This is What It Means When Your Eye Starts -Twitching and Jumping..-Serious Health Issue

STAFF 10:34 PM

Lot of people develop eye twitching or jumping at some point in their lives. This common health issue is also known as eyelid tics or eye spasms.

Although these spasms normally affect the lower lid of one eye, the upper eyelid can also start twitching. In general, eye twitching disappears on its own, but it can sometimes last for several weeks or even months.
There isn’t a single cause that can relate to eye spasms, but rather a number of risk factors that have been repeatedly linked to this condition:

-Excess caffeine intake-Bright light-Alcohol consumption-Tiredness-Stress

When the eye spasms are minor, they normally go away on their own. These spasms are neither painful, nor harmful, but they can be quite irritating, especially if they are strong enough to make the eyelids shut completely and then reopen.
However, in other case, eye twitching can indicate a more serious health issue. Some people, eye spasms can appear several times during the day and the symptoms persist for days, weeks, or even months. This can seriously affect your quality of life and cause a lot of emotional distress.
Eye twitching can also be a symptom of a more serious brain or nerve disorder, but this happens rarely.
How to Treat Eyelid Twitches
Although most eyelid twitches require no medical treatment and disappear on their own in a few days or weeks, if they persist, you should address the contributing causes such as stress, fatigue, and caffeine. which means:
-Reduce caffeine intake.
-Get enough sleep.
-Keep your eye surfaces and membranes lubricated; you can use over-the-counter artificial tears or eye drops for this.
-When a spasm begins apply a warm compress to your eyes.
Some lifestyle changes can also reduce the symptoms of benign eye spasms. Coenzyme Q10 is a possible treatment, but discuss it with your doctor first if you have Parkinson’s disease.
