Any suggestions?


Also getting hot dizzy when I lie down horizontal. Not sure if it's connected.



What more can go wrong with me???

How many carrots have you eaten recently?

Think you need to go to your GP!
12/03/2007 at 22:18
who said carrots :)
12/03/2007 at 22:20
Err...not many.

Could it be all the red wine & Guinness? And a couple of late nights? Though it doesn't get any better if I get more sleep.

Dunno. I think Kirrie's right. Go to GP.

Orange eyelids? Wierd! Where's Hipps when you need her?

Well, unless it's something recent, I had a load of blood tests a couple of weeks ago and they were all clear.

I think you should lay off:

a) Eating Wotsits
b) Rubbing your eyes when you're tired.

Next patient please!

Prob a good idea to go see your GP Tor. I know you had the blood tests but presumably they weren't testing for things that could cause the orange eyelids/dizziness.

Are the whites of your eye yellowish? If so, suspect jaundice.

The only time I got dizzy lying down, I had anaemia. I had just given birth so understandable but very strange sensation. A bit like being drunk without the fun bit inbetween!

Got the test results:

"FBC, U/ED?, CCH, LFTs, CK, GLU, CRP, ANA, ANCA, C8DNA, ENA

No significant abnormality."

Have no idea what the majority of those are.


Repeat to self: I am not a hypochondriac, I am not a hypochondriac,I am not a hypochondriac, etc.

Well lft's are liver function tests.

So I still haven't wrecked it with all that alcohol?

Must. Try. Harder.


I've had lightheadedness before but I think it was low blood pressure - am usually around 105/65. Had it taken this morning after I nearly puked and fell off the osteopath's couch and it was 120/80 which is v high to me.


I really am not a hypochondriac. Honest.

You may need to get your cholesterol checked. From what you say that wasn't in your blood tests. Get a full profile done, it should be done fasting for 8 hours.

Sometimes high cholesterol leaves deposits in the skin which can cause yellow or orange eyelids. Unlikely to be the cause of your dizziness though, more likely to be a drop in your BP...you sure you're not a hyperchondraic??

Hmmmpphhhh! I'm 100% natural redhead thank you very much!

My eyes are slightly sore, but I think that's just a bit of tiredness and I've been putting moisturiser on the eyelids which is getting into my eyes.

Thank you though. You're a star.

Minty - I actually thought the lightheadedness a few months ago was quite weird but pleasant. The dizziness is not so nice as I get nauseous.

Right, off to bed. Thank you for all your contributions.

My cholesterol is...er, rather high. Between 6.5 and 7.6 last time checked. This eyelid thing has only come on in the last month though.

Will continue with the moisturiser & hope it goes away, like all good hypochondriacs do... ;o)

too much curry - colouring leaking out through your eyes?
