It's the puffiness on both the upper lids and lower lids?
i take flurazepam as sleep medicine
lower lids specialy wheen iget up early in the morninng
well, your sleep medication is not likely related to this. However the presence of the puffiness, what we refer to as orbital or lower lid edema, being more noticeable in the morning suggest that it might be related to tissue fluid accumulation. Somewhat like swollen ankles. Do you think that other members of your family have similar lower lid edema problems?
Lower lid swelling is often a family trait.
my father had the same problem but he died because of kidney failure .i knee when he drinks liquor the next day he had that same pyffy ness
Without being able to physically examine you, it is likely that you have mild dermatochalasia. This is correctable by a common surgical procedure, often done in the ophthalmologist's office. But again, without an examination it is not possible to give you a 100 percent diagnosis. For that reason it would be my first recommendation that you make an appointment with a medical eye specialist, and ophthalmologist. This that makes sense.?
The term dermatochalasia is probably not familiar to you, so may I suggest you do a quick Google search for the condition. You'll find many excellent explanations which I'm sure you'll find helpful.
Are there any other questions which I may answer for you tonight?
