my right eyelid has been twitching intermittently for two weeks. you know, that invisible twitching where you can feel it but can't see it. agh. i am currently filled with only the minimum of love for my fellow humanity. i reserve my merciless mocking for people who deserve it; people who are cruel and evil. apparently this is a point of contention between me and the rest of the world.

on the daily outage message on the helpdesk line: "clients are having trouble with 'wild thing'". who names an application or a database or whatever wild thing? now that's funny. not that i have a sense of humor any more, because i don't.

oh yeah! the good stuff: BOOK CLUB BOOK CLUB BOOK CLUB! TONIGHT! it doesn't feel like book club. probably because i didn't read the book this month, i read it like 3 months ago.

Twitching eyelid
I get that eyelid thing, too. It drives me nuts after a few days!! My father (a physician) claims that it's a combination of stress and fatigue. His best remedy is a glass or two of wine, which apparently relaxes the muscles and LOTS of sleep.

Re: Twitching eyelid
me, three. and I have definitely noticed that it's stress related, no doubt.

so, wine. what if you don't drink? we need physicians to help us out in introducing some non alcoholic relaxants. mm, non wine...wine.

Valerian. It's an herb, though some folks are resistant to it. It relaxes me, and I've been trying to feed it to snidegrrl for weeks...Hmmmmm...

Re: Book Club
Wow! I just picked that up from the floor of a friend's passanger seat and read a few pages. Small world. Seemed like an interesting read!

I read it the weekend I was in NYC. It was engrossing to me. I recommend it not that you have time to read!

Hey, my eyelid used to twitch. Hasn't done it in a really long time and I wouldn't have thought of it if you hadn't mentioned it. Don't worry!

It's kind of weird... I haven't been worrying, but once this twitchy thing showed up and wouldn't go away, I have been thinking maybe I've been stressed without knowing it. Is that even possible?

Sure. You're being psychosomatic. Instead of feeling the stress psychologically you've transferred it to your body. You should still try to deal with the stress.

How do you deal with the stress though, when you didn't know you were? Or what might be causing it? Usually when I feel stress I am like "HERE it is! This thing made me stressed!" But lately I have been pretty much fine. *shrug* I mean apart from hating the world, but I mean that whole "what is wrong with crazy people these days" thing is not something that usually leaves me twitching.

That is ENTIRELY possible. I almost never drink water. I know this is bad.

who names an application or a database or whatever wild thing?

Perhaps it is message line spam. "Enla'rge y0ur \/\/i1d Thing! N0 Pi11s!"

my right eyelid has been twitching intermittently
I went through this for over a year in my mid 20's, drove me crazy. I'd love to tell you its something funny, like a lack of sex, or sleep, or even too much carbs. But its probably just stress, caused by a number of things.

Really hope it ends soon for you.

Scweppes Tonic water. Has enough quinine in it to stop the twitching. Also very good for cramps (See the other days comments about getting old)

Re: Twitch
Bitter lemon drink! Good stuff.

Quinine is the traditional malaria preventer. It's also supposed to be one of the most bitter non-toxic substances known to man.

Twitching Eyelid
I came across this website searching for a solution to the twitching eye. I have had this for about 6-8 months. The twitching happens several times an hour. My husband is a pilot and asked me to pickup some Vitamin A for him. He said Vitamin A is good to take right before flying, especially night flying. It sharpens the vision. So, last night I decided to take a couple of Vitamin A tablets. It is now 10:54 AM EST and I have not had a twitching eye since last night. I don't know if this is a solution, but I am going to keep on taking Vitamin A and see if that helps. Twitching eyelid has been going on 24/7 and it is wonderful today to not have my eyelid twitching. So, maybe this might also help someone else.

Re: Twitching Eyelid
Thank you whoever you are! It has since gone away for me, but if it happens again I will try this solution!

Re: Twitching Eyelid
This just started happening to me, and I have been contemplating whether I should call the doc or not. I have NEVER had this happen....so it's a bit scary.
