Blinking Rapidly Helps Eye Twitch But Doesn't Cure It

4 out of 5 stars

My right upper eyelid started twitching many times per day causing me to seek a cure here. I tried bananas, potassium, magnesium, pressure in the area. None of those worked. I remembered that when my ribs were in pain my Chiropractor said the muscles were in spasm from a fall I had that caused a nerve to be pinched. When adjustments to relieve the pinched nerve failed he put electrodes on the area and applied shock treatments to the area to exhaust the muscles so they would be too tired to spasm and would get out of the habit of doing so.

That made me think I needed to exhaust the eye muscles but unwilling to put electrodes and shock in the area of my eye I just practiced blinking the eyelid as rapidly as possible for 30-45 seconds and found that stops it for a few hours so I am not constantly bothered by the twitching.

Hope this helps someone else. I still hope to find something that works totally.

Hi Xanadu,

I occasionally get eye twitching as well. I?ve found that it is when I am usually a little stressed and my diet hasn?t been too good. I find that taking multiple b supplements a few times a day with my meals usually gets rid of it within a day. Usually 50mg works well.

Hope this helps! By the way, that?s in addition to my daily vitamin regimen.

Xanadu, this helped me. I have been doing eye blinking and omg I believe this is finally it. I have tried everything for the last couple of years. I think you have to reset it. Thank you!!!!
