Eyelid twitch: For most young healthy people, an eyelid may twitch for hours or sometimes days and then go away, and geneally it is nothing to worry about. You may need more rest, less coffee, or an evaluation if it is causing your eye to close or causing pain, but usually these (blepharospasms) just show up and then go away without any clear cause or concerns.
