Hi all

I have had a twitch in my left eye for about a year, it has been getting worse and worse and now it seems to be pretty constant, it's a slight flicker of my eye lashes that I can't control I seem to get it more when i'm at work, but it can sometimes happen when i'm relaxing reading a book or just having a chat with a friend. As I said it seems to be getting worse and I can now feel a slight pressure sometimes under the eye, my right eye is starting to do the same, although no where near as bad a the left, but I can sometimes feel a pressure at the bottom corner of my right eye.

I also sometimes get small muscle spasms over my body, which could me anything from a small twitch in my arm, to a twitch of a toe. I'm not sure if the problems are related. I also have a headache sometimes, move of a pressure which isn't that bad just a noticeable pressure in my left temple.

Any advice or ideas on what is going on would be greatly appreciated. This is driving me insane.


Thanks
Ellie

  • This sounds a bit like a tic that is characteristic of Tourettes syndrome. But there are many other things that could cause tics. http://www.wrongdiagnosis.com/sym/tic.htmhttp://www.wrongdiagnosis.com/t/tourette_syndrome/symptoms.htm But other possibilities, more focused on the eye, that could cause this are eyelid myokymia or benign essential blepharospasm. http://www.wrongdiagnosis.com/sym/eyelid_myokymia.htmhttp://www.wrongdiagnosis.com/b/benign_essential_blepharospasm/intro.htm If you feel these twitches are getting worse, you should consult a physician or see a neurologist.

  • An attention-grabbing discussion is price comment. I believe that it is best to write extra on this subject, it might not be a taboo topic however usually people are not enough to talk on such topics. To the next. Cheers.

  • Muscle twitching or eyelid twitching is causes by nerve signals from abnormal brain activity. I also had them a few years back together with finger twitching. There is nothing to worry about. Just do exercises and you will be fine. It's a good stress reliever.
