Twitchy eye is quite annoying and every person has experienced this at some point of his/her life. It makes you nervous especially when it lasts longer.
But why does this happen? WHY, OH WHY!
Weird spasms and eye twitching are quite common. The bottom lid is usually affected but sometimes the top one is involved as well. It can stop and start over and over again so, the question now is what can we do to stop it?
We are all aware that eye twitching is triggered by something but what is that?
Mayo Clinic defined eye twitching as:
“Eyelid twitching (myokymia) affects only the eyelid. It can involve either the upper or lower lid, but only one eye at a time. The eye twitching can range from being barely noticeable to bothersome. The twitching usually goes away within a short time but may recur over a few hours, days or longer. A lot of general doctors aren’t even sure what exactly is to blame for eye twitching, leading to frustration for those who have tried to seek an explanation.”
- Some claim that it is a consequence of stress or tension.
- Alcohol, excessive caffeine, bright lights, smoking and fatigue may also cause eye twitching.
- Dehydration is also another possibility.
- Staying out all night may be to blame.
- You should drink more water as it can help.
But if it happens often you should visit a doctor.
