thyroid and puffy (dark) eyes

I've read there is a relation between thyroid disorders and puffy eyes. My eyes (not eyeballs) have stayed dark for some time. I've been on Synthroid for 1 week now (for enlarged thyroid) and it seems like the circles are diminishing and the eyes (skin) are returning to a more normal color? Is this a common experience or am I seeing a coincidence only?

Re: thyroid and puffy (dark) eyes

You mean dark circles? I hope that's a common experience because I have them, too. I heard they're from tired adrenals, but I have yet to be treated for either.

Halfasleep,

Exacty, I meant dark circles.

Can you tell me about the relation to Adrenal then?

As I said, mine seem to be lessening while on the Synthroid.

Re: thyroid and puffy (dark) eyes

It seems just about anything can cause those darn circles, including thyroid and adrenal problems.

I don't know much about it myself, I just found out after reading the symptom matrix on Dr. Rind's site.
