  • I get muscle twitching in my calves a lot. Sometimes also the sides of my feet. Luckily it doesn’t hurt its just annoying especially at bedtime.

  • Mere wife ko 6th mahine mein hua tha ye problem. Aankhon ke paas sir mein bhi dard hua tha. Dhundhla aur kuch hissa mein dikhaayi nahi de raha tha.
    Exercises karvaya to Theek ho gayi.

  • Dr Berg says is could be one of several things. https://youtu.be/QyFZuTnzhSc High Alkaline is one. Low Calcium another. Low Magnesium another.

  • Congrats to you and your family you look absolutely stunning gorgeous what are you having a boy or girl what brand of diapers are going to use love pampers

  • Thank you for making this video. My eyes are twitching from a week and I didn’t know exactly why. So I was eating a lot of healthy food to make it go but that is not helping.. but I have been stressed too. I just brokeup with my toxic friend. We were friends from 10 years. And now all our good and bad memories are haunting me day and night. What a timming!! Wish me luck ✨ Also do you got any advice on how to get over a trauma while pregnant?

  • I started to get a twitch in my left eye after science when my skin was trapped in my watch which I had to twist and turn the watch to get out

  • My Recovery: I had B12 and VitD deficiency. So I started taking B12 shots and VitD+Calcium and after a week the twitching started. But I didn’t know excess calcium and caffeine cause twitching. So after a month I stopped taking VitD+Calcium and switched to tea from Coffee (still continues my B12 shots) and thats it!! This is the third day without eye twitching!! Thanks

  • I have had trichotillomania for 3 years and my eye started twitching today (10.02.18)

    Even though it’s only been one day I can already tell you that, my eye has never twitched like this before, it twitches MANY times for a few seconds throughout the day and night when I am awake. At this stage, it’s only my right eye that twitches, never my left eye.

    The only difference that I can think of that may have caused the twitching is a couple of days ago, I started using tweezers to pull out eyelashes instead of my fingers which is what I have always used. Except I pull my eyelashes out on BOTH eyes.

    I remember when I first got trichotillomania, it started with a tingling feeling in my right eye (the one that is currently twitching but it didn’t twitch when it started, just tingled). My right eye has twitched/pulsed a couple of times in the past but never like this. It’s never my left eye, yet I pull eyelashes out from both eyes.

    My right eye also twitches for a few seconds after I sneeze. I sneezed quite a few times too, maybe from an allergy. I get the occasional allergy like symptoms and sneeze a lot but never the eye twitch.

  • I’m a new to wearing glasses after 1 month of wearing glasses my eyes started paining so I stopped wearing them for 2-3 days without noticing..I didn’t meant to stop wearing them I just forget I had to wear glasses..then my eyes started twitching then I watched this video and realised my glasses were missing

  • Hey guys! at early signs of eye muscle spasms try to close your eye (the one which is twitching) and put your two fingers on it, make sure that your eye is closed and you can feel the warmth of your finger. Do it for approximately a minute after twitching starts and then you will see the difference.

  • I started getting weird eye twitches, feeling sick to my stomach, projectile diarrhea, and fits of extreme anger and depression….
    I finally stopped watching Hillary Clinton speeches, and now I’m fine!
