Hello guys im pretty sure its a psychological issue but for the past 4 days i keep thinking about myself blinking and i seem to blink like a machine gun every second... I dont want this to be a bad habit and want it to end... Its starting to get worse. Im currently using dry eye drop to relieve myself and that might also be a facotr in this issue. Please help! Thanks again.

  • My little brother had a similar thing when he moved school, I'm guessing something's stressing you out and you're getting a little tick.

  • Do you have any other repetitive "tics"? It could be mild tourettes syndrome.

  • hopefully it's just a temporary harmless tic, which can happen easily. just to be safe, visit www.blepharospasm.org in case the symptoms continue. dry eyes can precede blepharopasm, so if that's an issue see your ophthalmologist for better care than just the over-the-counter eye drops. if you can prevent it from developing, you saved yourself a heap of trouble.

  • Since it's only been 4 days, its probably due to a minor eye irritation.If it continues, see your ophthalmologist for treatment; it could be chronic dry eye. Dry eye and/or genetics can lead to something called benign esssential blepharospasm. It is a movement disorder of the eyelids (Tourette's is another kind of movement disorder.) visit www.blepharospasm.org for more information.
