    Question Eyelid Twitching...HELP, please ???


    About a week ago, I started taking some OTC medicines for a general cold. The meds had phenlephrine in them. I noticed that my left eyelid was twitching almost ALL the time, but not hard enough for anyone (even my mom) to notice. I stopped taking the meds Wednesday and went to the eye doctor Thursday. She told me that is was PROBABLY the phenlephrine. SHe also did a tear test and said my eyes are slightly dry, but nothing major. She gave me some special drops to apply 3 times a day. If it hasn't stopped by next Wedneday, I have to go back. She said if it doesn't go away, it could be a blood vessel pressing on a nerve or a tumor (which really scares me). Also, like I mentioned, it's not so bad where my eyes close, just a slight twinge (if that's a word!) that is very aggravating

    It's not been 2 days since I stopped taking the medication and the twitch is NOT NEARLY as frequent or as severe as it originally was, but it still does twitch/spasm. I'm not lacking sleep, stressed, or consuming any caffiene. Now, I'm noticing it in my other upper eyelid sometimes, as well.

    Anybody have experience with this? Could it just be a freak thing that will eventually go away? thanks!

    Maybe you have Lyme Disease. I know a lot about Lyme, so ask me any questions you have about it.
