Periorbital Edema
Periorbital edema is the medical term for a condition that causes the eyes to become puffy as a result of the buildup of excess fluid around the periphery of the eye sockets (orbits). Periorbital edema is generally considered a cosmetic problem. When periorbital edema manifests, it will usually subside after disease or behavior subsides. There are many causes of periorbital edema as it could be a sign of many different imbalances and maladies.
Mononucleosis is a condition in which supra-orbital edema may occur. Supra-orbital edema describes the state of swelling surrounding the eye but beyond the boundaries of the eye socket. Mononucleosis is the commonly known as “mono.” It is commonly contracted from exchange of saliva from kissing or sharing a beverage. Along with fever and fatigue, periorbital edema is one of the more apparent signs of mononucleosis.
Excessive alcohol and tobacco use could trigger periorbital edema. The eyes begin to swell when the eyes become inundated with toxins from either alcohol or tobacco. When the liver cannot handle the toxic overload, it quarantines the toxins to pockets of flesh within the body. Most often, the swelling occurs at the feet and the ankles, away from the body’s vital organs. This is a sign that the patient has consumed unsafe levels of alchohol or tobacco. Another behavioral cause of periorbital edema is excessive dietary salt intake. Excess salt causes the generalized swelling as salt promotes the retention of water. General swelling from salt is especially common in persons that eat way too much pre-packaged food as salt is one of the most abundant preservatives in these foods. Crying can also cause periorbital edema as the concentration of salt in tears builds up after crying.
Periorbital edema manifests as a result of sleep deprivation. The eyes become irritaged as a result of sleep deprivation as well as the immune system becoming weakened. The body triggers the swelling response to keep pathogens from infective the periorbital cavities. Adequate sleep is a means of avoiding this unpleasant aesthetic appearance as well as the undeniable fact that ample sleep lends to better holistic health.
During pregnancy, women retain excess water in preparation for carrying a developing fetus. During menstruation, women also retain excess water in preparation for fluid loss from passing menses. Although periorbital edema is generally caused by this. It could be an indication that other behaviors or infections are occuring simultaneously, indicating that menstruation or pregnancy pushed the swell response over the edge.
Allergic reactions effect different parts of the body. The most common symptom as a result of an allergic reaction is some type of edema. Periorbital edema can occur as a result of allergic reaction.  Skin disorders such as dermatitis also cause periorbital edema.
One of the symptoms of trichinosis from the consumption of infected raw or undercooked pork is periorbital edema. Other symptoms include muscle pain and fever.  If these symptoms are felt in combination, it could indicate that the patient has a specific type of food poisoning and needs medical attention immediately.
