Thank you for your question.
You are most likely having what is called as myokymia. Frequent contributing factors include: too much caffeine, high levels of anxiety, fatigue, stress, overwork, overexposure to computer/television monitors, and a lack of sleep.
So, yes, stress is the most likely contributing factor as far as I am concerned, in your case.
Does not sound likely to be anything serious or anything to worry about.
Let me know if you have more questions.

A warm compress applied to the eyes (to relieve muscle tension, relax the muscles) may help.
If you are taking a lot of caffeinated beverages you should reduce.
There is no evidence to suggest that magnesium will help.
