After spasm-Eye has been twitching and watering for 1 and half year now

Posted , 3 users are following.

I had a spasm during July 2016 and was fortunate enough to get rid of it in around 3 weeks with some medication. ?I have not used any tablets after that. But ever since it got cured, my right eye twitches at times and waters almost everyday. I could not put it in words but, it's not like twitching but there's a nerve movement in my lower lid when I chew,even a little pout in my lips, and laugh, and eye waters during all these.

Spasm did not come back, neither did any symptoms except continuous eye watering since 2016. Could anyone please let me know what this could be ?

    What you describe is typical of the start of hemifacial spasm Riya, but the eye does not normally water like this.  Hemifacial spasm is not a constant thing and can be very intermittent.  Many people find that the triggers for their twitches and spasms are the things you mention (eating, chewing, laughing etc).  In your situation I think I would consult an optician or eye specialist in the first instance.  Sorry not to be more helpful.

      My eye waters as well. I had graves disease but medication cured a fee years ago. But now with me hemifacial spasm my eyes water occasionally . I also have raynauds. I am wondering if all connected some how. I did botox but the results were not great enough to justify the horrific expense. Wondering. what medication you have tried? My neurologist is not helpful and doesn't. have any suggestions .
