I hear you guys loud and clear.. I've had this eye twitch on and off for months at a time for 3 or 4 years. It looks like a vein on the side of my right eye pulsing. At times it pulses at top speed. It makes me so self conscious. I have to believe that it is due to stress and caffeine. It seems to get worse when I am stressed. When I stopped drinking caffeine it stopped for a few months. Then it came back. When I went on vacation it went away and returned when I returned to work. However, the last vacation I took it didn't go away at all. It's been going strong for the last 3 months. I feel like it's getting harder and harder to stop.
I swear it has a mind of it's own. Twice I went to a doctor for it and both times it went away before my visit and returned shortly after. The doctor prescribed muscle relaxers for me. Expects me to take it twice a day. Thast damn idiot. I can't live on that shit. It makes me feel like a bucket of goop.
This is the second time that I heard it could be a vitamin complex deficiency. Actually the first time it was a mineral deficiency. I will try that B 50-100 MG vitamin daily starting tomorrow. I hope it works!! I'll keep the board posted.
