Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I can help you tonight.
do you take any medications or have any medical problems? Do you get migraine headaches or have a family history of them?
It sounds like what you are describing is called myokymia. This can involve many muscles but it is common in one of the muscles that moves the eyeball. This can cause the exact issues you are talking about.
rarely this can be a sign of serious brain problems, such as a brainstem tumor, Guilliam Barre syndrome (you would know if you had this....) or Multiple sclerosis.
The good news is that, in the VAST MAJORITY of cases it is nothing to worry about and usually resolves on its own. Decreasing caffeine intake, sleeping more, decreasing drug and alcohol use and relieving stress and anxiety solves the problem.
It can also be hard for a doctor to diagnose this problem if it is not happening during the examination or the history is not clear. What is the take home message here? I believe you will be fine and this will resolve on its own.
And, now, the obligatory word from our sponsors: :o)
