    mhalt posted:
    I just wanted to know if it's normal for your eye to keep twitching without stopping?My left eyelid has been doing this nonstop for 2 days and only quits when i sleep.Then,when i wake up starts back again.It is driving me crazy.I have had my eyes do this before,but never for this long,so is there something wrong?
