Droopy eyelid, pressure on one eye??

A little over 2 years ago I started to have a droopy eye (right eye). I first noticed it in pictures. My contacts started to get really uncomfortable & started to burn when I put them in. I only wore my glasses for a month, then switched to the Daily contacts. Droopiness never went away in eye. Horrible pressure over right eye, headaches constantly.

I had an MRI, went to a million opthamologists, neurologist, optomotrists, general doctor, everything. My MRI came up with some white spots on my brain, on the right side. My latest MRI (last week) shows the same spots in the same places. So the doctors say all is OK. No one can ever find anything wrong with my eye. They say it's fine, all is good.

I don't know what to do anymore! The pressure is unbearable. It almost feels like I can't focus with both eyes simultaneously. Like my right one is off a bit, but they say I don't have strabismus. When I look in the mirror, I can only focus on one eyeball at the same time. Randomly, like once every few months I CAN focus on both eyes in the mirror, and my eyes will feel better. It's like, sometimes they get better & are OK for a day or 2...then it will go back to being "off".

When my contacts are in, it's fuzzy on the inside of my right eye, like the contacts aren't in correctly. My eyeballs just don't feel right...I never had this problem before. I feel like my eyes are just not working together anymore.

The only way I feel better is when I press on my eye, or press around the eye. That helps a little. Any ideas? I'm so sick of having the doctors tell me I'm OK. Oh, sometimes it seems like I'll have crazy allergies in my right eye too. And that really makes it extra droopy. And when I'm tired. Oh, and when I just recently had a C-section my eye was SO droopy in the pictures. WHY???!!!

Thanks in advance. I'm so sick of looking tired all the time!!!
