Posted:a muscle in my lower eye lid started twitching about 5 days ago, and it has twitched non-stop since then. I don't know what to do and it is about to drive me crazy. does anybody know what might help? It affects my vision, especialy on the job, where I need to do delicate tasks requiring visual prescision. I don't want to have to go to a doctor, but it looks like I might have to. Has anybody else experiencced this? If so, what helped? Getting super drunk? Muscle relaxers? A trip to Tahiti? HELP!!!

Posted:Could be a stress related tick or a caught nerve.

You could try relaxing. However if something like this lasts too long (and 5 days is way too long!) then go to a doctor, or in this case maybe an optician.

or you might have "alienitis poppin outus" in which case your head is going to explode it about two days. that'll be eighty dollars, thank you.

Posted:yeah, if why ur twitching be due to what drome n redeye are on about, then the annoyance will go away in a few days. If it lasts after 2 weeks, then seek Mike's advice immediately. When my eyes did that for that long, I was fairly certain it was due to a recent and huge dose of illegal happiness. If you hadn't had a significant increase in the consumption of said happiness, then either you have a surfacing predisposition to pilltwitch or 'other.' if it's 'other', again, see your mikeginny.
hope you get better, man!

Posted:Ok, well, thanks for the comments so far, It is good to know that somebody else has experienced this (and recovered). unfortunatly, I have not done any methamphtamines, so the problem does not lie there....I was about to freak out at work today. unfortunatly I have to make an appointment in advanced to see my doctor (HMO) BS. I tryed gettting realy drunk...I am right now but it is still twitching. I am going to pray....and hope that it will go away when I go to sleep tonight. It is beating like 10 times per second, that is fast!!! It is about to get to the point to where if I had acsess to a fat bowl I would burn one, simply on the slim chance that it would help, I'm about ready to try anything...

the thing that scares me is when I get to thinking about nerological disorders...?!?!?!?

at least I can still do poi and fire staff, it doesn't affect that!

Posted:dude, more info about that time me eyes twitched for the longest time... it wasn't very pronounced, but i *was* a tic. I was told at the time that it was also a result of 'overtiredness' but my life is always in motion! i think also that that twitch while being the product of a massive dosing, was also done during the course of several days, so perhaps it was due to me staying awake for 3 days that contributed. did you stay up too long? I know that it's end of assessent for all the students out there, so perhaps it is due to something as temporary
touch wood, hey?

Posted:thanks guys, my eye stoped twitching finaly. I got super drunk, took some antiinflamatory pain pills from the doc (it was still twitching at this point), and then some stuff from the other local witch doctor ....and it went right away. I am so happy to not be going crazy.

Posted:Accupuncture may indeed be the way to go.

Yes, you can go to a doctor, but I can already tell you what he's going to say. First, he won't refer you to a neurolgist because he'll be too damned stubborn and won't want to bother a neurologist with such a trivial complaint (wiping sarcasm off screen).

He'll either tell you to live with it or give you some powerful muscle relaxants that will knock you six lampshades next to the eleventeenth distortion.

And he'll tell you not to use any recreational drugs and he'll tell you that accupuncture is a waste of time (never mind that it's been working for the Chinese for a couple thousand years...oops I spilled more sarcasm!).

At least that's what most of the doctors I know would do to a young and otherwise healthy patient coming to them with such a complaint. So unless you know a really cool doctor, I'd say try accupuncture first.

But let's remember, I am not yet a doctor...not even close, so I am not responsible if I'm wrong...especially since I haven't examined you. No fair sueing me.

Posted:well, I should have listened, but I went to the doctor, sorry nothing they would or could do, no drugs either. "that will be ten bucks please".... So I found an ancient herbal remedy that worked, I have been using it as neccisary, and Eye twitch goes away withing 10 minutes. and it has been working. The doctor said "reduce my stress level" How do you do that doc, living is stressfull? anyways, I am doing better now that I know what I can use to treat it.

Posted:there is a technique called palming where you take the lower palm area furthest from your thumb, right above your wrist, and press it into the cavity of your skull where your eyes are. by maintaining a tight seal around your sockets and pulling away your hands slightly, you can gently pull on your whole eyeballs and release tension in all the muscles surrounding the eye. it increases bloodflow and feels REEEEEEEAAAAAAL good when you're carrying tension there.

Posted:Firetramp, do you take a multi vitamin? A good one, preferably in capsule form, designed for nursing women? You could just be a bit low in b-vitamins, and under stress. Nursing takes a lot of nutrients out of your body for the baby! Eat well, and think about asking your doc about appropriate supplementation if it continues...

Aromatherapy/herb wise, people find a relaxing poultice held over the eye, warm, with lavender and chamomile, is sometimes soothing.

Feel better!
