Anyone feel tingling/jitters on face under eyes?

I have been using different products for delicate eye area. With 2 differ. products I got tingling/jitter sensations and sometimes they lasted all day. If you got close up and stared under my eyes you could see mild jitters. Has this happened to anyone? Also my sister says I need more calcium? I need a good product for my delicate eye area. I have dry skin so I'm experamenting.

Re: Anyone feel tingling/jitters on face under eyes?

Do you mean like a little quick muscle tic under the eyes?

I began to get them.. under the eyes, in the cornor of my eyes and finally my eye lid actually started ticing sidways! Got worse and worse and became constant!

Went to the Opthalogist (Eye specialists however you spell it)
Happily he had an asnwer.
Dry eyes,
My wonderful muscles around my eye were actually doing this ticing in self defense in an effort to massage the area and draw more moisture via my blood sytem toward the area.

He recommended that I hold a hot washrag just inches from your eyes for a while. Sort of have the hot wet wash rag cupped in your palm around your eyes . Sort of letting the steam do the job, but not actually touching your eyes. The moist warm heat will help that area.
He recommended I massage (very gentally) around the area with my finger tips about 50 times daily useing Baby shampoo. Baby shampoo (the No Tears kind but any brand you like) cuz it won't hurt your eyes if it accidently gets in the eyes.
He says doing it while bathing is a perfect time.

Took a little while but his ideas WORKED for me.
My eye area muscle tics are gone.

BTW I also enjoy doing it cuz it feels rather pampering!
Hope that helps.

I had known Dry eyes before this and constantly use 2 diff brands of over the counter eye drops but apparently it got so bad my eye area muscles decided to help me out.. isn't our body an intelligent thing?

Re: Anyone feel tingling/jitters on face under eyes?

Thank you Snowmelts for your information. Eye tics/jitters have gotten better. I am increasing magnesium and eating bananas and this has helped. I have also been trying to get more sleep to rest my eyes. I do think I have dry eyes and guess I will use my thera-tear eye drops too. Best regards to you and your situation.
