If Your Eyelid Does This, Better See A Doctor ASAP

Have you experienced that sudden twitching of your eyelid and wonders what's causing it? 

Also called eye spasms, eyelid twitching, eyelid tics, or “myokymia,” these annoying distractions are caused by the small muscles and nerves around the eye few which involuntary move for seconds or a couple of minutes.

In some severe cases it can even continue on and off for a couple of days, which can be really annoying and then disappear suddenly

If you have just the one eye twitching, though, and no other symptoms, most likely you’ve got a common condition and you don’t have to worry too much about it. 

Usually the spasms go away on their own in a few weeks, though they can continue on for months.

No matter how long the twitching lasts, however, you’d be wise to figure out what’s causing it. Even though it’s not serious, it’s telling you that something’s not quite right.

7 Causes of Eyelid Twitching
1. Stress
2. Fatigue
3. Dry eyes
4. Eyestrain
5. Allergies
6. Nutritional imbalances
7. Caffeine

Tips to Help Calm Your Eyelid
If your eye has been carrying on for a while, though, and you’re sick of it, here are a few things you can try:
1. Hot and cold compresses
2. Acupuncture/massage
3. Reduce stress now
4. Cut back on caffeine
5. Face steam

If you fix it now, you’ll be more likely to avoid more serious problems down the road. Once you have some of the symptoms you should definitely go see your eye doctor and explain what you feel.

He’ll examine your symptoms and if he suspects a neurological disorder he may refer you to a neurologist or other specialist.
