Pocket of fluid under eye without injury and no known alleries
Without provocation, a pocket of fluid appeared under my left eye just under the lower eyelid.  I was eating a college student's dinner of souerkraut, carrots, and a tuna melt when i noticed a strange feeling when I blinked.  Its about the size of the opening of my eye.  I didnt notice anything getting into my eye or rubbing excessively hard.  Thoughts?

Usually that's chemosis or swelling of the conjunctiva. It's like a hive and can come up suddenly. You can use some cool compresses and artifical tears or OTC Zaditor.

It should be fine tomorrow. If not or if it reoccurs see an Eye MD

There are many causes of swollen eyelids from allergy to infection to use medications like prednisone. Facial numbness can be a very serious symptom and I would urge you to see your personal physician as soon as possible.

Given its over a year warm compresses likely will not help. Do have an Eye MD ophthalmologist check your eyes. You can also try cover-up type of make up.
