Anxiety and Stress Disorders (Children)
This has been occurring since my teens. I pull my eyelashes out during my sleep. It may happen once a month or 2times a month or not occur until 4 month from now. What is the cause? Cure ?
It sounds like you may have a habit disorder which may require treatment by a physician if it bothers you as it appears to. Habit disorders start with functional bits of behavior that the brain learns then it progresses in circumstances which are inappropriate or harmful. It can be treated.
