Re: Eyelid twitching

I was on this site trying to learn more about the modified Atkins diet when I saw this.  I couldn't believe others were talking about this. 

My eyelids do this when I've come into contact with any gluten.  I've been on a gfcf diet for 2 and 1/2 years now and this is one symptom that will stay with me for weeks after being exposed to gluten. 

I was diagnosed with CFS/ME/FM back in 1990 because I had ataxia, myoclonus, severe fatigue and constant upper respiratory infections, but it appears  that most if not all of my problems were really from gluten ....

My ataxia and myoclonus both went away approximately one year after going on this diet.   

If you google gluten, you'll find tons of info on how gluten affects our bodies and how to execute the gf diet.  

Hope this helps someone. Marcia

Re: Eyelid twitching

Hi, I am also on Topamax and have experienced eye twitching.  I went to the doctor about it last September and began taking B12 injections (I now take a B12 nasal spray instead) and it has gotten rid of the twitching for me.

Re: Eyelid twitching

I had eye twitching when I took Keppra, but now I'm on just Lamictal and I don't have it.  My upper lip would twitch too, but it wasn't a frequent as all the people in the previous comments have had. I also would have it when I was late taking my meds or near my menstral. I want to think it's a side affect, but I'm not sure. I had bad terets when I was on tegretol and got off of it for that reason and wonder if that is what it was.

Re: Eyelid twitching

my eye lids would twitch on topamax but it stopped once I was off it now I have mouth twitching lol on keppra so I wonder if it my myoclonic activity or the meds effect different nerves or different part of the brain . The mouth twitches bother me less thou than the eye lid twitches as the eye ones bothered my vision sometimes .

Re: Eyelid twitching

I have had epilepsy for 32 years now,, I will be 35 soon!!!! I have had all kinds of them... I still get them 2 nothing really helps thats for sure!!! 1 reason i say this,, is these doctors dont know what it is really like to have 1 but they try to say this and that!!!!! I have had my eye twitch lots of times,, it has not happened in awhile,, I believe for some reason it seems like it happens more when i am really tired,, Because i have never had it happen when i was sleep good!!!! 

Re: Eyelid twitching

had the problem, neuro said it was more than likely some form of seizure.  could not complete rule out the meds, but did not think so.  he recommended that i take a daily vitiam.  i thought he was nuts, but tried it anyway.  i was shocked, it worked, after about two weeks it was gone.  some of the vitamins take time to get to the proper level.  if you are not taking them you may want to give it a try.  the other thing he mentioned and then kinda blew off himself was that it could be part of a long  post ictal period.  hope it helps.  rikk

Lasik laser

Before surgery I couldn’t see anything clearly without glasses. Even worse, all outdoor activities were a strain.
Needless to say I couldn’t score many points playing basketball. At work I wasn’t able to use a computer for more
than an hour before I started getting head aches. This not only affected my performance but also my attitude. Now that I’ve had the surgery I finally have a full field of vision during every waking hour. Being able to walk
outside with no glasses or contacts and seeing everything is amazing. I highly recommend a Lasik laser surgery.

Re: Eyelid twitching

In fact most of the neurology-related disorders are closely connected to the side effects of modern medications especially the Atypical Antipsychotics that carry the side effects of Extrapyramidal Symptoms (EPS), Tardive Dyskinesia (TD) etc that would potentially and eventually disturb the normally functioning of the dopamine receptors (one of the main neurotransmitters in our nervous system) resulting in bodily chemical imbalances that in turn trigger off a variety of involuntary and purposeless movement disorders that are substantially beyond control of the ones suffering from them. Included below are the weblinks on medical information about such neurology-related disorders.

Re: Eyelid twitching

As for as the suggested alternative instrument-aided self-adminstered method of acupuncture method mentioned in my earlier posts as concerned (please refer to the prior posts above), it would actually and finally be effective on the intended persons with such problems whenever a blunt-pointed object such as a normal writing pen that is out-of-ink (that would serve as a leverage to produced a force that is adequately focused enough to generate the necessary 'reflexology stimulus' for the problematic facial nerves, especially the twitching eyelids) is pressed using just mild force onto the surface of the specified "He Gu" acupuncture point. And I can assure you that many people to whom I have recommended this method in my real life have gained tremendous curative benefits from this suggested method that eventually and fully cure that abnormally rapid non-stop eyelid twitching in the end once and for all. In fact, based on the acupuncturist attending to my eyelid twitching sickness, that acupuncture method actually serves to purge the dopamine-disturbing Risperdal toxin that cause all the non-stop eyelid-twitchings out of my nervous system and the nerves around my eyes enabling me to get totally cured in the end.

