Diagnosed with Bells Palsy 6/18/17right side. Noticed twitching over left eye 6/30/17 does it mean I'm getting bilateral palsy. Are twitches normal?

Diagnosed with Bells Palsy 6/18/17right side. Noticed twitching over left eye 6/30/17 does it mean I'm getting bilateral palsy. Are twitches normal?

Not likely: It is highly unlikely that you would develop bilateral Bell's palsy. I assume that you are using refresh pm or some other petroleum based ointment in the right eye several times daily and before bed to protect your cornea. If you do develop it in your left eye, use the ointment there, too and call your doctor.

What could calf/eye/arm muscle twitches(non painful)in a 18yr old girl mean? I just finished treatment for amebiasis. Twitching since week 2 of sick.

Many possibilities: Muscle twitches can be caused by a wide variety of things. More common causes are caffeine, stress and nutrient deficiency. If you were having a lot of diarrhea with your amebiasis, you might have also had some nutrient loss. Persistent muscle twitching can also be a symptom of a more serious problem. I recommend you see your doctor for an evaluation. ...Read more
