Question UPPER EYE LID TWITCHING

MY UPPER EYE LID HAS BEEN TWITCHING FOR ABOUT 4-5 DAYS NOW AND I HAVEN'T A CLUE WHY.
IT STARTED OFF WITH JUST LIKE ONE AN HOUR OR EVERY TWO HOURS. NOW I CAN GET THEM SEVERAL TIMES AN HOUR OR EVERY MINUTE A CLUSTER OF THEM. IF ANYBODY HAS ANY INFORMATION THAT YOU FEEL COULD HELP ME UNDERSTAND WHY THIS IS ALL OF THE SUDDEN HAPPENING TO ME PLEASE LET ME KNOW. THANKS IN ADVANCE.

What you are experiencing is called lid myokymia and it is basically just a lid twitch which is normally caused by either stress, fatigue, or caffeine use. If not allergic, try some Benadryl or tonic water..

I heard this can also be caused by not getting enough sleep fwiw

THANK YOU FOR YOUR REPLYS.
I HAVE BEEN GOING THROUGH SOME UPS AND DOWNS LATELY, SO THOSE REASONS COULD VERY WELL BE RIGHT. BUT, STRANGELY ENOUGH IT ALL OF THE SUDDEN SLOWED DOWN. I DON'T GET THEM AS OFTEN NOW.
THANKS AGAIN.
BYE

Any chronic twitch in the body can be related to anxiety.
I have had the eyelid ones, that have lasted over weeks, and also had the much worse lower abdominal ones that twitch right in the gut.
Once I learned to relax......long term relax, it went away.
take care.
