Eyelid twitching

My right eyelid has been twitching for days and it is very annoying. What could be causing it? Should I be concerned? How can I make it stop?

  • Try increasing your magnesium intake - eat more almonds, hazelnuts, whole grains, vegetables and dried fruit. Oh, and black chocolate (the higher the percentage of cocoa the better) will help too.
