Can poor circulation cause swelling around 1 eye?

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)

Swelling around 1 eye

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.