Besides, since I myself is not an acupuncturist, I really wonder if the same acupuncture mechanism that is to be applied onto other related acupuncture points would be applicable and work in the same way just like what I have explained in my articles in regard of my Risperdal-induced abnormally rapid non-stop twitching eyelids for the other parts of the human body such as arms, legs etc that are having the similar movement and neuromuscular disorders due to dopamine-disturbing side effects of certain modern medications too (by purging the dopamine-disturbing toxins out of the related nerves around the other related problematic body parts and the nervous system, please refer to the web reference included in my posts for those other acupuncture points). After all, there is just my personal opinion about the acupuncture mechanism based on my very own personal views and definitely a great deal of professional advices, consultancies, inquiries and confirmations would need to be obtained from the licensed acupuncturists who are in the actual and proper position to give clarifications and other related explanations to such views and suggestions .Next, please try to understand and take note that other acupuncture points may be located on the other parts of the human body that are either extremely vulnerable (such as near the eyes, ears, neck, head etc) or hardly reachable (such as the back, shoulder etc).

Next, this suggested therapy is actually a simple-to-practice and definitely free-of-charge one, and that is why I am greatly inspired to share my experience with others over the net so that they will eventually get such eyelid twitching sickness finally cured like me and the others too. Besides, for the ones who are having such a sickness, especially in such countries like India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and certain countries in the middle east for which there are a greater number of people troubled by such eye-related problem whilst such acupuncture treatment and related physicians are hardly available in these areas, I believe that my articles that account for my healing experience and the suggested self-administered acupuncture therapy will be much more invaluable and useful to them especially in terms of strengthening their eye nerves against a variey of eye diseases.

In addition, "HE GU" acupuncture point is located on both of the hands of a person. And for my case, my abnormally rapid non-stop eyelid twitching is caused by dopamine-disturbing side effects of Risperdal.

I don't know about the cause of your eyelid twitchings, but if one were to apply that acupuncture method on the "HE GU" acupuncture point of both of the hands, the healing effect would definitely at least double. So, why not give it a try (I have tried that before as a matter of fact.) And I can tell you that my eye condition now is even better than the one before I get such Tardive Dyskinesia-induced abnormally rapid eyelid twitching in the sense that my eyelids never twitch abnormally anymore ever since I get fully cured through that suggested alternative acupuncture therapy and my eyes rarely get overstrained even after I get to work lots of overtime for my work commitments that involve lots of paperworks and workings in front of a deskstop.

Lastly, I wish you a speedy and complete recovery for your eyelid-twitching sickness. Thank you.

Have a nice day.

Re: Eyelid twitching

As for my abnormally rapid non-stop eyelid twitching sickness that I have developed  due to the very reason of the Tardive Dyskinesia / Extrapyramidal Symptoms / dopmaine-disturbing side effects of Risperdal . I have some comments for the Botox injection therapy.

For your information, I have tried a few Botox injections before from a neurosurgeon in the course of seeking numerous and repeated but futile and disappointing treatments from a variety of related medical specialists to get my sickness cured. Next, I have found out from the neurosurgeon that such toxin-based Botox injections would just serve to sort of 'half-paralyse' the eyelid muscles to reduce such twitchings without being able to do anything curative to the problematic nerves around the non-stop twitching eye muscles that cause such a problem. Besides, each Botox injection would work for just 3-6 months and after that one would very probably need to get another injection one after another indefinitely in regard of such a treatment to continue to get the similar muscle-paralysing healing effect. Nevertheless, in regard of the Botox injections applied onto the facial muscles, one would very likely develop such undesired side effects like paralysed facial muscles, droopy eyelids (in some cases) etc when one gets such Botox injections over the long-term after quite a number of years.

Lastly, you can refer to the Follow-up that accounts for my healing experience from my abnormally-rapid eyelid twitching sickness due to the reason mentioned above. Thank you.

Formal Therapies From Western Medication For Tardive Dyskinesia

Formal Therapies From Western Medication For Tardive Dyskinesia-induced Non-stop Eyelid Twitching - My Views Based On My Experiences, Research & Observations so far

In the case of prolonged neuromuscular eyelid twitchings, since it is the dopamine-disturbing substances / other 'contaminating agents' that disturb the eyes nerves and cause all the unwanted twitchings, spasms, tics etc, getting rid of them from the eyes nerves /related nerves around the particular organ having the twitchings would then naturally, reasonably, logically and obviously be the most clear-cut, direct and straightforward way of curing such a neurological / neuromuscular sickness.

Unfortunately, in terms of the formal mainstream western medical science (in contrast to such alternative therapies as acupuncture etc), the particular technology of administering direct and effective treatments onto the peripheral nerves around a particular area of muscles having certain neurological movements / neuromuscular disorders (in order to cure them effectively) simply has not yet been found/invented/developed/discovered by the modern medical science of the formal western medication.

