Xanadu, I hope you get diagnosed very soon.
mrrunon, did you mean to say you can't keep your eyes open? I don't know about not being able to keep your eyes shut, although come to think of it now,there is a neuro exam for mg where the patient is told to to close their eyes as tightly as they can and then the neurologist will pull up on the eyelid and some patients have trouble keeping their eye closed.
Okay, I just found another reference to some patients not being able to keep their eyes completely closed during sleep.
I'm sure other people know more about this. I'll tell you what: if you still think you might have mg the best thing to do would be to start a new topic and explain a little bit about your symptoms. You'd get the most help and the most feedback that way.
At any rate, whatever you decide to do, I wish you the best of luck.
