Having high BP, slight eyetwitch in lower lid. Matter of concern?

Hello Dr., I woke up Friday morning with a slight eyetwitch in my lower lid. It s barely noticiable, and I thought it would just go away. Well it s been 5 days now, and it s still happening. Concerned, I took my blood pressure and found that it was high. Should I be overly concerned, or can it wait until tomorrow when my doctor is back in the office?

Eyelid twitch or eyelid myokymia is definitely not a serious condition and it defintely does not indicate towards an underlying disease. It is not related to hypertension and it is likely to be co-incidental that the blood pressure was high. You can ignore the eyelid twitches and they disappear over a period of time. The more you notice it or get stressed about it , it worsens. As for the rise in blood pressure , consult your physician .