Next, even such sophisticated medication as Botox injections could only deal with such neuromuscular disorders merely through indirect means of 'interception' by 'half-paralysing' the areas of muscles having the twitchigs (even in the case where the muscles themselves do not have any problems / simply are not the root cause of such twitchings) without being able to deal with the problematic nerves causing all those unwanted twitchings to those muscles. And that's the reason why the recipients of Botox injections would need to get such treatments over and over again when the muscle-paralysing effects of such medications lapse totally (after 3-6 months).

Therefore, such an argument actually suggests the main reason why a person troubled with chronic prolonged eye twitching problems would hardly get their problems effectively solved by using such formal therapies as eye drops, vitamin / mineral pills, anti-muscle-spasms injections, medications etc as they simply do not or rather cannot deal directly and effectively with the underlying problematic nerves around the twitching eyes /other muscles & organs that cause all those unwanted twitchings. This is due to the underlying fact that the 'right technology' for the treatment of such neuromuscular disorders simply doesn't exist in the present day western medical science (which covers the those treatments mentioned above). I may appear to sound a little arrogant to you by making that remark, nevertheless, that's simply the truth.

In this regard, I was caught in such a predicament / difficult situation too during the initial period when I firstly sought repeated but futile treatments from such formal medical personnel and specialists of the western medication to deal with my Tardive Dyskinesia-induced non-stop eyelid twitching before I finally got it totally cured once and for all through the acupuncture treatment which serve to deal with the root cause of the non-stop eyelid-twitching problem by purging / driving out the dopamine-disturbing substances / other contaminating agents that cause all the non-stop twitchings gradually and eventually out of my body enabling me to get healed in the end.

A New Version For The Self-administered Acupuncture Cure

A New Version For The Self-administered Acupuncture Cure For Non-stop Persistent Eyelid-twitching

Thanks for taking an interest in my posts made in this website. At the same time, I also have received lots of positive feedbacks from my email inbox from other persons (troubled by such annoying non-stop eyelid twitching sickness) giving thanks to me for the curative benefits they experience upon exercising the suggested alternative instrument-aided self-administered acupuncture method.

In response to the additional enquiries about the suggested self-administered acupuncture method that these persons have made to me so far through the emails, I thus would like to provide to the intended readers a new version about this acupuncture therapy which contains other extra and more in-depth details as follows : -

Well, regarding the 'He Gu' acupuncture point (as shown in the diagram below) I have mentioned in my prior articles for the suggested cure for non-stop eyelid-twitching, its exact location is at the back of the palm of one's right hand, which is 1.5 cm (applicable to the average grown adults only) measured vertically from the point of intersection (that would appear visibly when the fingers are closed loosely together) between the thumb and the forefinger. (Kindly take note that this point is located at a much 'fleshy' instead of a much 'boney' area - perhaps you would need to briefly explore that part of your right hand at the same time to locate that point, and I hope you will understand that the hand structures of each person differ from one another).

When the acupuncture point is identified and marked accordingly, you can then re-open your hand , and then what you all can do is to sit down, and at the same time press that onto the surface of that acupuncture point (using just mild force) with any long blunt-pointed object such as toothpick, a normal writing pen (which is out of ink of course) etc against your chin (suggested for convenience purpose) for a continuous 2 hours (during any time in a day), and it's preferably to do that when you are about to go to sleep at night (so that you have more free time to do it). However , if you are eager to find out the very exact location of that particular acupuncture point to further verify the information given above, I would suggest you to seek consultancy from a licensed acupuncturist.

In this regard, based on the acupuncturist, the blunt-pointed objects such as normal writing pen (which is out-of-ink of course) etc instructed to me for such self-administred therapy is actually intended as a substitute for the acupuncture needle to deal effectively with the particular acupuncture point.

Unlike the other traditional method of acupressure which involves the use of fingers to press and massage the acupuncture points, the use of blunt-pointed object in such a case for the treatment of chronic eyelid-twtiching is actually meant as a 'leverage' to provide an adequately focused and hence a 'reflexology stimulus' that is strong enough to deal more precisely and effectively with that acupuncture point.

Whereas, if that acupuncture point is to be treated with fingers, the stimulus effect generated would be very much smaller due to the fact that such pressings and massagings would reasonably not last long enough to provide any reliefs for the chronic eyelid-twitching. Besides, given the larger suface area of the fingers as well as their rounded physical shape (compared to the blunt-pointed objects), a large part of the forces produced from such pressings and massagings would then be reasonably applied onto the related muscles rather than directly onto the intended nerves through the related acupuncture point to deal effectively with such sickness.

