Have you ever woke up with a black eye?

Locked

#1 by valerie » Thu Jun 14, 2012 16:25

Strangest thing, I woke up yesterday with a black eye. Not really black. Swollen eyes but mainly right
eye very swollen and red bruise along the corner of that eye and across to my nose. Same thing happen
when I woke up this morning, only not as bad. At first I thought my eye was bleeding, but it's a red dark
bruise. Looks like someone socked me a good one! :shock:

Just wondered if anyone else has experienced that?

No it has never happened to me. Bruising that is. I wake up many times with puffy swollen eyes though.
Vein rupture? Did you try an ice pack for the swelling?

I googled the question waking up with a black eye?

Here's one response, sounds whacky to me!

Quote:you probably hit yourself while sleeping, when your asleep your brain releases a chemical into your blood to keep you from moving and acting out your dream but sometimes it releases it before you fall asleep or after you wake up sometimes not at all which causes sleep walking so you probably didnt get the chemical and hit yourself in the eye

That is weird. I tell you, I sleep like a rock. When I go to sleep, I don't move. I will wake up in
the exact same position as when I fell asleep. If I hit myself, I'd know it. :mrgreen:

Both eyes were very puffy. My right eye is still slightly puffy and the red bruising is still there. It's
the strangest thing. I thought that too, that maybe I have a ruptured vein where the bruising is,
which could be due to the swelling....but it's not. No rupture that I can see.

Have you ever cried so much that your eyes swell and behind your eyes feel weak and tired?
That's how my eyes look and feel. Looks like I been on a crying drunkard binge for a week and
someone socked me in the eye. :o

:?: Wondering: Could you had slept after reading a book?

I had an experience -- so tired from an upcoming exams, cramming so much, I didn't realize that I slept right over my books; the next day, off the desk, my left eye ( along with a fairly seen indentation of the manual's hard sleeve 'printed' over the bridge of my nose to my cheek ) bore a somewhat look of 'cried-after-peeling-a-bowl-of-onions'

Either way, if not -- best have a quick check-up; might be a small infection that may need some topical medication, or a quick ice-pack relief

Besides the cool compress to the eye area after waking you can consider using cucumber slices, a damp washcloth or wet tea bags to constrict the blood vessels beneath the eyes and reduce swelling. How about using a refreshing sterile eye wash for the tired weak feeling? I suggest you think about scheduling a Dr appoint if it is not improving soon.

This morning was worse for the right eye. It was very watery and swollen. Still the red bruising.
I have a bottle of antibiotics that I had left over from the dentist. I remembered them and took one.
I'll take those for a couple of days and see if that makes it go away. If not, then I'll have to make an
appointment to the doctor. If it some sort of bacteria infection or pink eye, the antibiotics should clear
it up.

No, have not read a book. But as I thought about it, it's possible it is some sort of bacteria or something
got into my eyes. I'm in a rural area and still building on my new house. It's hot here, very hot, and
very dry. I was trying to remember what I did inside the house a few days ago. I sweep it most every
day due to sawdust from the work going on. I can't recall getting anything in my eyes. There is the
outside cats which I pet but I always wash my hands after handling the outside cats...you know, they
catch birds, moles, mice, and no telling what else their furry little butts get into.

The only real concern I had about this is, bleeding inside the head. I had a headache for two days on
the right side of my head (same side as the bruising and most swelling in the eye). I know that often
when you do damage to your head, it can cause your eyes to bleed and give you black eyes. If you
have any type of bleeding inside the head, it can cause the same, blood in your eyes and black eyes.

But, I have not hit my head on anything. Besides, I am hard headed. :lol:

:shock: I think I know that kind of roach -- it's the small tiger-striped, pretty fast ones -- they bite when one's asleep, unlike the larger brown common ones. ( And that's why I keep a mosquito net close at hand to sleep in )

I never did figure out what it was and it lasted quite awhile too.
After the swelling, my eyes would itch, a lot. Mainly my right eye.

One day while shopping at walmart, I stared at the eye drops. Couldn't believe there was so many kinds and brands.

I finally settled on one by 'equate' that was a little over $8 and in a teeny weeny bottle.
I chose that one because it said antihistamine for itchy eyes and same strength as prescription.
Well let me tell you, It worked after one application. My eyes have not bothered me since.

:?: "antihistamine" For allergic reactions?

Either way, just take good care -- observe what happens in the next few days, wouldn't want to imagine you clicking ads or doing any Tasks with an eye patch ;)
