Crazy Eye

Soo...my eye has now been twitching for 6 days. It kinda freaks me out a bit that is has lasted so long. I looked it up on the internet yesterday and they say not to go see anyone until after the 7th day, so now I wait through sometimes partially blurred vision while my eye has involuntary muscle spasms. I always associated eye twitches with fatigue, stress, or neurological problems (stroke, brain tumor) so it's a little disturbing. I have tried to sleep it off, and I don't really feel stressed so... I am trying to will it away :0). Obviously that isn't working well either. Every time I wake up I think 'oh, it's gone' but to my alarm within a minute or so it's back. Sunday it was about every two minutes at church. By the time we went home my crazy eye was so tired I felt like I had a lazy eye. What's funny is that so many people experience random eye twitching that they have a name for it: blepharospasm. Anyways, I have my painting almost done, my house cleaned up (partially), I found the Christmas and wedding cd's (just have to edit them now), got another calling to enrichment, and I will start my scrapbooking tonight-yea!! I will post Christmas soon-it has taken forever!
Beautiful vision for all my friends!

What a bummer! I've heard it's a lack of vitamins, but I don't know. I hope for your sanity it stops soon!!

Dang that totally stinks. My eye has only ever twitched for a couple of hours and it was SO annoying. I'm sure you feel like going insane after 6 days!!! I really hope it stops soon. How is your life besides the eye twitching? Anything new going on?

oh friend! Stop the twitching! I hope it is ok! We are doing great here, I almost died laughing at the last ISU basketball game! We get there and Dane pulls out his cell phone, leaves Eric a message...."Hey man, just here at the ISU Ball game and it reminded me of you...." LOL! I died, i was like...you are such a girl! But inside I am sooooo glad that he finally has a good enough guy friend that he can do that too!

Hey Liz! My eye twitched for a couple of days once and it drove me insane...but all of a sudden it stopped. It's so weird! Good luck :o)

So here is a not-so-comforting story for you, but the beginning of last year my eye started twitching. It was my right eye - my beautiful little blue eye - and it twitched, and twitched, and like yours was about every few minutes. Luckily my hubby works in an optometry office, so I had him get me an appointment! Do you know what the doctor said??
"YOU NEED TO TAKE A BUBBLE BATH!"
I don't know if you ever read that post on my blog, but it lasted over 10 months. I thought I might have a tumor or something, but they just told me the way it was twitching is stress induced. It was the most awful thing - I feel for you. I am so sorry, and I hope that it goes away ASAP. YUCK. But on a happy note, and I am totally looking forward to seeing your pictures!
