Don't know how to get help. Constantly Puffy, unrecongnizable face, nose.. etc.. help

hello i am new here i didn't know where to go for help. i am a teenager male and my eating habits have been kinda changing alot lately. it all started because i noticed i was waking up every morning and my face kept looking different, my eyes were all puffy and i was TOTALLY unrecognizable. it would last all day and soon i got used to looking unrecognizable. then i learned about food allergies and im going to get tested for food allergies.. but other than that, i was reading a lot of "puffy" posts in this section so i thought maybe i have a thyroid probelm.

my whole face is puffy, my eyes are super small and beady looking, my nose is fatter and more puffy, my hands are kinda puffy, i dont know what this all means. im getting tested for food allergies soon, but if its not that, what could it be? i dont exercise a lot, but im going to start exercising a lot

some help please

Yo... If you have thyroid disease, you would have a lot more symptoms than just puffiness. The thyroid gland plays a role in each and every bodily process, so when it doesn't work right, it will normally show up with dozens of signs and symptoms.
You can check the symptoms lists in our "Information Archive" sticky at the top of the thread title page to see if you have others.
