I feel so stupid at this point. I've tried to explain it to 3 different doctors and a nurse. My husband is tired of hearing it. My kids are too. I feel ridiculous because with all the sickness in the world, what right have I to complain? But I am afraid that something serious is causing me to have trouble with my right eye. It started 4 months ago. I felt like a muscle was pulling into the inner corner. it happened at the end of the day when i was tired, so I just brushed it off as that. But it got worse. Now my eyelid actually looks different. And it has a mind of its own. Sometimes the muscles pull in the inner corner, sometimes the outer. My eye feels heavy at times and the lid sometimes feels like it is drooping. Occasionally the eyebrow will twitch. I have had blood tests done to check my thyroid and for lyme, also a metabolic panel and cbc, and more. I have also seen an allergist and had more blood tests done there. The nerves around the eye feel strange too and sometimes my face on that side as well. At this point, I am afraid it's something serious that they just haven't tested for yet, or even thought of. I'm scrared like no one knows, yet I feel so silly. The only rest I get from how this feels is when I sleep and first thing in the morning. After that there is no getting away from it. It is slowly driving me crazy. It's the not knowing what and why and how to treat it or if it is even treatable. Will it get worse? Will it spread? There are so many questions.

I've gone on too long. I'm thankful for this forum to vent on. My prayers are with everyone here. I know many of you have much more pressing issues. God be with you.
