Eyes and tiredness.....

Does anyone feel like your eyes just never "wake up" all the way...like all day long they feel as though you've just woke up and there heavy or swollen feeling and like you just cant snap out of it..?....curious to who else feels this. Utah

Re: Eyes and tiredness.....

Yes. I do get the "sleepy eyes" sometimes. Usually it will hit me after I have been awake for a few hours. It seems like i just can't keep my eyes open, but no other part of my body seems to be tired.

Re: Eyes and tiredness.....

Hi - yes, I have that problem with my eyes also. Some days are worse than others - like you no other part of my body seems tired but my eyes feel tired and heavy. My head doesn't feel right either when I have this eye problem. I feel as if my whole face "looks drained" when I have this problem. Have no idea what causes it and what can be done. I have gone to bed early etc in the hope that it will go but I know for a fact its not lack of sleep 'cause I sleep very well!! If you ever find a solution to this let us know. It makes me depressed when I feel like this as I am always wondering what is the cuase?.

Re: Eyes and tiredness.....

a possible cause of this is meds, some do have this effect on people

lubricating the eyes with yellow vaseline ( yellow soft parrafin) may help if they are dry

Yep - I get dark circles also - I don't have them all the time but when I'm really tired or around period time.

Half of my damn anxiety is because of staring at my huge sags in the mirror. Between the dark bags and my pale complexion, I look almost deathly. My girlfriend mentions that the brim of the lower lid is almost purple sometimes. I absolutely hate it... I have no idea what to do about it.

In fact, even after nights where I feel like I have a quality sleep, I wake up as if I didn't rest at all. What the hell is that? My eyes feel tired, and the bags underneath them are terribly unnatractive.

Anyone with any insight?

Re: Eyes and tiredness.....

Yes that's exactly it! How can anxiety nail you in your sleep? That is friggin' MESSED. It makes you wonder if it's not strictly a breating pattern issue?

I have heard on numerous occasions that those with anxiety breath shallow breaths from their upper chest. Everytime I wake up I'm breating from this area rapidly. I've tried taking deep breaths from my lower abs, you know the stomach area... but it never translates to a complete breathing pattern overhaul.
