  • Omgoodness it has nothing to do with a spinal injury - my hubby's an EMT and he rolled his eyes at that one. Allergies, lack of sleep, getting sick...could be a vitamin or mineral deficiency but the other 3 things are more likely.

  • My son has that and has for a long time and he is only 21 months. His is due to his asthma and other breathing issues as well as allergies although his allergy testing came back negative....................

  • My daughter has dark circles too, but hers doesn't seem to be caused by some disease or lack of sleep or anything. She just has dark circles.
