Eye twitch

Hi All,

Over the past two weeks I have a reoccurring eye twitch which comes and goes. It effects one eye only and at worst a little annoying.

I thought it might be from coffee, but had a day off the caffeine to test the theory and it twitched away.

I had an episode of Bells Palsy a few years ago and it is similar to when the nerves were regrowing. It’s on the same side of my face as the Bells too.

Wondering if this is some sort of relapse or just a vitamin deficiency.

No other symptoms.

Not seeing a neuro until October.

@cammo , from a website, “The most common causes of eyelid twitching are stress, fatigue, and caffeine.”

As you’ve eliminated the caffeine as a possibility, what about the other two?

Of course, it could just be your MS, with stress and/or fatigue making that play up. So, is it “your body talking to you”, telling you that you’re doing something it doesn’t like?

I had It a few weeks ago, I was really tired. It passed when I took a lot of rest.

Frequently get eye twitching,tiny movements not visible to others unless they state right in my face. Very annoying but not fatal, Just I’ve of those ms things we have to put up with occasionally. Mine doesn’t seem to be connected to stress, caffeine, fatigue or anything. It just is๐Ÿ˜‚

I had an eye twitch constantly for about 5 weeks. I feel your pain.

It did eventually go, not sure if it was stress from limbo land or just being tired. Or too much coffee?

Hope it goes away soon for you, itโ€™s annoying!!

My eye and lip do this and have done for years. My consultant considered Botox but we went with gabapentin instead when more of my face started to get involved.

My right eye twitches off and on but never any longer than a week. I always thought is was nerves acting up from a old injury when I was in high school. Some large boy was trying to pick me up at a swimming beach. When I refused him he launched himself into the water to swim away and kicked me in the head and eye. That eye hurt and twitched for a year. Potter
