Unexplained swelling of the lip or eyes without any predisposing disease is frequently caused by allergies. An allergic reaction can occur suddenly, even in a person with no previous history of allergy.This swelling of the lip or eyes is called angioedema.It is the rapid swelling (edema) of the dermis, subcutaneous tissue, mucosa and submucosal tissues.Symptoms include swelling of any body part which appears suddenly and comes and goes.
Diagnosis is by clinical examination and complete blood tests,electrolytes and renal function tests.Treatment is by antihistaminics and steroids.
Other possibilities of swelling of eyes may be acromegaly,Crohn’s disease,cardiac or renal disorders,herpes and myxedema.It is very difficult to make a diagnosis without examination.So pls get yourself examined by a physician and the diagnosis confirmed.Also sometimes angioedema can be life threatening when it involves the larynx and airways.
Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional queries.