Please be reminded that a good sleep at night throughout the therapy period is essential for the healing to be effectively done. And a person shouldn't associate oneself again with the underlying causes such as over-straining of the eyes, excessive cafeine intake, allergy/overdosage of certain medication (with muscle spasms side effects) that causes this non-stop eyelid-twitching to the particular person in the first place to avoid a relapse of that sickness, especially after getting cured from it.

Please take note that one should continually apply that method in the case where it proves to be effective in dealing with the eyelid twitching problem (after trying it for about 3 days' time).

For your reference, I get my eyelid twitching stopped the next day after the acupuncture treatment. But when I stop the treatment for the next few days, the twitchings just come back again. Based on the acupuncturist, the explanation for the relapse is such that if one were to apply just one-off / short-term treatment, it would then only serve to disperse the dopamine-disturbing toxin / other 'contaminating agents' around one's eye nerves enabling the twitching to stop just temporarily (without totally purging such toxins / 'contaminating agents' out of the human body). So, it works just like doing a physiotherapy whereby one should complete the whole course of treatment (in this case, applying that self-administered technique persistently for weeks / a few months) to get the eyelid-twitching sickness totally cured effectively once and for all in the end.

Next, the suggested duration of two-hour period/day (continuous non-stop healing process) for that self-administered treatment is just what I have recommended so far to other persons having the similar symptoms based on my very own healing experience from this eyelid-twitching sickness and the others who suffer from it (who eventually get it totally cured). All in all, it would acutally depend on one's healing progress for the eyelid twitching sickness upon applying that suggested self-administered acupuncture method.

Acupuncture Point : LI4 • He Gu • Large Intestine 4

How Do I Know That I'm Pressing On The Right Point ?

How does one know that one is applying pressure exactly at the right acupuncture point ? (Please Refer To The Prior Post Above Added With a Diagram)

The information as follows is added accordingly in response to further additional feedbacks and enquiries made ever-increasingly by the ones troubled with chronic non-stop rapid eyelid-twitching / eye-blinking problems (especially the medication-induced ones) seeking helps from me through the emails.

About the question of how would one know that he / she is applying the blunt-pointed instrument-aided pressure at the right point (the "He Gu" acupuncture point - please refer to the diagram added in the related prior post above), well, the nerves of our bodies especially the ones closely adjacent to each other, would tend to interwind, overlap and interconnect among one another. Whilst the 1.5 cm and its location on the wrist as portrayed in the diagram mentioned above for the 'He Gu' acupuncture point is actually a standard measure for the size of the hands of the average grown adults.

Next, applying blunt-pointed instrument-aided pressings upon it (or any points around that 'He Gu' acupuncture point area) will actually generate direct stimulations to the other nerves surrounding that pressed point around the wrist area as well, and subsequently, produce a reflexology stimulus / 'qi' that will flow / travel right up to the 'final destinations'( Acupuncture Point : LI4 • He Gu • Large Intestine 4 ), which are the peripheral nerves attached to the muscles of the entire face, especially the eyelids to generate the desired healing effects to the intended areas by gradually restoring their bodily chemical balances. In my case and the others, that acupuncture technique actually serves to gradually and eventually drive out the risperdal toxins / other related contaminating substances that disrupt the normal functioning of the dopamine neurotransmitters chemicals of the neurons / nerve cells around our eyelid muscles and cause all those rapid unwanted eyelid-twitching / eye-blinking, totally out of our bodies and enable us to get totally cured once and for all in the end.

Lastly, I hope that the information given above will be useful to the intended readers. Thank you.

Additional Information From Q & A sessions about Blepharosp

Additional Information From Q & A sessions about Blepharospasm / Hemifacial Spasms

Included below are some Q & A sessions between me and another person seeking helps from me for the chronic Blepharospasm and Hemifacial Spasm disorders of her mother living in India. And I hope that the extra information included in the Q & A webpage below will turn out to be useful to you. Thank you.

Original Questions - First Session :

Dear sir,
I'm residing in india->tamil nadu->madurai city.

My mother has been suffering HFS for around 9 years.she has the twitching in the right eye and the right corner of her mouth also twitches along and the right side has turned dark.

She has been taking medicines for all these years.Now she has used Botox injections for five times within a span of 3 months interval. Relief lasts for only 75 days period and again she needs botox.

Surgical methods are not 100% guaranteed and some websites say the patients lose hearing or eyesight.

Then i tried some acupunture treatments and my mom feels better now.so i surfed the web that can there be a cure by acupuncture and found your website and its information were helpful. now i have some hope in recovering my mom.

Now i would like to clarify certain doubts :

1.Is the backside of the right hand palm the only point to treat or any other points to include.if any please mention it with or without a diagram.

