    Hey guys, lately my right eye keeps twitching, and it's pretty frequent. I don't know if it's anything I should be really concerned with but it's really distracting and kinda exausting.

    I did some look up on the internetz and found that it could be fatigue related. I admit I've been fouling on my sleep schedule lately, so that could be the obvious "cure", but I'm more worried if the twitching is going to damaging at all.

    Hey! That's an idea, maybe I'll replace it with like a.... uhm.... I don't want to go with a cyborg eye, thats cliche.

    I think I'll replace it with a foot. What if the foot was to start twitching though, that would hardcore suck.

    Could be Wilson's Disease. Get an MRI. And get some bloodwork done. Get yourself started on 50 Mg of dihydrogen monoxide.

    Some people get it from hitting the bong too much, or from staring at your computer too long.

    Sounds like it's just Blepharospasm, where you're eye involuntary twitches, would'nt worry about it.

    These can also cause it-
    Corneal irritation or injury
    Stress
    Lack of sleep
    Fatigue
    Prolonged staring or eye strain
    Neurological disorders
    Possibly Hereditary

    Happens to me every once in a while.

    A good night's sleep usually does the trick, for me.

    It's infect and will swell up to the point that it'll explode.

    I'd follow Dr Fresh's diagnosis and get it amputated.

    Could be parkinsons. I would rip it off now before it affects other parts of your body.

    That's why I go for fourteen hours of sleep per day minimum. Anyone who has shared a room with me at Botcon can attest to this.

    I got twitches for a while, but all that I needed was to correct my nutrition level, which sucked. How's yours?

    But on the other hand, a friend of mine got eye twitches and it turned out to be MS.

    Wouldn't hurt to talk to your doctor about it.

    It's normally a sign that your French subordinate keeps inadvertantly threatening your life.

    I have something similar if I don't get enough sleep, though I have a seizure disorder and lack of sleep fucks me up.
    Just to be safe have it checked out.
