My eye is twitching - February 19th 2010, 03:28 PM

Now i know what you are thinking, just search it up, and trust me i have but this is a little bit different and i can't figure out what it is.

Lately my eye has been twitching, and no it isn't the eyelid like most people think it is, it's the eye itself, like it is having spasms. I have tested this and it still happens when i have my eyelids all the way up and can feel my eye spasming out... So does anybody know why this is happening or how i can stop this?

thanks in advanced

If it's really worrying you, I suggest talking to your doctor/optician about it?
I haven't heard of anything like this before, and if google dosen't know what it is, I think you should go get it checked, just to be sure.

Hope your ok,
Maria~

The best thing you can do is go to your optometrist or doctor in the near future. Twitching can be a sign of so many different things, there's really no way for us to properly narrow it down.

If this is occurring briefly, especially if tired, excited, drank too much caffeine or caffeine-like substances, etc..., then I wouldn't be too worried.

If it's not simply the eyelid, then it may be a muscular or neuromuscular problem. Which specific part I haven't a clue because there's so many. It could be a result of cranial nerves III, IV or VI (N-III, N-IV or N-VI for short) or it could simply be a much smaller nerve, or simply an issue with the muscles themselves (i.e. tonically active, what the cause would be is puzzling me if there are no other symptoms). In the more worst case scenarios, you could have a pathogen or even small worms affecting the neuromuscular junctions and the muscles themselves. Best bet is to take a trip to the doctor and eye doctor.

Since the best various answers have been given, I'm going to go ahead and close this.

Just keep in mind, we can't diagnose you. The most we can give are suggestions and directions to go in. Your doctor will ultimately have the answer you're looking for.
