Frequent headaches for a 2 years and new onset eye twitching. Could it be caused by a brain tumour?

Unlikely: Brain tumors can and often cause headaches but 2 years is too long to blame a brain tumor for. Eye twitching has nothing to do with a brain tumor as it is normal for muscles to twitch off and on if they are tired or over worked.
If you have progression of these symptoms, then you should get a medical examination done from your doctor. ...Read more

I recently had a seizure...I have been having severe headaches, left eye twitching. Also like a cloudiness in my head. Also tenderness in some parts o?

See an MD: Are you diagnosed with seizure disorder? It's normal to feel groggy and 'out of it' for a while after a seizure, but severe headaches don't necessarily go with seizures and would need to be worked up by an md. See an md, because some seizure disorders are life-threatening if not controlled. A neurologist would be best suited for this. ...Read more

A Twitch in Time: Blepharospasm is the term used for eye-twitching that can be a manifestation of an underlying peripheral nerve condition or central nervous system process. Acute trauma around the eye can also result in delayed spasm during nerve healing. In many cases anxiety can also cause this secondary to both acute and chronic stress. If stable, consider it only a nuisance. If changing seek an exam. ...Read more

Face pain/spasms, dizzy, neck pain, after doing chin ups and chest dips? Sometimes I get eyelid twitching too. What causes this? How do I fix it?

Face pain/spasms, dizzy, neck pain, after doing chin ups and chest dips? Sometimes I get eyelid twitching too. What causes this? How do I fix it?

Get checked: Clearly, not a normal response after doing chin ups. I would check your teeth, your cranial joints (TM joints, occiput and frontal sinus at sphenoid junction) for presence of toxins, pathoges or allergens. Dizziness is suggestive that your ears may be involved. Muscle spasm and eyelid twitching suggest neuromuscular involvement, so rule out Lyme disease. ...Read more
