I had this all day yesterday, my right eye (well, the eyelid) was involuntarily twitching all day long and it was seriously getting on my nerves. My mate suggested I should shut it (the eye, not my mouth lol) for a while but that didn't do anything. Went to sleep and have been fine all day today. It's something I get periodically but never get around to mentioning it to a doctor.

(Apologies for this completely unhelpful, but sympathetic post)

Go and see your Doctor - a month is far too long.

Yeah but, what's your other option, let it twitch forever? It could be something serious, just get it checked out.

I used to get this with my right eye lid , I think it was the upper lid .I put it down to stress .Problems at work or sometimes to much work would set it away . Never lasted for a month though .
You need to de-stress ! Chill out and have a holiday !

I agree that you should see your doctor just to get it checked, but I don't think it's anything to worry about. I had something like this for quite a while, but it eventually disappeared spontaneously of its own accord. I have also had other health 'conditions' that lasted for ages (occasionally months) and that I thought were permanent or semi-permanent, which all went away by themselves without treatment. Hopefully yours will be the same, but check it out anyway. If you're in London or not too far from here, or if you're prepared to travel, perhaps request your doctor to refer you to one of the best eye hospitals in the world: Moorfields Eye Hospital. Having said that, I understand that it's more an eyelid than an eye issue (though I'm sure that Moorfields would be happy to help) and this may be a last resort as I honestly think that this will go away soon.

would love another holiday, got to wait till next year now though lol. it says on that website it can be stress or fatigue.
#20
watched too many porn videos?

lol just kidding, it's probably several factors. stress, eye strain and tiredness (too much coffee?) does trigger it. try to relax and think of other nicer things you could be doing right now.

I get it when I'm tired.

No point in going to see GP. Instead make appt to see optician. Normal occurence in late teens when stressed, eg.g exam time.

Whatever, just make sure you get it checked out properly and don't assume anything

Hi I had this happen when I split from my hubby, was told it was a nervous thingy and the doctor put me on beta blockers, they worked within a couple of days and ive never been bothered by it since, didn't need to take any more tablets. hth
#25
You haven't been suffering any migraines, have you? The two seem connected. Try cutting out the cheese, caffeine, chocolate and red wine for a bit, see if it makes things better.

I get that when I stress too much.
take time off from work, sleep well and it should be ok.

What you quote is opinions, not evidence.(Holland and Barrett level). Eye twitch occurs in many people at sometime in their life, it comes and goes.

When it does stop, you could just as easily assume it was because you took a laxative that day, as taking magnesium (probably a lot cheaper too).

shut up, well then I suppose most doctors and GPs are wrong, I shall let them know that your vast medical expertise is superior to theirs, on my way to A&E in abit and will let you know the response.

oO You going to AE with an eye twitch ?? You deserve a 6 hour wait with that one!

NHS Direct would have saved you a lot more time

You can quote all sorts of quack sites that recommend whatever they sell to cure this.

Funnily enough we don't prescribe magnesium (except in rare kidney diseases). Eye twitch will go by itself, whatever you do.

:| please don't forget to let me know the response from AE
