Hi McNicol,
Thanks for writing your query.
The symptoms described by you points towards concussion. Healing from concussion injury takes few days to weeks depending upon the severity of injury. Healing can be made fast by proper rest which includes avoiding watching television or working on computer or text messaging, until full recovery.
If your symptoms persists or you are experiencing some new symptoms you should get yourself examined by a Neurophysician and get a scan of your head done. Taking proper rest will be helpful.
I hope this is helpful to you.

Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

Your symptoms may be suggestive of a mild post-concussional syndrome. Twitching of one eye occasionally is a non-specific symptom and is very common even in normal people. So, you don't have to worry much about your symptoms, as they will gradually resolve on their own. It can be due to fatigue, stress, muscle strain, salt imbalance, etc.

I would suggest the following:
- Avoid working continuous hours in front of the computer
- Take adequate rest and get at least 7-8 hours sleep a day
- Drink plenty of water
- Include more of fruits and vegetables in your diet
- Avoid strenouos physical work
- Try relaxation exercises like deep breathing
- Avoid smoking and alcohol

Best wishes,
Dr. Sheeba Stephen
