    Default eye twitching

    Has anyone had any problems with their eyelids twitching? What is up with that and how do you make it stop. It is driving me crazy! Probably not lupus related, just curious.

    Yes!

    When I'm tired or stressed it jumps like crazy for a day or two. Very annoying.

    My eyelids twitch and I sear that my eyeballs jump up and down. Happens, as SITC stated, when I'm very tired, under stress, or in a flare-up!

    Yep,

    Add me to the list. I have the same problem. Sometimes it's the eyelid itself, sometimes the eye. I've been dealing with optic neuritis as well, but I don't believe that it causes the strange and irritating muscle spasms. Just one more odd symptom to add to the list I guess.

    I've heard that eye twitching could be caused by several different things...such as your eyes being fatigued (from watching too much tv, looking at a computer too long or lighting in the room). It also seems that increased stress or plain ole fatigue can cause that annoying twitching.

    Yep, eyelid gets muscle twitches, irritating as can be. I get optic neuritis related to MS too. Eyes look left to right super fasy and all is blurry. No fun. Pain behind the eye, I assume it's inflammation of the optic nerve. Don' know if the muscle in the eye problem affects the optic nerve and muscles that actually point the eyes.

    Guess Im not the only one out there with eye twitches. Its such a strange feeling because you can't control it from happening. It just happens. It usually happens to me when I'm exhausted or if I didnt get enough sleep. It almost feels like a pulse in my eyelid. You can actually see it twitching if you look in the mirror. So odd...

    Default Magnesium

    I used to get eyelid twitches all the time. Turned out I was very deficient in magnesium. I also had jumping leg syndrome and terrible monthly cramps. All were caused by lack of magnesium.
