My eyes have been twitchy for about a week now. It was both eyes now its mainly my right eye. Very annoying. Does anyone else experience this?

Hi Kevin,
I have also experienced this. When my twitches first started 2 1/2 years ago, beneath my right eye began to twitch (which had also happened in the past, when I was tired), but shortly afterward I began twitching in arms, legs, etc. Over the past couple weeks, I have experienced twitching with the same eye, but it is my eyeball, which I agree is very annoying. Some days it happens more often, others just occasionally, but I can't stand the feeling - to feel twitching in the eye is such an odd feeling. I wish I could say I've found something that helps, but so far have not, though I do notice when I go without enough sleep my twitching - not just in the eye, but everywhere - usually gets worse. Hang in there and hopefully it will ease somewhat.

Eye twitches with BFS are very common. Mine started this way about 18 months ago, with my lower left eyelid going nuts for weeks. Recently, my right eyebrow will occasionally have some twitches. My neuro said eyes, lips, and tongues are very common for benign twitches.

Thanks for the replies. It's always nice to have a little reassurance once in awhile. Magiga, stress and lack of sleep definitely affect mine as well.
