Hi,

Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. Im sorry to hear about your symptoms. Now from what ypou are describing it sounds like that you may have developed ptosis of the eyelids. This is a condition in which there is weakness of the muscles of the eyelids and this causes them to droop downwards. now this can be due to various neurological causes including myasthenia gravis and various nerve disorders particularly the cranial nerves. If this is the case then it would be easily diagnosed with the help of a simple neurological examination and also with the help of a simple EMG test. The treatment would be with various medications.

Other causes of the dropping eyelids could include a local muscle disorder such as blephrospasm and also other local eye issues. this would be diagnosed with the help of a local eye examination. The treatment can be with medications or surgery.

I would recommend that you have this evaluated by visiting your doctor and have him do both of the above examinations, if they show any significant changes then get the above tests done.

Do you have any more questions?
