My Eyes Twitching
Depends: Eyelid "twitching" is a common complaint and is generally benign. Eyelid myokeimia is a unilateral (one sided) condition that causes fasciculations (muscle fiber twitching) in the orbicularis oculi muscles within the eyelids. This is generally related to stress, sleep deprivation and caffeine intake, all of which may alter the body's sympathetic tone and cause fasciculations. Bilateral eyelid twitching is called “benign essential blepharospasm”. The most worrisome condition is facial hemispasm which causes unilateral, painful spasm of the side of the face with associated forced eyelid closure (blepharospasm). This is secondary to a compressive lesion such as a mass or arteriovenous malformation which impinges on the facial nerve (cranial nerve 7) as it exits its foramen in the skull to innervate the side of the face and orbicularis muscles. This must be promptly investigated and decompressed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
