My mom has had swelling under her eyes and on her eyelids for 3 weeks now. It seems to be worse in the mornings. She went to the doctor but they said they didn't know what it could be because she has no itching or pain and is on no meds. Anyone ever experianced this? what could it be???
That happens to me whenever I have to much salt. Puffy eyes and my fingers get puffy too....hard to wear rings that normally fit. I Love salt but unfortunately I must avoid it. Also, alcohol caused puffy eyes like crazy! I have since quit drinking and limit salt and haven't had the problem at all. And even though it isn't itchy she still could be allergic to something. It happens to my mom if she eats tomatoes or tuna fish!???? Weird but true. Try an over-the-counter antihistamine and see if it works, it's worth a try. They have claritin ready tabs that just melt in your mouth and work quickly. Kinda expensive though. Just ask the pharmacist they may have suggestions too. Good luck!
Oh yeah and I heard preparation H helps swelling on the eyes...normally used for the bum but people swear by it!

Reason: added an idea
has she had any labs run on her metabolics?swelling like this can in some cases be stemming from something,like an kidneys or liver issue or imbalance of other things.the older we get,the more likely we can have problems with body system function.she really should just get an overall check up with basic labwork done just to see how things are functioning.it could reveal a problem somewhere that needs to be found out.this is just something you do when you have something kind of 'odd" just show up.i would really get her in for that look over and bloodwork soon.you can either rule something in or a whole lot of other things out ya know?i hope this is nothing,please keep us posted, FB
