I have a bruised...

I have a bruised feeling on my right temple, where the bone of my eye socket is. A little bit of swelling, but I have not hit my head or had any kind of accident or injury.

Doctor's Assistant: Any recent injuries? How long have you been dealing with the swelling?

10 days

do you have a picture of it?

I have worn prescription glasses my entire life for astigmatism, however it isn't really an eye pain or strain. It feels like a bruise, like I did hit it on something, but only when I press. It feels like a slight pressure continually. There is a bit of swelling that is evident above my eye.

You might have slept on it wrong

is the vision ok?

The vision is okay. I have attached a photo
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
I thought it might be sleeping on it, but its been about ten days and the swelling seems to be getting worse
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
I have not tried icing it or anything along those lines

That is very odd

I have never heard of anything like this

you should go to your doctor and have it checked

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
