Dr Rick Thanks for all your previous help on my twitching

Resolved Question:

Dr Rick
Thanks for all your previous help on my twitching eye. I am in Orlando on a business trip and when I am supposed to be at my best presenting, I am almost at my worst due to this twitching lower left eye lid and spasms right underneath the eye.
Of course my primary goal is to find a way for this to stop. I am reading various internet forums on the topic and many of them say to see a doctor after 1 week. Given than I saw an Opthamologist a few days ago when it just started, do I need to see a neurologist or an internist? When do I get concerned this may not exactly be just a classic case of twitching but something more serious? Or is that not the case here?

Dr. Rick :

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

Dr. Rick :

Of the two choices I would see an internist. That being said, I still don't think you have anything to worry seems like regular twitching to me.

Dr. Rick :

Perhaps a day at Epcot Center would help :)
