Benign: Most "muscle twitches" involving eyelid are secondary to myokymia, which is a benign flickering, usually associated with eyestrain, fatigue, stress, bright sunshine, etc. But blepharospam may explain your twitch, and, if painful, or increasingly uncomfortable, have your eye specialist evaluate, and treat as appropriate. ...Read more

Ive had nausea, heartburn, headaches in my left temple area, for about a week now. I've also been on my period since 10/1/14 what could it be?

Bleeding: So you have a constellation of symptoms that really need to be looked at. Bleeding for that long needs to be investigated, you may be anemic at this point (low blood counts). This alone can cause headaches. Could be pelvic inflammatory disease, a bad infection in the pelvic area, which could cause nausea/heartburn. Again, I would see a doctor, as this needs to be addressed. Good luck! ...Read more
