I am wondering if puffy eyes could be another symptom of celiac or gluten sensitivity ( I do have other symptoms). I woke up last Tuesday and the area under my eyes were extremely puffy, I thought nothing of it but they still haven't gone away or gotten better at all. I've tried everything from allergy pills, eye drops,cold spoons,eye creams and cucumbers. Has anyone ever had this happen to them before and could it be related to celiac?

I get puffy eyes quite often but I have been gluten-free for a couple of years. I have hypothyroidism so I think that is what causes my problem with puffy eyes.

 

Best wishes.

Allergies and the meds that treat them will cause me to get puffy eyes and dark circles.  There isn't much I can do for them other than take benadryl, which will make me need to nap.  Have you tried an antihistamine to see if it helps?
