Hi Welcome to health care magic,

First of all i wan to clear that, it is just normal physiological muscle twitching., just dont worry for this condition.

In extreme condition take tab clonafit .5 mg at night, for few days.

IT will certainly help u to come out of this condition.

Hi dear
Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

You may be having tics . Since how long are you having this.Tics can happen without any underlying cause or it can denote some other disorder.I advise you to provide more information on when it happens , how your routine day goes on and if you are taking any medications. This would help me give a better advice.

Take care.

My left eyelid does this flutter from time to to through out the day. I do have general stress disorder. My thyroid is fine.
