When I blink my left eye, the veins in my neck on the left side twitch.  Is this something to worry about?

Blink your left eye?: When most people blink, they blink both eyes at once. "Blinking" one eye at a time is a voluntary act that is usually called a "wink," not a blink. You live in Texas & your English seems good, so I assume you aren't just misusing a word. Your post is confusing. Please repeat it with clarifications. ...Read more

My neck veins bulge a lot when I talk, laugh, lie down, or sometimes stand upright. Is this related to heart palpitations or how my neck veins twitch?

My neck veins bulge a lot when I talk, laugh, lie down, or sometimes stand upright. Is this related to heart palpitations or how my neck veins twitch?

Normal variant: As long as you have normal blood pressure and no prior cardiac history, this is most likely a normal variant. If you are having palpitations, make sure you get that checked, that should be unrelated to prominent neck veins. ...Read more

Left Upper eyelid has been twitching for two months. Can this be caused by pinched nerve in neck (also left side)? I also suffer from TMJ. Help?

Left Upper eyelid has been twitching for two months.  Can this be caused by pinched nerve in neck (also left side)?  I also suffer from TMJ. Help?

Not from the neck: All the movement and feeling in the face is controlled by nerves that come directly from the brain, called cranial nerves. There are 12 pairs of them, and they each do different things. NONE of these nerves pass through the cervical spine. Eyelid twitching, or blepharospasm, can be caused by stress, medication, trauma, or even MS. Dark glasses may help. See a Neurologist, Botox can stop it! ...Read more

Daily twitching eyelid on left side with headache over eye that comes and goes. Sometimes neck pain or pain on back of head as well. Eye is dry as well.

Daily twitching eyelid on left side with headache over eye that comes and goes. Sometimes neck pain or pain on back of head as well. Eye is dry as well.

No simple answer: The most common cause of achy pain around the eye that I see, comes from irritation of some nerves in the upper neck near the base of the skull. When they are irritated, there may be a tender spot to pressure over them in the neck but the body may be most aware of the pain felt around and behind the eye — called referred pain. For this particular cause, tratment must be delivered to the neck. ...Read more

Mild pain on side of neck, head, eye twitching, its on and off and feel it in my shoulder. My other muscles were randomly twitching to. I have hypothyroid.

Best to see doctor: The upper cervical nerves form the stellate ganglion which can go rostrad to the head for innervation. The lower ones do control the neck and shoulder muscles. It is difficult to just say that the problem is that. It is best to have it evaluated especially in view of the eye twitching. ...Read more

Oftentimes they are due to stress or can be induced by exercise.
I would recommend some massaging and warm compresses, Otherwise it's not anything dangerous. ...Read more

You may have a: Pinched nerve in the neck. The weakness is concerning and requires a work up. See a Neurologist or start with your family doc. The twitching goes along with weakness when the nerves to a muscle are compromised(fasciculations). This requires prompt attention and could be from a herniated disc in the neck or another process that has compromised the nerves. Good luck ...Read more

Varicose veins: It is not unusual to have small, dilated and visible veins in the back of the throat. The red bumps are probably small lymph follicles. I would not be overly concerned, but something like this requires a good exam just to be certain. See an ENT. ...Read more
