Do your hands shake on using them or at rest? Continual eye twitching can be from eyestrain or caffeine intake. Itching,soreness & swelling of hands may be an allergic reaction but can you point to any nocturnal triggers? I'm concerned enough about your symptoms to recommend that you see your MD or a neurologist for evaluation. In the meantime you could take an antihistamine like Benadryl at nig
