For about a week now I've had eye twitching in both eyes, feel really silly calling the dr to ask if it's anything serious?

 

Any advice?

Kelly:

 

Could be you're just tired. I remember going for an interview a few years back and my eye kept twitching; couldn't stop it. The interviewer (owner of the company) thought I kept winking at him :lol: .

 

Sometimes the twitch could go on for days and then just disappear. Come to think of it, that was the last twitching episode and that was about seven years ago.

Kelly,

My right eye lids twitches when I get nervous or stressed. It feels so very strange, but I take it as a warning that I need to chill.

Hi Kelly, I have also had eye twitching on a few occasions. It can just be for a couple hours or several times in a day. I have had it last for maybe 3 days. It can become very irritating. If it continues you may want to see your eye specialist for an exam. EYE haven't a clue what brings on the twitches or what eventually makes them go away.


Strength and Warmth,

Sheryl

Kelly,

 

I just recently had an eyelid twitch too. Didn't last long though. I think it's quite common.

 

Linda,

 

I bet you got the job eh? :D

Sounds like it is common. I have them from time to time too. Sometimes it lasts a few hours. The last time it lasted almost a week. Very much annoying! I'll have to pay attention to what's going on in my life when it occurs the next time.


I may have Scleroderma, but Scleroderma doesn't have me!

Is it twitching when the area under the eye pulses? Mine has been doing that this week. Or, is it from being tired?

 

Thanks,

Christy

Hi Kelly,

 

Eyelid twitches are very common and usually caused by too much stress or caffeine. There is a difference though between an eyelid twitch, a Blepharospasm, and a Hemifacial Spasm. So you may want to read up and make sure you are on the safe side of things --

I used to have the eye twitching and when it got bad enough (along with the headache that accompanied them days later) to see the dr, well it turns out it was my sign for migraine! You can say I was surprised! Took the meds & it all went away! Some people get auras & apparently my eyes twitch ... usually on the side where the headache was! I know it sounds weird, but for me it was the answer! Now I don't hesitate, so if you have any other sypmtoms with the twitching it may or may not be stress related! Not that we should all be as weird as me, but those of us with Sclero do seem to find the hard way to get diagnosis! Hope you all have a great weekend!


Soft hugs your way,

 

Michele
