Eye twitching could be a symptom of a severe neurological disorder!
The real cause of eye twitching is unknown even to the doctors.
It is often attributed to the stress, tiredness, excessive amount of caffeine, cigarettes and alcohol. Another reason could be allergy or irritation.
Sometimes the eye twitching could be a symptom of a severe neurological disorder, such as blepharospasm (abnormal blink or a spasm of the eyelids) or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). There are more than 2.000 new cases of this problem in the USA every year.
It’s interesting that this condition is most common at women than at men.
Here are the symptoms when you have to see a doctor:
- If your eye completely closes in case of eye twitching
- You feel spasms on the whole face
- You have swellings and very red eyes.
