Twitchy eye help needed before I stick a hot poker into it.

Not really, it's doing my head in though. blush It's been like this for a week after going to the dentist (well, that's when I noticed it, it could be longer), I can see the bottom lid twitching away and it's pulling my cheek up slightly so my mouth looks a little wonky. I don't drink a lot of caffeine and have been resting and rubbing it but it makes no difference. sad What else can I do? Doctor Google isn't showing anything useful.

Thank you thanks

sad How long did it take to stop? Sorry that your eye is still dry, do you have to use drops?

I get it occasionally. It's usually caused by stress, tiredness or both. It will go away, but I know how exceptionally irritating it is!

Thank you smile I'll pop and find an optician. I didn't think I was tired or run down.

It's very annoying.

GP suggested blinking fast could help, hope it does for you.

A couple of months ago I noticed my upper eyelid twitching when getting my hair done. Couldn't feel it so no idea how long it had been like that but stayed for over a week until I took an antihistamine. I'd read somewhere that sometimes allergies can be a cause so tried an antihistamine as a last resort. I' don't suffer from allergies normally but this worked a treat for me.

The bloody thing hasn't stopped, I'll try an antihistamine. Thank you smile
