Hi Maria I have had this same problem before and my advice is to go see optician who will take a look and if there is a concern then he will refer you to a specialist. Good luck.

I don’t know when this started happening but, I’ve noticed that every time I take a shower, my left eye (lower eyelid) keeps twitching. It almost feels like there is a bug crawling around underneath my eye. I only notice it twitching right after I step out of the shower. It’ll keep going for a long time, some times hours. Or it’ll stop for a while and then happen at random pets of the day. I have had a couple of seizures here recently and I don’t know if that has something to do with it. I don’t drink, and I don’t do any drugs (not even prescription drugs). I can’t tell if this is stress related or something to do with these seizures I’ve been having. My right eye twitches most often, at random parts of the day. But the weird thing about that is I can feel it in my left arm (like a tingling sensation) before it happens. I am only a 21 year old female who takes good care of her self and just wants to know what the issue is. Any advice or comments will help.

My lower left eyelid is twitching and has been for the last week. I also have a short attention span, which is new, and a very short temper, also new. I m also pretty restless and tired which isn t really normal because I get lots of sleep. I also have been experiencing a lack of coordination recently. Basically, I try to type the letter G and I end up pressing the letters F , T , and R . This is not normal at al because I am normally very coordinated, especially when typing. I ve also been pretty jumpy lately and the tiniest things will startle me now.
