eye twitching, please help me

how you all doing today? I'm an anxiety patient, let me start off by saying that, I have been experiencing muscle twitching on and off for the last month to month and a half, and lately its been pretty steady twitching in my left eye, certain periods throughout the day, the worst being when i sneeze, laugh hard, or do a quick sudden muscle movement, I'm just wondering if this twitching stuff could be ALS or MS or am I just compulsively worrying/obsessing about it, has anyone else had eye twitching for somewhat of an extended period of time along with other muscle twitching, please help me.

Re: eye twitching, please help me

usually eye twitching is a sure sign of over tiredness, do you have late nights, have you been burning candle both ends lately?

Try not to micromanage your body symptoms so much. I was told by my Therapist thats what i do, she is correct, i notice every little sensation and twinge. Try getting some early nights and bathing your eyes with sailine eye drops also. Im sure its just tiredness.

Re: eye twitching, please help me

I had the eye twitching for over 3 months. It was pretty steady in my left eye. It finally went away on its own. I still now get it once in a while in my right eye. This happened after I had and while I had a bad sinus infection. Just be patient and it will go away. I know it was driving me crazy and its hard to relax with it, but it does get better. Everyone on this board really helped me while I was going through it. This is a wonder place to get help when you need it.

Re: eye twitching, please help me

here is a simple remedy. Magnesium. It sold magnisium,zinc and calcium tablets. Sold everywhere there is a vitamin. Follow the bottle give it about two weeks and hopefully that will be that. Stress depletes the daylights out of your body. It really is a very, very exhausting expierence. Your body needs more vitamins to deal with it, that's all. Good luck. I would also take a b-complex on a daily basis. It is amazing but we need vitamins to function properly. Good luck. If you do not believe in vitamins look up foods that have a high amount of magnisium in it, but the vitamins are easier and quicker. You can tell your doctor if you are hesitant.

Re: eye twitching, please help me

I have had this problem for years. Not right now, but there are times when I have the WORST eye twitching (the type you can actually see and it's CREEPY!) for weeks and weeks and weeks. Makes trying to have a conversation with somebody tricky! LOL! I've had the same eye twitch for MONTHS!! Honestly, I'm not sure what the cure is for it. For me, I think it's stress related, but who knows? I've cut out caffeine and my internist has recently put me on Zoloft and Xanax (only as needed to help me relax). The Zoloft really seems to be helping my mood, but I also haven't had any eye twitches since being on it.

They are ANNOYING!!! Try to relax and try some hot compresses.

Re: eye twitching, please help me

I know you probably dont find it too amusing but this is an inside joke with me and my sister. You got the stress twitch my friend. I get this when I start getting really angry or stressed out. Lack of sleep will do it to you to. It will go away on its own, down some nyquil and sleep for a good 10 hrs and im sure you will be feeling better. Its pretty embrassing when your trying to have a conversation with someone and you look like a crazy person with your eyeball twitching uncontrollably lol.