2.How many days of acupuncture treatment needed.

3.Where in the world can i have the best acupuncture treatment.if in india it would be more easier for frequent visits.

4.Is there any diet restrictions that can control the twitching.

5.Can there be 100% cure by acupunture method.

6.Is there any home remedies to control twitching.

The answers to the questions will give us a right move towards the cure.

Thank You.

My Reply :

Well, first of all, when you have mentioned, HFS, I belive that you are actually referring to Hemifacial Spasms.

For your information, what you have described to me are also the most of the things that I have gone through before 5 years back when I was having the medication / Tardive Dyskinesia-induced Hemifacial Spasm - especially the eyelid-twitching / eye-blinking for countless times in a split second when it got worst (and at the same time, my mouth was badly twisted apart from having the twitchings). Besides, among the numerous others who have sought helps from me to deal with their similar eye-related disorders, well, most of the Hemifacial Spasms disorders are actually caused by the neurological and neuromuscular side effects of certain medications.

Well, I have tried Botox as temporary reliefs (3- 6 months' period each) for each therapy session) for my chronic rapid non-stop eyelid-twitching / eye-blinking. However, it's actually not a conclusive solution to the related disorders.

Whilst at the same time, I would also like to inform you and the others that the Botox medications are actually composed mainly of Botulinum toxin which are actually medical derivatives from Clostridium botulinum bacterium (which causes botulism) that have been intentionally abused before for the purpose of chemical warfare owing to its intense toxicity.

In respect of your inquiries, I would gladly like to give you the following details for your further references and clarifications :

Excerpt From The Original Question :

1) Is the backside of the right hand palm the only point to treat or any other points to include.if any please mention it with or without a diagram ?

My Answer :

As to this question, please refer to the diagram below :

Besides, there are also other acupuncture points that are related as well as cures for such eye-related problems. However, most of them are actually situated at the vulnerable parts around one's eyes. And hence, my opinion is that those acupuncture points wouldn't not be that suitable for the purpose of self-administered treatments.

Apart from that, as far as Hemifacial Spasms disorder is concern (which affects the mouths and other parts of one's face etc), by applying blunt-pointed-object-mild-pressings onto that "He Gu" acupuncture point, which is located on the wrist of one's hands (both left and right), it would actually generate a reflexology stimulus around one's entire face (rather than the eyes alone). As such, I believe that it is thus a safe and practical acupuncture point for Hemifacial Spasm disorders, especially the chronic uncontrollable non-stop eyelid-twitching / eye-blinking. And in particular, for self-administered treatments.

Excerpt From The Original Question :

2) How many days of acupuncture treatment needed ?

My Answer :

Well, that would depend on how serious is the Hemifacial Spasm disorders of your mother, especially the rapid eyelid-twitching / eye-blinking problems, as well as how long she has suffered from it right from the very beginning. As such, please refer to the detailed descriptions of the self-administered needleless free-of-charge acupuncture / technique / cure for non-stop persistent rapid eyelid-twitching / eye-blinking as included below : -

http://www.curezone.com/forums/fm.asp?i=1233341#i

Honestly speaking, I obtained tremendous reliefs on the very next day after the acupuncture treatment (my abnormal eyelid-twitchings / eye-blinkings stopped completely). Whilst for the far less serious cases (non-Tardive Dyskinesia cases), most of them would just experience the effects within hours after applying that acupuncture technique. Whilst for the really and extremely serious ones, (the ones who have been suffering really chronically from such disorders for many years, eg. nine years - please refer to the original question above) , it would usually take 5 - 10 days for them to obtain the desired reliefs from that acupuncture technique in the very first place, and then, one would need to continue applying that acupuncture technique consistently and daily (for weeks / a few months' time) in order to get fully-cured once-and-for-all in the end..

Excerpt From The Original Question :

3) Where in the world can i have the best acupuncture treatment.if in india it would be more easier for frequent visits ?

My Answer :

As a matter of fact, for some reasons my skins are extremely sensitive to the conventional prolonged needle-piercing therapy of acupuncture. And since that therapy is not that suitable for me, the acupuncturist attending to me is kind enough to impart to me a simple needleless acupuncture method (without using needles at all) to enable me to deal with my Hemifacial spasms / rapid eyelid-twitching / eye-blinking problems.

And well, since the acupuncture technique can be praciticed on one's own, it's thus a free-of-charge cure. So, given that I'm a part-time social worker working for the health cares of others, i thus feel that it's a part of my vocations to recommend this self-administered needleless acupuncture technique to the ones who need it.

