But if i have to integrate your symptoms ( tingling + twitching of eye )one test you should do is Vitamin D levels and serum calcium levels to rule out hypocalcemia.You can get your eyesight checked, because twitching may signify eyesight problems.The last you havent told me your age, but one thing that definitely comes to mind is Carpal Tunnel syndrome ( which may start with continuous numbness and tingling of hands ). I think you should do these test, and good luck for finding the cause. If they all come back normal and you still have problems, we might think of something else.

Thanks for the response.I am actually 34 yrs old and never really thought about the stuff u said.I have also been taking alot of advil lately for some foot pain.I was thinking maybe it was because of that.I'm not sure.I really don't want to call a dr because we have no insurance.So I am hoping I can figure it out on my own.But Thank you for the advice.

  • my right hand has been tingling like it's a sleep lately.i'm not sure what is causing this.my right eye also starting twitching tonight.has anyone every dealt with this before??:confused:my left eye used to twitch all the time and my eye doctor asked me if i did computer work...and at that time, i had my own typing/medical transcription business and i was in front of my computer screen for many hours. My eye doctor suggested that i look away from my computer screen about every 10 minutes or so and just look around the room because it would exercise my eyes by looking at a distance away from right in front of me. Anyway, i also get this eye twitching before i get a migraine headache, almost like a warning signal, and this i think is from stress and overactive nerves since i have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia. And for the tingling in your right hand, it could be a few different things, but usually its nerve compression/circulation getting cut off to nerves/blood vessels that go down your arm to your hand. It could be carpal tunnel which is in the wrist where the nerve or circulation problem is. Or it could be cubital tunnel syndrome which is where nerve/circulation problems are at the elbow, or it could be a herniated disk in your neck that is compressing on nerves. If you are bending your wrist for too long or your elbow, then try doing that less and see if it helps. If that doesn't help then ask your doctor about it. You could need an mri to see if you have a herniated disk in your neck. Hope this helps and i pray that god will heal you and help you be diagnosed with what your problem is.
