I've developed a really annoying constant eye twitch- what could cause it?

Don't know why, but my left eye is constantly twitching (little muscle? spasms of the lower eyelid that are noticeable when looking in the mirror.)

Anyone know what could be the cause? It is SO irritating!! It has been pretty much constant today and yesterday.

I used to have one of those - caused by stress.

You're tired

Agree it's caused by fatigue and/or stress

my sister had this after the first time she plucked her eyebrows. She was convinced she had pulled out something important! think it's just tiredness though

stress/fatigue. There were threads about this a long time ago. I'm too tired to find them ;)

Thanks. I am not particularly stressed. I am 6 weeks pregnant with #3. I have been going to bed at 8:00PM for the last three nights as my kids are waking at 6:00AM and do not feel tired either.... Is there anything else it could be?

... oh and I found the other thread on this, thanks. It is my left eye that is twitching so apparently that is good luck..... eh? I'll go and check last night's lottery numbers and let you know if I won the biggie......

I get this intermittently. Was v bad when I had Glandular fever so I guess it's caused by being run down.

I also had this a few months ago. It did seem worse when I was tired, but you say you are not tired.... Mine went away of its own accord in the end. Congratulations on pg BTW.
