I am 14 years old and my top eyelid has been twitching/throbbing on and off for about a month now. It is extremely irriatating and, id I look in the mirror, I can see it throb/twitch. I have had this problem before, but now my eyelid is puffed up where it was throbbing/twitching and it feels weird whenever I blink.

Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
Get yourself examined by a Ophthalmologist to rule out any Corneal Injury. Do you have any associated Blurring of Vision of Light Sensitivity? An eyelid twitch is involuntary spasm of the eyelid muscles. It can be due to fatigue, stress or caffeine intake. It usually disappears on its own. Get adequate sleep of 8 hours daily, avoid stress, drink less coffee if you do and You may also want to lubricate your eyes with artificial tear drops.
Good Luck.
