My eyelids twitch when eyes are closed, bad balance with rombergs tests, get pins and needles in arms/legs easy. Neurological issue?

My eyelids twitch when eyes are closed, bad balance with rombergs tests, get pins and needles in arms/legs easy. Neurological issue?

Some comments: First, regarding eyelids, this could be benign myokymia, and not due to underlying disease. The romberg test may be a result of vitamin deficiency, inflammatory disorder, or even inner ear issue, and altho abnormal, nonspecific. Fluctuating pins and needles may be due to nerve compression. Best approach here is to get full neurological exam, and get a diagnosis which considers these issues. ...Read more

Blurred vision in one eye, headaches, muscle twitches, dark/yellow circles around eyes. Cat scan of brain & blood work normal. Sound serious?

See an eye doc: Even though cat scan normal, you should still be seen by an ophthalmologist given your symptoms especially if they are progressive.

Swolen eyelid edges, itchy inner corners, eye pain, twichy lids, light sensitivity, hi ocular presure but nothing else found by opthamlogist.Whats cause?

Blepharitis: All the symptoms except high eye pressure are caused by blepharitis, inflammation of the eyelid. Your body's natural oil builds up on the edge of your eyelid around the lashes. Normal bacteria eat the built up oil and then secrete a toxin which irritates the eyes and eyelids. Removal of the oil through a special cleaning technique helps. Sometimes antibiotics and flax seed oil are necessary. ...Read more
