325477 tn?1250554909 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.
Avatar n tn Pain in feet and lower legs, especially in the morning after waking up.
Avatar n tn 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
Avatar f tn My eyelid started swelling a tid bit tonight again and I mentioned it to him and he said maybe allergies but its only in that one spot in that one eye and i was curious if it could be A) irritated from the water bump (because its right by it) B) irritated nerve from my constant eye twitching Or C) the abcess related bc i get shooting pain in the nerve that runs up to my eye from my mouth. Suggestions?
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar n tn This time it has swollen up for 4 days and did not go away. It is just the top of my nose and the circling areas. It hurts bad and looks like rudolph the red nosed reindeer. It is swollen like a balloon... Does anyone have a clue what it could be. I can breath fine and have no dicongestive problems.
Avatar f tn 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!
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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.
