hey yeh it's a common thing with lupus...
I think it's called edema swelling in the legs and around the eyes.....

So ur not alone....

Hi Leaf!

I just wanted to say that i too am getting puffiness under my eyes that ive never had before. I kept telling my husband that i have EVERY lupus symptom except swelling and an itchy BUMPY rash but for the past week or so its been quite the opposite.

In fact, im extremely itchy as i type this. UGH

Antihistimines do help though so go stock up on some Benydryl if it gets itchy!

Good Luck!

I too get that little suitcase bags, the puff action happening on my cheekbone just by my eye and on my lids. I have high cheek bones...but I find my is some sort of allergic reaction..to what? Unknown. I just pop a prescribed Xyzal or Clarinex, prescription and it is deflates...

Matter of fact I look like a cream puff now....
