There doesn't appear to be other symptoms except my eyes seem to water more when I have an episode. The episodes of droopy eyes seem to occur when I am ill or run down. My eyes will not focus and when one eye is looking at a person for instance, my right eye is looking in another direction. Some days are worse that others.
Only the left eyelid droops
My ophthalmologist was the one who diagnosed Myasthenia Gravis by putting an ice pack on my eye and the lid opened. I was due for a back operation in August but the surgeon cancelled it until I was properly diagnosed by a Neurologist. I was not happy with that as I have had 5 surgeries and 2 colonoscopies during the 7 year period without any trouble whatsoever. I am looking for another opinion.
I have diabetes but it is very well controlled with medication and diet and I am taking Mestinon, blood pressure and cholesterol medication.
After my last correspondence, you sent me some information but I only received your covering letter about the information being helpful. The information was not received.
Thank you Dr. Rick. Your information is valuable. Did you mean MG as in Myasthenia Gravis or as you stated MS which is an entirely different matter?
