It's just traveled to his right eye
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Are you still there?

This is benign fasciculation or Benign twitches- usually affects eye, thigh,calf and thumb- triggered by stress or anxiety,potassium or magnesium deficiency,electrolyte imbalance.

They will resolve with rest, vitamins and hydration with Gatorade.
Stress reduction is really important too
But if they get worse, more broad or associated with weakness or numbness, you need to see your physician.

I hope this answers your question. If you would like to discuss this further or have any additional questions, please reply to my answer and I will get right back to you.

How do we know it's not a blood clot. He works out regularly and watches his diet.

As long as there is no tenderness,redness,bluish discoloration,swelling,severe pain and area warm to touch then chances of blood clot formation are very slim.

So you needn't to worry at all about it.

I hope this answers your question. If you would like to discuss this further or have any additional questions, please reply to my answer and I will get right back to you.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