As such, please refer to the story behind the suggested self-administered acupuncture technique for abnormally rapid eyelid-twitching / eye-blinking described above

http://www.curezone.com/forums/fm.asp?i=1386471#i

Besides, there are in fact many people all around the world seeking helps from me through emails ever since the beginning of 2008 for their chronic eyelid-twitching / eye-blinking problems, especially the medication-induced ones. Frankly speaking, for those areas like the ones in middle-east, and unfortunately India and the countries surrounding it, there are hardly any acupuncture clinics / treatments available (based on what they have told me). And so, I hope that the self-administered acupuncture technique will be helpful to your mother in totally solving her problems once and for all, just like the numerous others who have totally recovered once-and-for-all from such chronic disorders.

Excerpt From The Original Question :

4) Is there any diet restrictions that can control the twitching ?

My Answer :

Well, there are certainly causes that lead to such muscle twitchings. They could be due to the neurological / neuromuscular side effects of certain medications, excessive caffeine intakes, overstraining of the eyes etc. Naturally, it would be in the best interest of the ones suffering from such disorders to make a clean break with the causes leading to such disorders. However, in the case of medication / Tardive Dyskinesia-induced chronic eyelid-twitching / eye-blinking, a switch to the better and more advanced medications with far lesser Tardive Dyskinesia / Hemifacial Spasms side effects would be quite an option (given that one may still need the related medications to deal with the other related disorders, and in my case, I switch from Risperdal to Seroquel after getting completely cured from the Hemifacial Spasm / chronic rapid non-stop eyelid-twitching / eye-blinking disorders).

Excerpt From The Original Question :

5) Can there be 100% cure by acupunture method ?

My Answer :

Actually, in the case of me and the numerous others who get totally cured once-and-for-all for those disorders through the self-administered acupuncture technique, we have taken MRI, CT-Scannings and other related medical examinations before. And these medical examinations actually show nothing abnormal at all.

And in fact, for the medication / Tardive-dyskinesia induced hemifacial spasms / rapid eyelid-twitching / eye-blinking, currently there are no medical examinations that would be able to conclusively and definitely detect and diagnose the interferrences of medications onto the synaptic activities of the neurotransmitter chemicals / neurons that are widely distributed in our miscellaneous bodily nervous systems to the point of muscle spasm / neuromuscular disorders .

So, my comment is that, if your mother's medical scenario actually falls into the category that I have described above, well, then I believe that there is quite a good chance that she will get fully recovered once and for all from her disorders through applying that suggested self-administered, free-of-charge, needlleless acupuncture technique consistently and daily.

Excerpt From The Original Question :

6) Is there any home remedies to control twitching ?

My Answer :

Well, that is actually not to my knowledge.

Whilst the logic behind the self-administered needleless acupuncture cure is such that, well, since the related muscle-twitchings are caused by certain "contaminating agents", such as the undesirable remnants of certain medications that antagonize the normal functionings of the neurotransmitter chemicals (especially dopamine which is responsible for all the human body physical movements), then, getting rid of them from the related nerves around the twitching muscles (eyes / facial muscles) through the acupuncture treatment is thus the most direct and effective way of dealing with such neuromuscular / muscle-twitching disorders and to stop the related muscle twitchings.

Original Questions - Second Session :

First of all i would like to thank you for your answers.I found your problem being more severe than my mom and really glad that you are fully recovered.

The information was very useful.

some of the doubts my dad wants to clarify :

1.As you had twitching a countless times in a split second,its more serious than my mothers case,how many days or months did it take to recover completely.This would help me to calculate the recovering time for my mom.

2.Even after cure are you still continuing the acupuncture treatment these days.

Thank you.

My Reply :

Thanks for the feedbacks.

As such, I hope that my replies as follows will clear your doubts about the questions you have asked.

Excerpt From The Original Question :

1) As you had twitching a countless times in a split second,its more serious than my mothers case,how many days or months did it take to recover completely ?

My Answer :

Well, actually I suffered from such chronic rapid uncontrollable eyelid-twitching / eye-blinking and other Hemifacial Spasms symptoms (from the Tardive Dyskinesia side effects of certain medications) for about more than one year. And eventually when I was instructed with that self-administered needleless acupuncture technique as a cure for all these neurological / neuromuscular disorders, it actually took me about 2 months' time exercising that acupuncture technique consistently and daily (in my case, 2 continuous hours / day) to enable me to get totally cured once-and-for-all in the end.

Remark From The Original Person - Please refer to the Original Question Above :

This would help me to calculate the recovering time for my mom

My Reply :

Honestly speaking, out of so many people seeking helps from me for their similar related disorders of different degrees of severities , well, for the mild and short-term cases (less than 6 months), some of them would totally recover once-and-for-all within weeks. Whilst for the really serious ones, especially those suffering from the like-disorders for many years (eg.nine years as mentioned in the paragraph above), it would certainly take about a few months' time applying that acupuncture technique consistently and daily for a final, complete and once-and-for-all recovery to be achieved in the end.

