Can poor circulation cause swelling around 1 eye?
11 months ago
I'm pretty sure i have a bad circulation. Since i was 13/14 my hands and feet get very cold, red and puffy during winter and i have dark circles under my eyes since i was 7 or 8 (i think they are genetic). I have hair loss, varicose varicose veins and my feet get numb easily. Since 2 years my left eye is a bit swollen and redness. i tried different treatments and took some blood tests but it looks like everything is ok. Could it be because of bad circulation? (also my sight get a bit worse than it was)

It sounds as though you have Raynaud's phenomenon.
This plus your other symptoms suggest you may also have hypothyroidism
Swelling around one eye is unusual.
Consult a Board Certified Opthalmologist for an eye examination.
After that, a rheumatologist regarding your other symptoms.
