I posted a topic but it didn't come up, so I am posting again with some information added.

I have a problem with a droopy eyelid.
It seems that I have had Horner's syndrome (difference in the pupil size and mild ptosis0 for about 10 years). It was discovered now when I went with greater ptosis to my physician. MRT, CT, chest scan show no medical problems

Picture before with Horner's syndrome:

Picture now (my lid has become more droopy:

If I try to lift my lid and rub it dome bump comes visible from behind and in a minute goes behind the eye again:

In the other eyelid end there is a small white "pimple" which they say has nothing to do with the ptosis

I consulted several eye doctors but when they see my pupil they send me to a neurologist. I think now there is something wrong with the orbit/eye that just adds to my old mild ptosis. Do you have any idea what can it be? Thanks!

  • Sorry about the last picture I amde a mistake - the "pimple is on the same eyelid but on the other end compared to the moving bump. Do you think that this moving bump could be detached muscle or a cyst hidden in the orbit?
