What Does Eyelid Twitching Mean?

March 19th, 2012 Healthy Living

Have you ever experienced a twitching eyelid? It's a fairly common occurrence in many people and is caused by a number of different things. According to the Mayo Clinic, twitching tends to come and go after a few days, weeks or months, and while it's never painful, it can get pretty annoying. In rare instances, the twitch could be related to a more serious condition, though this is usually accompanied by spasms in other parts of your face as well. But what does it mean?

There are a few different reasons why your eye may be twitching. The three most common causes are fatigue, stress and caffeine, all of which are related to each other. If you feel overworked at your job, your eye may start twitching. However, once the problem clears up, it will likely stop. Other possible causes, according to the National Institutes of Health, are alcohol, smoking and intense physical exertion. Take a step back and ask yourself if you've been drinking too much coffee or sleeping poorly. If something has changed in your life recently, do what you need to set things right and you may notice your twitching disappearing over the course of a few days.

Sometimes, this precedes or accompanies common conditions. If you've been experiencing twitching, you may soon develop conjunctivitis or dry eyes. Blepharitis - or inflamed eyelids - tends to be accompanied by twitching as well.

In rare instances, your twitching could be the sign of something more serious. If the problem persists for more than a week, or if your top eyelid begins to droop, you should visit your physician as soon as possible.
