THIRTEEN POSSIBLE REASONS
MY EYELID KEEPS TWITCHING

It's the outer corner, below my brow. Does anyone else notice it? Naturally, the more I fixate on it, the more it twitches. According to the sites I've visited, the twitching may be a result of:

1) Disrupted sleep routine

2) Stress

3) Fatigue

4) Too much time in front of the computer screen

5) A vitamin deficiency

6) Obsolete contact lens or glasses prescription

7) Too much caffeine

8) Pinched nerve

9) Prescription med interaction

10) Spinal disorder

11) Allergies

12) Sudden trauma, like a head injury

13) Pharmacological withdrawal from hypnotics or anticonvulsants

It's one of the least interesting options, but I bet it's #7.

  1. I go through phases when my eye twitches. It annoys me. I like your possible reasons for it.

  2. Stress will do it to me. Hope yours passes soon.

  3. LOL, that usually happens to me when I pump too much coffee and am stressed out. (Which usually happens at the same time.)

    Mine is up!

  4. My eye does that after a combination of no sleep and too much time on the computer. Here's hoping you figure it out.
    Happy T13!

  5. Mine tends to do it if I have a pinched nerve in my neck. Hope it stops soon. :)

  6. Think some of this might apply to my lip twitch? *reaching for the vitamin pills just in case.*
