i I asked a similar question a few days ago, but some conditions have changed. On Saturday, I was experiencing some soreness in my eye. I went to see an ER doctor for another problem completely unrelated and they looked at my eye and saw nothing wrong. Then on Sunday, the soreness dissipated but my right eyelid was spasming/twitching all day. On Monday, I went to see an Opthamologist who said he sees nothing wrong my eye and I don't have dry eyes
. He said the discomfort may have been from inflammation. Since Sunday and once the inflammation improved substantianally, my eye has had this twitching/spasm feeling that comes and goes pretty much all day and the only relief I get is a hot compress or my rubbing the eyelid or squeezing the eyelid together. It occurred on the top eyelid for 2 days and now has moved down to the botXXXXX XXXXXd. If I looked at myself closely in the mirror, I can see the skin twitching below the eyelid. Briefly today, the left eye twitched but it didnt bother me at all.
I get better results from the gel lubricant drops than the fluid, although its temporary relief. Sleep or closing my eyes also helps. Is there any solution to this twitching/spasms of the eyelid? How can one concentrate or effectively do their job with this issue? How long can this last? Its really annoying me and bringing my morale down. I do not suffer from stress, I am a bit of an anxious person. I think this issue is more relieving when I am outside, but I cannot really formally make that a conclusion. I am sleeping just as much as usual and nothing in my life has substantially changed.
I also have been addicted to Naphcon for 10 years and the doctor has advised me to stop that as well. For the past couple days, I have cut the Naphcon to one drop per eye per day from as much as 3 times a day.
