  • What causes facial,arm and hand puffiness? worse when sleeping...a layer of fluid just under skin.
    (Asked by a 51 year old man who has Layer Of Fluid Just Under Skin...facial,arms And Hands., and takes Lovaza)
    It started out about 3 months ago with slight puffiness on sides of nose bridge about 1/2" below glasses

    A month later I noticed random puffiness between eyebrows and increased puffiness on sides of nose bridge.

    After Labor Day my entire face got puffy and remained so...gets worse at night sleep with a layer of fluid like under scalp.



    Puffiness doesn't appear as moon.



    Initially Dr. Dismissed my concern and recommended a Psychologist

    Went back two weeks ago and they recommended Claritin.



    I'm health conscious and exercise frequently.



    The only Chang I've made was a testosterone treatment in Dec 2013.

    Natural injection of 11 pellets of Soy and Yam.



    For first time I had 3-4 night sweats a few months back.



    Has Antoine had similar experience and if so...was there resolution?

    Thank you
