    These things are annoying as hell. This past year my left eyebrow has been twitching once in a while and it's starting to drive me crazy. A few weeks ago my upper right lip started doing it but stopped. Yet, my left eyebrow still twitches.
    Anybody have these twitches and what causes them?

    My left eyebrow twitches when I get annoyed. I've always been pretty good at hiding my anger when I get pissed off or frustrated, but lately my eyebrow goes off on it's own.

    What is Lupus anyway?
    Anyhow, it happens even when I'm in a good mood, or neutral. So I don't think it's anything to do with feelings. Just wondering.
    I think it might be lacking vitamins or something.

    Don't joke about Lupus, my has it. It's not a fun disease.

    Anyways, my right eyebrow twitches when I'm really stressed, you under any stress?

    If you want to know more on Lupus, then read this site: Lupus Foundation of America

    EDIT: Also note, it's extremely rare that a male contracts Lupus. I'm still being checked out by my doctor, there is a chance that my mom may have passed it on to me through her genes.

    Twitching is a problem with the brain obviously, so I wouldnt take any chances since its not seeming to be an issue with your emotions, I would recommend a doctor's opinion.

    But seriously, see a doctor if it bothers you that much.

    Any of you ever heard about Tourette's Syndrome? It is not fun. That's what I have, and it causes me to twitch horribly.

    That's a major cause, but it would seem you don't have it. Spasms perhaps?

    I don't think it's spasms either. It just happens once in a while. You know, like twice a week sort of thing. It's just annoying when it does happen cause it seems to last for a few minutes.
    I am pretty healthy person, so who knows. I think I'm not getting enough vitamins.

    I do that sometimes too part of my cheek or my eyebrow twitch a little but I don't worry about it because I always figure it was nerves.

    (am I right? I don't need any more problems, I already got way to many....)

    Sometimes I get these random, painful muscle spasms on the top-left side of my head that last about ten seconds, and good God they make me wince and my left eye gets all watery. This happens mainly in school, in Chemistry class especially last year. Not too fun when you're presenting your science fair project in front of the class :banghead: 

    Sometimes my lower lip will awkwardly twitch and then I sneeze for some reason too. Happens only when it's very warm/hot outside or in a room.

    My eyelid will twitch involuntarily from time to time, it'sfrom a lack of sleep/rest though. My thighs also twitch sometimes when I'm sitting down, but I'm not sure why. I had a twitch in my foot that was nonstop for like 3 days. It went away, but I don't know why that happened either.

    I've had twitches in my thight too. Run a lot or heavy exercising? That's probably the cause.
