Hello,

Thanks for the query
I understand your concern


Your problem could be related to stress/anxiety. But I will like to know if your eyes twitches in one or both sides.

Best wishes

Hello,

Thanks for the feed back

I feel that your problem could be related to tension/anxiety without any serious neurological problem. A physical examination by a neurologist will rule out a remote treatable neurological condition called as blepharospasm.

Hope this clarifies
Please get back to me in case you have any other concern/questions in this issues
