Like clockwork (or a monthly calendar), my eyelids-- bottom and/or top-- swell up during my period. It's actually really bad, ranging from "GASP! What's wrong with you!?" bad to mild, not worth commenting gargoylification.
My eyes aren't red or irritated or anything. I do have allergies, but this is completely different. This only started happening recently, in my late-ish 20s. Interneting reveals that other women have this too, but I can't seem to find causes or cures/treatments. Allergy medicine and eyedrops do not work.
