Twitch twitch twitcheroo

My left eyelid has been twitching for three days straight.

It’s really quite obnoxious. I keep thinking it’s linked to some sort of stress I have, some underlying thing I should be worried about.

But I don’t know that there’s any HUGE thing I need to be worried about.
Perhaps the fact that I’m concerned, however distantly and vaguely, about being concerned about stress I may not even have, is a concern in itself.





Why won’t it go away?!

    I’ve had facial twitching on the left side of my face for about a year and a half. It seems to be more pronounced if I’m tired or if a migraine is coming on. It is noticeable to other people and it really is annoying. Had an MRI and blood work and found nothing (thankfully) other than slightly low iron, which I am taking a supplement for. I’ve been told it’s stress, which is possible I suppose, but I don’t feel stressed very often. It comes and goes throughout the day and seems to be more pronounced when I’m talking. I have no helpful information for you, just thought I’d let you know you aren’t alone.

    I’m enjoying perusing your blog!

    I too suffer from that twitch- twitch- twitching. My left eye twitched non-stop for nearly 3 years. Also my Right thumb. In my case it was due to hypERthyroidism and the resultant vitamin B deficiencies etc. which also trigger my migraine attacks. I also have dystonia which, however doubtfully, could have had a hand in it. This blog was written a year ago, so I hope you found some relief. If not, you might give a good B-complex vitamin a shot, and maybe get your thyroid checked. Just a thought…

    Good to see you at WEGO Health!