All in all, that would actually depend on the healing progress of the individual people suffering from such disorders. In this regard, based on my personal experience as well as the feedbacks I have received from the ones seeking helps from me, it's such that once that self-administered needleless acupuncture technique is proven to be effective for them in the very first place, exercising them subsequently and consistently would then just serve the next-steps and the other purposes of reducing the muscle twitchings progressively (in terms of the really serious cases), to just prevent the related muscle-twitchings from coming back after the curative effects have taken place for the very first time (just like what me and some othes have experieced), and then, to get such disorders gradually and totally cured (in a realistic and practical way - please refer to my preceding post above) once and for all in the end.

Excerpt From The Original Question :

2) Even after cure are you still continuing the acupuncture treatment these days ?

My Answer :

For your information, for me and the numerous others who have been suffering from the similar disorders, we would not need to exercise that acupuncture technique anymore once we are totally cured once and for all from them.

As for my case, I no longer need to exercise that acupuncture technique anymore after I have achieved full and once-and-for-all recovery for the disorders ever since 5 years back. And well, the reasoning behind this is that, there is no relapse at all of such disorders at all ever since I get totally cured once and for all, and given that my pair of eyes are just as normal and healthy as and to any other people (I mean for anyone I meet), I simply need not do anything for those disorders / symptoms that have disappeared completely.

Lastly, I would wish a speedy and full recovery for your mother's like-disorders and good luck.

He Gu Acupuncture Point- Left or Right Hand ? Does That Matter ?

Further Details About The Suggested Needle-free Self-administered Free-of-Charge Acupuncture Technique For Chronic Rapid Eyelid-twitching / Eye-blinking : "He Gu" Acupuncture Point - Left or Right Hand ? Does That Matter ?

Well, as far as acupuncture treatment is concerned, the nerves of our bodies especially the ones closely adjacent to each other, would tend to interwind, overlap and interconnect among one another. Whilst the 1.5 cm and its location on the wrist as portrayed in the diagram added in my prior post above for the 'He Gu' acupuncture point is actually a standard measure for the size of the hands of the average grown adults.

Next, applying blunt-pointed instrument-aided pressings upon it (or any points around that 'He Gu' acupuncture point area - please refer to the diagram added below) will actually generate direct stimulations to the other nerves surrounding that pressed point around the wrist area as well, and subsequently, produce a reflexology stimulus / 'qi' that will flow / travel right up to the 'final destinations' (please refer to the medical references weblink added below), which are the peripheral nerves attached to the muscles of the entire face, especially the eyelids to generate the desired healing effects to the intended areas by gradually restoring their bodily chemical balances. In my case and the others, that acupuncture technique actually serves to gradually and eventually drive out the risperdal toxins / other related contaminating substances that disrupt the normal functioning of the dopamine neurotransmitters chemicals of the neurons / nerve cells around our eyelid muscles and cause all those rapid unwanted eyelid-twitching / eye-blinking, totally out of our bodies and enable us to get totally cured once and for all in the end.

Therefore, both the "He Gu" acupuncture points on both left and right hands would basically serve the similar purposes in this case.

In addition,

honestly speaking, applying that acupuncture technique on the "He Gu" acupuncture point of both left and right hands (alternately of course) may double the curative effects. However, the application of the acupuncture technique on the left hand side of the "He Gu" acupuncture point (compared to the recommended right-hand-side) is strongly recommended to be done under 2 circumstances :

1 ) One's Blepharospasm condition is really chronic and has been lasting for a couple of years (such as over a year) - and as such, applying the suggested acupuncture technique on the "He Gu" acupuncture point of both left and right hands (alternately) may naturally be necessary in this case.

2 ) The "He Gu" acupuncture point on the righ hand (which me and the numerous others suffering from the like-illness have been exercising extensively due to its much larger curative effects) has been skin-worn, and hence needs some time for its recovery. So, the left-hand "He Gu" acupuncture point will serve as a replacement in this case.

And again for your information, during the time me and the others are suffering from such Blepharospasm disorder, we apply the acupuncture technique on the right hand of the "He Gu' Acupuncture point most of the time due to its larger curative effects (based on empirical observations).

Brief And Basic Medical Explanations About Blepharospasm / Chronic Rapid Eyelid-twitching / Eye-blinking :

http://silkwise.com/content/viewthread_thread,4243

What is an Eyelid Twitch?

What is an Eyelid Twitch?  ( http://silkwise.com/content/viewthread_thread,4243 )

 

It's actually called Blepharospasm which is a symptom of involuntary and uncontrollable
movements in the muscles around a person's eyes which in turn make them appear like
'blinking non-stop' to other people.

