Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
Do you take any medicines or have any medical problems?
No medicines and have no medical problems, pretty healthy for the most part
Can you see the lid twitching sometimes when you look in the mirror or is it only something you can feel?
i can actually feel my eye twitching all the time. when i talk to customers i have to put my finger on my eye to see if it will stop. and it won't. i can see it twitch in the mirror. mostly on the bottom of my eye. and lately it's been the to eyelid also
Ok. What you are describing is something called myokymia. It is pretty common and is not a sign of a brain tumor :o)
is there something that i can do to get it to stop. or will it evetually go away in more time
Yes. Let me give you some information on this condition:
Myokymia is an involuntary, local twitching of a few muscle fibers in the body of a muscle. This twitching, if it occurs in a limb, is not strong enough to actually move a joint but can be felt and sometimes seen as an area of quivering. Myokymia commonly involves the eyelids and muscles around the orbit. It often appears and resolves for no apparent reason and has not been linked to any underlying significant pathology. What causes myokymia? Studies have shown that it is associated with anxiety, stress, lack of good sleep, high caffeine intake and the use of some drugs. The best way to treat myokymia is to get more sleep, decrease caffeine intake and decrease stress. The good news is that myokymia is not a sign of serious underlying pathology and often resolves on its own.
