Hello Ed,

I was trying to chat live with you but live chat was not working.

It is good that you are scheduled for a checkup with an eye doctor.

This can be caused by a condition called Myesthenia gravis.

Weakness of the eyelids specially during the veining and night is a typical first symptom of this condition.

It is an autoimmune condition leading to easy fatigability of muscles.

Diagnosis is mainly clinical - tests like acetylcholine receptor antibody tests are done.

Treatment is with Neostigmine. Immunosuppressants may also be used.

Discuss this condition with your doctor. This will lead to an informed discussion and help in finding a cure.

Take care.

Hope this shows you the way forward - wish you good health and a quick recovery.
