Hi,
Welcome to Ja and thanks for this question. I'm sorry to hear about your symptoms. I just came online to see that you have been waiting for some time so ill quickly answer this question for you.
Usually minor black discoloration under the eyes is not anything to be worried about. This can be indicative of a number of things. The first one is a lack of sleep or even dehydration. Correcting these issues would usually result in improvement. Drinking an increased amount of water and also electrolyte rich fluids would be helpful.
Another cause of this could be a nutritional deficiency such as vitamin b12, folate, magnesium, zinc or selenium deficiency and that can be treated with simple otc supplements which would correct the problem.
Now there are other causes which can lead to the black eye but if you could attach a picture of the eye here, i would be happy to take a look to see what else it can be.
Do you have anymore questions?
