Hey guys; it's been forever

I think I can get a good feel from all of ya what may be wrong here; I'll post pix, I just have to remember to take them before cleaning off Rozzie's mouth.

Roz has been eating well like normal, but she developed this strange almost gasping... it's similar to a resp infection sound, except I hear no sticky sort of mucus-y noise like if it WAS a resp infection. We notice that she does it at night when her cage (40 G BR for just her) gets colder (lights out of course). Day time, her bask spot is under two 150 watts; we were reading at 91 F 6 inches off the bask spot, so temp isn't an issue during the day (although my electricity bill's gonna get to be an issue, lol). I used to have her heat rock on a timer for the day to help heat the sand on her cool side, but since she seemed to be gasping a lot, I took it off the timer to keep it on 24/7 (also to the detriment of my elec bill). She's slowed down on her cricket intake, and I'm noticing that her left eye has been tearing a lot to the point that she won't open her eye. I've been cleaning it carefully with warm water, now I noticed that the same thing is happening on either side of her mouth. Can't locate any vets that look trustworthy in Savannah, I'm out of my territory here. Has anybody seen this before? Any ideas? Thanks everybody!
