Medical terms related to Eyelid weakness or mentioned in this section include:

  • Alcohol abuse: Excessive alcohol as a symptom of other conditions
  • Bell's Palsy: A one sided muscle paralysis of sudden onset due to a problem with the facial nerve
  • Bell's palsy: A one sided muscle paralysis of sudden onset due to a problem with the facial nerve
  • Body symptoms: Symptoms affecting the entire body features.
  • Brain symptoms: Symptoms affecting the brain
  • Common symptoms: The most common symptoms
  • Droopy eye-lid: Droopiness of the eyelids (ptosis)
  • Eye spasm: A sudden involuntary contraction of the muscles of the eye.
  • Eye symptoms: Symptoms affecting the eye
  • Eyelid pain: Sore eyelid or pain affecting the eyelid
  • Eyelid symptoms: Symptoms affecting the eyelid
  • Eyelid twitch: Involuntary twitching or blinking of the eyelids
  • Face symptoms: Symptoms affecting the face
  • Head symptoms: Symptoms affecting the head or brain
  • Hereditary neuropathy with liability to pressure palsies: A rare disorder where the peripheral nerves are more sensitive to pressure than normal which results in recurring periods of numbness, tingling and sometimes loss of muscle function. The condition can affect one or more nerves such as the carpal tunnel nerve. Permanent damage to peripheral nerves can result from recurring episodes. The severity of symptoms are greatly variable from virtually asymptomatic to disability.
  • Hypocalcemia: Low blood calcium levels
  • Movement symptoms: Changes to movement or motor abilities
  • Multiple Sclerosis: Autoimmune attack on spinal nerves causing diverse and varying neural problems.
  • Muscle symptoms: Symptoms affecting the muscles of the body
  • Musculoskeletal symptoms: Symptoms affecting muscles or bones of the skeleton.

Partial seizures where the patient stays conscious are called simple partial seizures. If the patient loses consciousness then the seizure is called a complex partial seizure. Epilepsy is usually a partial seizure.
  • Progressive External Opthhalmoplegia, Autosomal Dominant: A slow progressive paralysis of the motor nerves of the eye (external eye muscles). The condition is often abbreviated to PEO which can include the eye muscles. PEO is usually caused by mitochondrial diseases such as mitochondrial myopathy. Muscles are the most frequently affected organs in mitochondrial disease. There are a number of subtypes each originating from a different genetic mutations and involving variations in the manifestations.
  • Progressive External Opthhalmoplegia, Autosomal Dominant, 1: A slow progressive paralysis of the motor nerves of the eye (external eye muscles). The condition is often abbreviated to PEO and is caused by a mitochondrial disease called mitochondrial myopathy which affects the muscles which can include the eye muscles. There are a number of different subtypes, each linked to a different genetic defect. Type 1 is linked to a defect on chromosome 15q25.
  • Progressive External Opthhalmoplegia, Autosomal Dominant, 2: A slow progressive paralysis of the motor nerves of the eye (external eye muscles). The condition is often abbreviated to PEO and is caused by a mitochondrial disease called mitochondrial myopathy which affects the muscles which can include the eye muscles. There are a number of different subtypes, each linked to a different genetic defect. Type 2 is linked to a defect on chromosome 4q34.
  • Progressive External Opthhalmoplegia, Autosomal Dominant, 3: A slow progressive paralysis of the motor nerves of the eye (external eye muscles). The condition is often abbreviated to PEO and is caused by a mitochondrial disease called mitochondrial myopathy which affects the muscles which can include the eye muscles. There are a number of different subtypes, each linked to a different genetic defect. Type 3 is linked to a defect on chromosome 10q24.
  • Progressive External Opthhalmoplegia, Autosomal Dominant, 4: A slow progressive paralysis of the motor nerves of the eye (external eye muscles). The condition is often abbreviated to PEO and is caused by a mitochondrial disease called mitochondrial myopathy which affects the muscles which can include the eye muscles. There are a number of different subtypes, each linked to a different genetic defect. Type 4 is linked to a defect on chromosome 17q.
  • Progressive External Opthhalmoplegia, Autosomal Dominant, 5: A slow progressive paralysis of the motor nerves of the eye (external eye muscles). The condition is often abbreviated to PEO and is caused by a mitochondrial disease called mitochondrial myopathy which affects the muscles which can include the eye muscles. There are a number of different subtypes, each linked to a different genetic defect. Type 5 is linked to a defect on chromosome 8q23.
  • Progressive external ophthalmoplegia: The progressive occurrence of weakness in the muscles that control eye movement
  • Ptosis: ptosis is an abnormally low position (drooping) of the upper eyelid
  • Sensations: Changes to sensations or the senses
  • Sensory symptoms: Symptoms affecting the sensory systems.
  • Shingles: Infectious viral infection occuring years after chickenpox infection.
  • Sick: Feeling ill or off color
  • Spinal cord lesion: Spinal cord lesion is a condition in which there is an area of abnormal tissue on the spinal cord.
