I had a skin tag/biopsy just below my eyebrow last year; ever since the nurse TORE the stitch out (incompetency?)...I got ptosis in my eyelid; plus I started waking up every two hours, unable to sleep at night....thought it was tied to the pain. Finally a neuro diagnosed w/ neuralgia; put me on gabapentin. Hair started falling out six months ago; I stopped using the gabapentin two months ago...but hair is still falling out. Burning pain has subsided but still have the droopy eyelid and when I wake up it feels like a fishing lure is on my lid.
Also my husband says when I am sleeping (rare occurence) my feet get rigid and I start kicking and make shallow breathing sounds then I gasp and wake up. I'm going to a sleep disorder clinic b/c they think I have sleep apnea. But I weigh only 120 lbs and am 5'6" so all the other docs I've seen laugh and say that I'm not a candidate for sleep apnea.
Thoughts? I'm going nuts trying to find a doctor who will help! I've been to gps (think I'm crazy); rhematologists (all blood tests fine...thyroid, iron, cbc, ana titer, c3,c4); neurologists(CT scan, MRI fine), eye doctors (vision is fine). Anyone familiar w/nerve damage and whether it can cause central sleep apnea, which is the neurologically related type of apnea (but usually only affects people over 60.....I'm in my 30s).
