Twitching of eyes and mouth. Is there a medication to reduce this?

Hi I have been having eye and mouth twitching for about two weeks now. It has got worse I. The last two days. I went for a body massage and my massage therapist said my muscles were very tight. I felt so much better after leaving there but the twitching happened again. Is there any medication I can take for the weekend to reduce the twitching? I am planning on seeing the dr. Next week Thanks Tania

Thanks for posting your query.

Minor eyelid twitches require no treatment as they usually resolve spontaneously.

Most often, the eye twitches because of three common reasons. These are stress, fatigue or intake of caffeine. The condition usually lasts for a couple of days and then is gone. It is helpful during this time to try to get a good amount of rest, try to minimize stress and avoid caffeinated beverages. This can all help make the eye stop twitching more quickly.

Reducing stress, using warm soaks, or correction of any refractive error may help.

Wishing you good health
