Nystagmus?

Does anyone else have this? I never even heard of it until I was diagnosed. Its a twitching eye. Its like everything you look at is moving back and forth really fast. It sucks.

  • Most people don't get it diagnosed...

    It can be caused by so many different things. My brother can twitch his eyes back and forth really quickly because he's a curious kind of person who figured out how... but calcium deficiency (or too much calcium) can cause muscle tics... as can stress, some neurological disorders, bacterial or viral infections, allergic reactions, other eye irritants, even getting something in your eye...
