    Default Swollen Eyes

    Hell all of you fellow helpful Lupies!! My eyes have been moderately puffy and a little sore for the last few days. No cause for concern until I woke up this a.m. with one of them so swollen and sore that I can hardly ope the damn thing. Asides from being totally annoying...I want to know what this means!! I called the dr. and have an apt. tom a.m....just curious, anxious and annoyed. Thanks everyone!! Please share your thoughts and knowledge with me.

    not sure of course and I'm not a dr or anything - but my sister got a bad infection that cased her face to swell. She has RA and is on immunosupresents which can make us suseptable to these kinds of infections. She's had this problem a few times to be honest. Have you tried some benedryl?
    much love to all my lupie friends -

    Hi Sarah,
    I bumped up the report that I posted after listening to a great optometrist at the Sjogren's conference.
    I hope that it helps.
    Hugs,
    Marla

    How did your doctor's appointment go and what was decided? I hope you found Marla's information helpful.

    Peace and Blessings
