I tried your eye lid rinses today with the baby shampoo you

Resolved Question:

I tried your eye lid rinses today with the baby shampoo you recommended. It was soothing, but the twitching was at its finest today! Interestingly, this started on Monday with the top eye lid and now the bottom one is chief since Monday. I think I'd rather have the flu than having to deal with this nonsense the entire day!

Dr. Rick :

Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.

Dr. Rick :

I'm glad the lid scrubs feel good. I think with a few weeks work you will find your eyes feel a bunch better.

Dr. Rick :

Did you go to Epcot Center as your Doctor prescribed?

Customer:

I hope so.. I am presenting to 35 people on Tuesday and I dont know how I am going to do it with my eye lids flipping out!


 

Customer:

We juts drove by it 10 minutes ago


 

Dr. Rick :

:-)

Customer:

I did manage to go to bloomingdales and nordstrom


 

Dr. Rick :

There you have it. No wonder your eyelids are twitching out of control lol!

Dr. Rick :

That should help some.

Customer:

i also bought some better eye drops


 

Customer:

systane balanced and another long lasting one which worked better than natural tears


 

Customer:

this is a temporary solution though


 

Customer:

it works for 10 minutes


 

Dr. Rick :

I've been told that Jimmy Choo's is real helpful too....

Customer:

than i go back to my lower eyelid dancing around


 

Customer:

for my wife maybe

Customer:

i also noticed a trend that it gets better towards evening


 

Dr. Rick :

True.....I only need three pair. Work, tennis and beach

Customer:

from 10-4 its at its worst

Dr. Rick :

Give it time, it will improve.

Customer:

i know! just wanted to give you an update.. we are going to downtown disney for our final evening the baby is only 6 months so we are not going to pay for anything just yet...


 

Customer:

in 2-3 years we'll return

Dr. Rick :

Congrats on the new addition. My oldest daughter is pregnant with our first grandbaby. I'm stocking up on sugar, chocolate and caffeine to give him before sending 'em home to mama....

Dr. Rick :

Payback is a bitch lol!

Customer:

ya know... I read last night that antihistamines are good for eye twitching

Customer:

could naphcon actually be beneficial?


 

Dr. Rick :

true...in moderation

Customer:

or should i continue to quit like I have


 

Dr. Rick :

no. That will just make thing worse.

Dr. Rick :

give away all your bottles of naphcon

Customer:

rather than quitting cold turkey


 

Customer:

Ha! My god father who is an opthamologist suggested that I go to a different product

Customer:

wean on something that doesnt contain naphazoline


 

Dr. Rick :

Ophthalmologists, as a general rule, are very wise and wonderful.

Dr. Rick :

true.

Customer:

he thinks im nuts right now

Dr. Rick :

Na. Just concerned.

Customer:

i just dont understand how someone is supposed to deal with this with no answers and no time frame as to when it will end

Customer:

it sorta stops life


 

Customer:

because when i was in my conference today listening to walter issacson speak


 

Customer:

All i could think about was how my eyes are going nuts!


 

Dr. Rick :

Life can be that way. Just wait until your little bundle of joy morphs into a crazed teenager...

Dr. Rick :

The more you worry about it, the more it will twitch. Chill out, dude (as my youngest child is wont to say)

Customer:

i know! I took 5mg of valium last night to see if it helped

Customer:

instead it sent me to bed


 

Dr. Rick :

but you rested.....

Dr. Rick :

Oops...my nurse just stuck her head in my office and gave me the stink eye. Gotta go. Thanks for the update. Keep me updated and take care

Customer:

yup... but it didnt cure my issue


bye thanks
