I have been having upper eyelid twitches in my left eye

For the past month and a half, I ve been having upper eyelid twitches in my left eye. Since last week now, it affects both eyes. Also, I noticed that it usually twitches when my eyes are closed. It is hard for me to fall asleep now because of this. I get adequate sleep and I am not anxious. I did however have an ear infection 3 weeks ago, but the intial eyelid spasms started alittle before the infection. I now have what seems to be a sinus infection of some sort because I have sinus pressure , but again; the initial twitching started before any infections. Lastly, I ve been noticing twitches on my left arm and thigh. I dont know if that is from the newly stress that I m putting myself through because of they eyelid twitching or if it is related. Please advise. Thanks.

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.
You may be experiencing tics.
Tics are many of the times benign and with no underlying disease .At times tics can be associated with muscle disease , psychiatric problems.
I advise you to visit your Physician initially and get examined to come to a conclusion.Treating the underlying condition can easily get you off from the symptoms.You should also think about visiting Psychiatrist .
Hope I answered your question.If you need more information feel free to mail me.

Take care
