Hi
No i have never had black marks but find my skin around my eyes do look a brown sunken colour but any unexplained bruising should be shown to your GP.

Hi thanks for the replies, i've noticed my other eye is bruising in same place,
my OH is mortified in case someone thinks he gave it to me :shock: just
wondered if this was yet another symptom that sometimes 'appears'....

Out of interest I googled this. And it seems a lot of people with Fibro have bruising on the eye. Either on the lid, or underneath.
Google it, and have a look. I just put in fibromyalgia and black eyes. Lots came up.

Hi

Try putting wedges of cucumber over closed eyes it really helps!!! I appreciate that the skin is very delicate round the eye area but i seem to constantly have the appearance of black eyes!! Plus i dont have a partner to get the blame lol, there is just me and my dog so it could well be another fibro thing. This damn condition works in mysterious ways. I would take the advice of other members and mention it to your Dr i did and she thought it may be connected to fibro as there was no other explanation.

Milly xx :-)
