  • My eye used to do that ALL the time. It was when I was with my first boyfriend. He totally stressed me out so bad.He would never shut up, always had somethign to complain about. He would even tear the bed apart after I made it because he said I did it wrong..stuff like that ALL the time. So, my eye began to twitch. And it twitched for 3 of the 5 years we were together. It was noticeably twitching too..people would ask, is there somethign wrong with your eye?
    I left him and within a month, my eye has never twitched again, seriously,lol.
    Its from stress.Nerves.It will do it.
    Find the stress in your life and eliminate it. Your eye is telling you something.

  • Happens to me all the time. When ever I'm stressed out or really, really, mad. My eye twitches like crazy. The first time that it happen I thought that something was wrong. I called my eye doctor and asked a bunch of questions. Stress was my issue.

  • That happened to my husband when he started taking multivitamins. Went away when he stopped taking them.
