Eyelashes curling down, does this indicate any health problem?

Eyelashes: Eyelashes can curl mildly or more significantly. There is nothing specific about health conditions that will affect this. Your upper eyelid lashes can curl downward due to eyelid aging changes. The main issue with lashes can occur when the lashes grow toward the eye. Then they can rub up against the eye and cause a lot of irritation. This is called trichiasis. Read more

Can you tell me if I pull my lower eyelash down I have yellow color on there is this normal?

Sounds like you: Have a conjuctival concretion. This is a small, hard, yellowish-white calcified matter, superficially buried beneath the inside skin of the eyelid. They are generally asymptomatic, but at times can cause eye irritation and foreign body sensation. If bothersome they can be easily removed. Otherwise they are just monitored. Hope this helps!

Trichiasis: Trichiasis is a common eyelid abnormality in which the eyelashes are misdirected and grow inwards toward the eye. They can rub against different parts of the eye which, understandably, is irritating. It can be caused by an eye infection, inflammation of the eyelid, autoimmune conditions or trauma. You can't stop it but offending eyelashes can be removed sometimes with surgery. See your Eye Doctor. Read more

No problem: The eye has to deal with eyelashes falling into the eye all of the time as a normal process. Lashes soften in the outer eye when moistened by tears and will mot cause any problem. The eye will get rid of your lash nicely. Read more

Man early 70s. Head is always down on chest? Why

Needs evaluation: So much more info as well as an exam is needed to make any sort of diagnosis. The internet is a great place to learn new things, but not really to be diagnosed for major medical problems. Weakness of neck muscles could be so many things, including myasthenia gravis.
