Hi,

With the symptoms you describe cervical radiculopathy should be ruled out.

Cervical radiculopathy can cause tingling in arm.

Also excessive intake of caffeine can cause jerking of eye.Also in some cases dry eye can cause such symptom.Stress can also be a potential cause.

In most cases the jerking of eye is usually due to non serious problem and is self limiting.

You can visit your primary care doctor for further diagnosis and management.
