Eye twitching cause of anxiety or something else?

Posted , 10 users are following.

For the past 1 month I've been in severe stress. Have gone through panic attacks, anxiety disorders and what not! It was a few weeks ago that my right eye started twitching and it lasted for bout 3 days. After that it was my left eye that started twitching and its been almost 10 days but the twitching hasn't stopped. It twitches for bout 5 6 seconds and then stops. There were a few days when there wasn't any twitching at all.

Does anyone else have experienced this ever? Is this something to worry bout or it's just normal?

    Yes, I've had that on and off. Anxiety, stress, and sleep deprivation seem to bring it on.

    I have experienced this when particularly anxious, after getting anxiety under control the twitching has not returned

    I have some wacky ear thing going on. Hear what sounds like a washing machine and if i move my head a funny short whine sound. Took me months till i built uo the courage to get an ent appt.end of next week,  i hate doctors overall. I believe eye twitches are usually stress related but you can always pop into an optician and ask or have an exam. But i get not wanting too cause i temd to procrastinate and out off doctors all the time. Weird symptoms are so annoying. And sometimes it is really hard to know what is stress and what isnt.

      Trust me I have this weird ringing in ears too. Im sure this all is stress related cause I saw a neurologist twice and she says it's nothing but stress. Im so fed up of dealing with all these symptoms but I think I need to get used to. Because I know that they are so not gonna leave me! sad

      Hi Esha,

      Sorry uve got this other symptom.

      Is the ringing loud or amplified when nits quiet.

      May not be same but sometimes when it dead quiet I suddenly notice a ringing. It's more of a dull drone. I believe that is something everyone can hear but when your mind is Pre-occupied by thoughts u filter it out.

      Does this sound similar.
