So in my endless internet searches I have found people saying that in an ill person, this is a sign of the final stages of cancer and now Im worried again. I recently had a mildly positive ANA test and was holding out more hope for something like Lupus (because I also have a Lupus like rash on my face and I set up an appointment with a Rheumatologist for next week) but cant find any connection there with the circles.
Ian, I think you are most likely worrying over nothing. Many many people have the puffy dark pigmented skin under their eyes. The cause can be from many different benign reasons, heredity, stress, lack of sleep, etc.....
I would also most likely think that as far as your eyes appearing sunken is probably from the puffiness under the eye just gives your eyes the false appearance that they are sunken when in actuality they are not.
Try not to stress to much. Good Luck,
