Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Ok, hopefully you can get a sense for the swelling from this. Not sure if it does justice to the full extent of the swelling. It's the left eye
(Sorry about the delay; was having Internet connection probs)
You're there, right?
ok -- could this be linked to a food allergy? i ate a lot of dairy the day before i woke up with this, and i usually avoid dairy because of less-dramatic symptoms
So what would I be reacting allergically to? I don't have pollen or other allergies, normally
Just want to be sure I avoid whatever it was that make this happen in the first place!
I mean, that made this happen in the first place
That makes sense. I have moved to NYC and a new apartment recently so it's possible there are new environmental allergens around me
So a Q based on my preference to avoid overmedicating whenever necessary -- how likely do you think this is to go away on its own, if I rest and apply cold compresses and drink lots of water and stay healthy? And/or, of the treatments you advise, are all of them absolutely necessary or could I do without some of them?
