I've had an eye twitch since November!! I get moderate sleep (6-7hrs) and I've pretty much given up caffeine. I do have stress in my life as do most, but this insane eye twitch has got me so worried. It recently just switched to my other eye. Anyone else have something similar??? I've got doctors on Wednesday.

Yes, my left eye started twitching then my right eye started also it did that for like a month straight! It's finally starting to slow down. I was starting to worry also.

I bet it’s stress, and the more you focus on it or think about it the less likely it is to go away. If it’s due to eye strain you might want to take a trip to your local optometrist and get some proper prescription glasses (your Rx May have changed).

I get this too, my right eye twitched for two months, then switched to my left eye, then finally seems to have stopped.

Thanks y'all. I'm glad to know I'm not the only one. It's been driving me crazy! It twitches all day long but the second I try to get a video of it, it stops. I wonder if it goes hand in hand with my anxiety too. ‍♀

It does Erin. Extremely common. I've had it literally for months at a time. I just realized after reading your post that it hasn't happened in a few weeks. Of course, that means it'll start up again now LOL.

Let's hope it doesn't start up again!
