Hi all,

My second most annoying symptom (after the pain) is whatever is going on with my poor eyelids. For months now, my upper eyelids have been slightly puffy. They're also discolored, kind of purple-y, and every little vein in my eyelids is red and very visible (telangiectasia, I think this is called?). And I get petichiae on my eyelids, too. All this I could handle. But they also sting and feel generally uncomfortable-- like you'd feel if your eyes were very puffy after a heavy bout of crying. I've tried in vain to relieve this issues with hot compresses, but it doesn't help.

Has anyone else experienced this problem, and if so, does anyone have any tricks for relief? This is driving me batty!
