Left eye twitching medical explanation

The truth is that the eyes twitch not because they announce bad luck or good news, but the muscles in that place have small spasms with common causes such as lack of sleep, stress, general or eye fatigue, anxiety, excess caffeine, drugs or alcohol.

When our eye twitches, we usually associate this with a good or a bad event that is going to happen to us – the right eye brings good deeds, while the left does not.

These are just superstitions, most often these eye spasms (also called myokymia) occur due to stress or fatigue.

Eyelid twitching is quite common, with each person experiencing it at least several times in their life.

The muscles around the eyes contract spontaneously, involuntarily, but the movements are easy and last a few seconds or minutes.

Causes of eye spasms

The most common causes are the lack of magnesium and calcium in the diet, which can affect all the muscles, not only the ones around the eyebrows and eyes (this is why your legs can twitch sometimes).

The recommendation is to increase the intake of foods rich in these nutrients (whole grains, sunflower seeds, pumpkin, sesame, green leafy plants).

Also, a common cause of eye spasms is the excessive consumption of dark chocolate, coffee, alcohol, tea and other energy drinks, so it is good to limit the consumption of these foods.

There are also diseases that can lead to the formation of eyelid spasms: colds, flu, sinusitis, anaemia, diabetes, but these cases are rare.

Of course, lack of rest or stress also has a role in the occurrence of reactions of the eyelid muscles.

Local causes are eye irritation, allergies, foreign eye contact or dry eye syndrome.

Thus, in order to find out the exact cause of why your eyelid is struggling, it is good to go to the doctor!

In extremely rare cases, these eyelid twitching may indicate a symptom associated with neurological disorders (such as blepharospasm, manifested by abnormal blinking and inability to open the eyelids).

The contraction is so strong that the complete closure of the eyelid can give small erosions and irritations on the cornea (the anterior, transparent tissue of the eyeball).

If these eyelid tremors do not go away on their own within a week or if other symptoms occur (photophobia, eye pain, blurred and blurred vision), you should consult an ophthalmologist to rule out other diagnoses.

Treatment

In addition to eliminating the above incriminating factors, in severe cases, an injection of botulinum toxin (botox) may be recommended to stop these spasms.

Also for severe cases, there are interventions for the surgical resolution of some areas of muscles or innervation.

Don’t forget the first measures to reduce eye spasms – give up coffee/chocolate and sleep more!

Sometimes, warm compresses around the eyes also help to relax the muscles.

Working on the computer is a stress in itself, so don’t forget to take breaks at intervals of 20-30 minutes, for a few seconds to look at a long distance (4-5 meters) and blink voluntarily.

This practice helps prevent dry eye syndrome and its consequences.

If the appearance of spasms is based on dry eye syndrome, it is recommended to administer artificial tears, drop by drop, according to the recommendations of the ophthalmologist.

A minor eye spasm is often associated with lifestyle factors: fatigue, stress, sleep deprivation, alcohol consumption, tobacco or caffeine consumption.

The “superstitions” of our body

Over time, people have noticed a certain connection between the “signs” that our body sometimes gives us: itching, wheezing, numbness, and certain facts, events, that take place.

People have correlated them and all this has given rise to superstitions about the different anatomical parts of our body. 

For example, if your head itches you, it is said that your condition undergoes a transformation for the better, that your social position undergoes an improvement.

It is said that if you have a rebellious strand of hair left in your hair, you will go a long way. 

If your ear inches you, it is a sure sign of rain (this is one of the superstitions that can be scientifically explained; the cilia in the ear get wet from the moisture in nature and this favours the tickling that we take as itching).

 If your ears suddenly turn red and become hot, it is a sign that someone is talking about you… and not good things!

If your nose itches, you will most definitely argue with someone. If your right eyebrow itches you – you will see an old friend; if your left eyebrow itches you – you’re on the right path in life.

If you rub your eyes, it means that you will soon see someone dear. If your right cheek itches you, someone wants you; your left cheek itches you – someone doesn’t want to hurt you. If your lips itch you – you will soon kiss someone. 

If your left palm itches you, you will lose money; if your right hand itches you – you will gain money.
