    Left Eye twitch for 2 weeks
    mariaisabel075 posted:
    Twitching in my left eye has happened before, but not like this. It's been two weeks now and my eye has been twitching continuously with several brakes in between twitches. The lid feels heavy and tense. Not too long ago though my left nose started to twitch along with my eye, but has stopped. Anyone have a good idea as to what's going on?
    Alan M Kozarsky, MD responded:
    Eye twitching is common, annoying, almost never represents any major issue, and goes away by itself.

    That being said, we tell people to reduce stress and sleep more but I'm not sure anything other than the passage of time makes this better.
