  • please dont listen to blaze! he posts this in EVERY single thread anyway if you sleep for to long or not getting enough sleep you could have these problems. i had a sleep problem couple years ago. i couldnt open my eyes, i felt awake but what was really happening was i was falling alseep without knowing it. and when i woke up i had to literally use my hands to help open my eyes. any info about disturbed sleep or getting to much sleep would be very helpful

  • lately iv been having trouble opening my eyes in the A.M. i have to open my eyelids with my finger to see.anyone have the same problem or heard about it?I had exactly the same thing happen to me. Both eyes wouldn't open in the morning and I had to use my fingers to push up the eye lids. The doctor & hospital couldn't find anything wrong, in fact they had never heard of the condition so I felt a little stupid. After a year the symtoms faded and now have completely gone.
