Eyelid Swelling With Flares?

Hi, it seems that I get swollen eyelids while I'm flaring, does anyone else experience this? Any idea what it could be from?

Re: Eyelid Swelling With Flares?

I have not been diagnosed yet, but I too get eyelid swelling. At first I thought that it was an allergic reaction to something, but it seems to correspond to my allover body swelling as well. Does your do this?

Re: Eyelid Swelling With Flares?

I don't think mine is allergic right now (though in the past when I tried Mobic and Relafen, my eyes swelled almost shut, which I'm thinking might have been an allergic reaction)..however I am not taking any anti-inflammatories now. My eye swelling seems to come on when I flare up with joint pain, stiffness, I now have lowgrade fever (though I dont always), fatigue, headahces & some other symptoms. I never seem to get the eyelid swelling without all these other symptoms.
