  • You probably need to get more sleep..Mine will do that when I am stressed or am not getting enough sleep.

  • Mine does that sometimes (drives me nuts!!). I looked it up once and it's usually caused by stress, eye strain, caffeine consumption, which I qualify for every day. They can last for weeks at a time. Hope that helps!

  • Whenever I am stressed I have that. If my eye starts twitching I stop and think just what is stressing me more than usual, and just realizing what it is will sometimes stop the twitch. Make sure you are getting enough rest. Maybe try a nice warm bubble bath and put a warm cloth over your eyes.

  • Could be that you are low on calcium and magnesium. Just a thought.
