Twitchy eyes!

Posted , 10 users are following.

I've had dry eyes and itchy eyes. Have any of you had a problem with your eyes twitching? Like basically a muscle spasm? It's my left eye and it's driving me batty! It happens in the right eye sometimes but it's mostly the left. I have an appointment with my eye doctor the end of March(can't go before then or insurance won't pay). It's been doing this for at least two or three months.  I've had this before and it just quit on it's own, but its' back again.

    Hi there... I’m 4 years in to the menopause, at the beginning of last year I had that twitching  eye, just in one eye tho, it was so annoying  at times, I use to shut my eye and put my finger over it, trying to make it stop,( didn’t work tho ) and I could feel it twitching, I had my eyes tested last July and all was ok... it would come and go, god knows why, but it just stopped on it’s own, and fingers crossed it don’t come back, it’s just annoying more then even thing 🤗x

    Hi Juanita, I have exactly the same in my right eye. It seems to be random - will twitch away for days, then stop a bit, come back... I had a full eye test recently and also had a lot of tests as I get very dizzy but it seems there's nothing 'wrong'. I hate for you to suffer but im always relieved its not just me!!

    I have been peri for about six years now and have had alot of symptoms. fatty yellowish deposits (spots) on my eyelids is one of those symptoms. called Xanthelasma. My eye sometimes begins to twitched alot and its very annoying. Soon after I notice that the spots are bigger. I dont know if its connected but its just strange and such a pain to deal with.

    Thank you all for your responses! You ladies just help me so much!???

    Right after I sent the question it stopped. It may start up again but I pray it doesn't. It's been going on for weeks!

    I had it before and my eye doctor said it was nothing and it would go away on it's own. He even said it happens to him every now and then.

    Dear juanita

    Yes I often got twitchy eyes, it could be low magnesium, do you get cramp in legs and painful muscles, my twitching got better after taking multi vitamins but I still get the odd twitch but not as much x

    Hi Juanita,

    I'm wondering how things are going with the eyelid spasm? I too have had this happen to me. It is frustrating because nothing helped(at least for me) I had mine for almost 4 months. It was and still is very embarrassing. The spasms went away for 2 years but now they are back. Only not as bad as before. Doctors really didn't help me.

    Wondering if you made it to the doctor and if so, what did he/ she say?

      Doing fine, just a few spasms ever so often, not constant all day every day. The only relief was when I went to sleep. I had this before about two years ago, and so did a coworker. Not a thing can be done, you just have to ride it out until it stops, and it will. My eye doctor even told me it happens to him sometimes.
