I just got diagnosed with floppy eyelid syndrome. I’m going for my sleep study next week. I’m pretty depressed about the diagnosis even though I knew I had it. I’m only 29 years old and I’ve been considered a pretty woman despite being a bit overweight.

I know it’s so shallow but it puts me in a depression. Has anyone else been diagnosed with FES ? Has treating sleep apnea helped? What’s the long term prognosis for FES? Does it ever revert? I tried asking my eye dr all these questions and she literally said “we all might die next month don’t worry about it, wear an eye mask to bed.” She was so nonchalant for someone who just told me I had HORRIBLE FES. I guess any info would be very helpful because not much is online about it.
