    Random eyelid twitching

    I've been having it for a while... I decided to google it, mainly because I'm bored, and one of the causes is exessive caffine intake.

    My caffine intake isn't exessive... 5 cups of coffee in 3 hours in nothing.

    The mussel in my arm sometimes "spasms" after a few large half-pint mugs of coffee. Other times, my leg just shakes continually, not to mention the chest tightness. :P

    Then the down side is the theory that coffee is like lubrication for your insides!

    Holy explanation, Batman!

    Vision: Seeing flashes.

    I have that... I always wondered what that was.

    Do you mean that your eyelid twitches so much that people can see it? Or that it's a feeling of the eyelid muscle spasming?

    I've had the spasming for some time....and my coffee intake in NIL!!!!

    :scarednow: !!!!

    It's eye strain, I've got it this morning from not getting enough sleep and my office having very bright lights/white desks.

    Rest your eyes and use eye drops to clear it along with a good nights sleep.

    the muscle twitch/tic in the eyelid can be caused by stress, tiredness, caffeine, etc. i used to have one for ages, and i wasn't getting enough sleep and getting quite stressed at work.

    **edit**
    yeah what he said above.......

    It's the bottom eyelid of my right eye.

    I can feel it, and no-one has said anything, but I can kind of see it twitching at the bottom of my vision.

    If I put my finger on it, I can feel it. So it's definately happening.


    I may see what happens if I leave the coffee for a while.


    Also, tea has caffine. So do a few other things.

    A good nights sleep for me is around 12 hours... Hence why I drink so much coffee.

    Yep...sounds just like me!

    Right eye, bottom lid....Scary!!!

    Tea has almost as much caffeine in as coffee, apparently, so that may be the cause of mine....for your 5 cups of coffee....read 5 cups of tea!!!

    Pound for pound Tea has more caffine than coffee.


    But there's more caffine in a cup of coffee than there is in a cup of tea.[/SoSaysStephenFry]

    Wiki Rooibos

    Yeah it also has health benefits with high levels of antioxidants take a gander at the wiki above.

    Edit:

    I read this while skimming the wiki page
    Rooibos is purported to assist with nervous tension, allergies and digestive problems.

    Hmm... I get a twitchy eye-lid sometimes... I'm convinced it's stress related.

    Cutting down on caffeine did nothing for me... but taking a holiday did!

    I'm laughing at the fact my twitchy eye has gotten more replies than a work-related request for help/advice.


    @pantscat I would love a holiday... not long left until the summer break.
