Eye Swelling/ Raccoon Eyes

02 February 2008 - 01:07 PM

Hey guys! I was just wondering if anyone has problems with facial swelling, particularly swelling around the eyes and nose? I've had that problem for almost a year now. And I also have sensitivity to light and dark dark circles around my eyes. I've been to several ENTs (ear, nose, throat doctors) all of which ruled out sinus problems. I have environmental allergies, and I know those can cause my symptoms, but even my allergy meds don't really seem to help. I wouldn't be too concerned but like I said I have had this problem for about a year. Any help would be appreciated!

Still Miserable!

Hey ya'll! Well I'm going to vent! I was diagnosed 2 months ago and have been gluten free ever since, but I'm not feeling any better! I also have allergies to milk, cheese, eggs (yolk and white), yeast, tomatoes, beans. Iam also allergic to dust mites. I have GERD. I take aciphex for that, and singulaur for my allergies! I am always severly deficient in vit D when my blood work comes back( I would go tanning but I can bearly move) so I take supplements for that! I just ordered some aloe vera juice to help with my gastritis (i've read that it helps with bloating and healing of the stomach).
I really dont know what to do anymore, I've been to so many doctors over the past 2 years, Gastroenterologists (sp?), allergists, even alternative medicine doctor. None of which have really helped! I have been tested for thyroid (neg), and my CBCs are always normal! I have had so many procedures and most come back negative.
My symptoms are as follows:
extreme fatigue
brain fog
trouble concentrating
swelling numbness around the eyes
Painfull joints
double vision
Numbness all over my body
tingeling in the feet
Bloating (five months pregnant type)
Trouble breathing

All of those symptoms are very debilitating and have forced me to quit my job and pretty much quit my life!
Anyone suggestions? I'm about ready to give up! And the first thing I would do is go get a HUGE cheeseburger and milkshake from steak n shake! LOL
Well I hope you all have a better day than me!!!
