I've been noticing that my eye has been twitching a lot. It feels like my eyelid is having a spasm. Why could this be?

Hi HealthyA,


Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community.

It's hard to say what could be causing the twitching in your eye.  Are you having any other problems  or symptoms with your eye?  Are you experiencing stress that could be causing your muscle to react?

How long does the twitching last?  How long has this been going on?  Would you classify the twitching as chronic?  Or has it just started to happen?

Here are some additional resources for you to explore:

Make sure to keep note on how long the twitching last and any other oddities so that you can share thorough information with your doctor if it persist.

I hope this helps.

Be well,