In certain cases, this may be caused by myasthenia (muscular weakness) in the eyes
organ as a result of stresses, overstraining of the eyes, lacks of sleeps, the serious lacks of
certain nutrients / minerals to support the normal functionings / movements of your eyelid
muscles etc.

Next, in the case whereby no stress, any kinds of infections, overstraining of the eyes etc are
involved whilst the eyelids and the entire organs just look superficially normal and ok, and at the
same time, the eyelid-twitching / eye-blinking just get 'unexplainedly' from bad to worse
from time to time, such medical scenarios could actually be caused by other neuromuscular
disorders which are much more complicated.

And in terms of such neuromuscular disorders, they may arise as a neurological / Tardive
Dyskinesia side effect of certain medications, especially the powerful mind-altering
tranquilizers of antipsychotics / neuroleptics, particularly when such medications are
over-relied on to the point of sheer abuse.

In such a connection, please consider the following excerpts : -

"Chlorpromazine side effects

Get emergency medical help if you have any of these signs of an allergic reaction: hives; difficulty
breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat. Stop taking chlorpromazine and call your
doctor at once if you have a serious side effect such as:

twitching or uncontrollable movements of your eyes, lips, tongue, face, arms, or
legs;"

Kindly Support These Charity and Humanitarian Causes / Totally Needle-free Acupuncture / Acupressure Cure For Blepharospasm / Chronic Eyelid Twitching / Eye Blinking

Included below is a totally needle-free, free-of-charge, simple, painless, harmless, self-administered acupuncture / acupressure cure / technique for Blepharospasm / chronic eyelid twitching / eye blinking.

In this regard, I hope that this suggested self-administered, totally needle-free, totally free-of-charge, painless, harmless, simple acupuncture / acupressure technique / method which involves hourly and daily consistent mild and persistent pressings of the "He Gu" acupoint located at the back of one's right palm [which is 1.5 cm (applicable to the average grown adults only) measured vertically from the point of intersection (that would appear visibly when the fingers are closed loosely together) between the thumb and the forefinger], (Kindly take note that this point is located at a much 'fleshy' instead of a much 'boney' area, with any long blunt-pointed objects such as a normal writing pen which is out-of-ink - to produce the necessary acupressure for the healings whilst not to get the particular mildly pressed acupoint dirtily inked (Please refer to the diagram attached below for that "He Gu" acupoint) meant for genuinely effective cure of Blepharospasm / chronic eyelid twitching / eye blinking disorder which in turn have totally cured countless of people troubled by chronic eyelid twitching / eye blinking problems for a number of years on an ongoing basis, especially for the chronic eyelid twitching / eye blinking normally caused by :

# Stress
# Tiredness
# Eyestrain
# Caffeine
# Alcohol
# Dry eyes
# Nutritional imbalances
# Allergies

Next, under such situations and causes of eyelid twitchings / eye blinkings as mentioned above, such annoying symptoms would usually come and go within a very short period of time and certainly the conditions would get better and better from time to time especially when certain related treatments are sought and administered to deal with the symptom.

However, under rare circumstances when the eye twitch symptom just get progressively and chronically and seriously unmitigated from bad to worse as well as seem to last permanently even when all sorts of related treatments are adminstered upon such illness to deal with it, such non-stop eye twitching symptom may then simply just manifest as one of the serious neuromuscular / neurological symptoms of :

# Tardive Dyskinesia (rapid involuntary uncontrollable eye blinking / eye twitching), which in most cases are caused by the neuromuscular / neurological side effects of certain powerful mind-altering medications and other neurological complications. Whilst the underlying mechanism of such a disease is such that the normal functionings of the neurotransmitters chemical dopamine which co-ordinates the miscellaneous human body movements in this case are disturbed, antagonized and disrupted in this case resulting in one's loss of control of human body movements, and in this case, one's eye / eyelids organ.

In such a connection, in terms of the landmark & prominent Tardive Dyskinesia symptom of abnormally rapid eyelid twitching / eye blinking as described and mentioned above, since the eyelids' organ-movements-related neurotransmitters chemicals - dopamine produced by the nerve cells / neurons are totally transparent while the eye nerves / brain cells remain undamaged, the MRI / CT-scannings would thus not be able to show and detect anything abnormal and unusual at all for their Blepharospasm / chronic eye blinking / eyelid twitching disorders, and then almost in all cases, their Blepharospasm / chronic eyelid twithcing / eye blinking disorders would then be labelled "accordingly" as "undiagnosable" / "unexplainable" by the related mainstream medical personnel, and then they are suggested to get surgery / perpetually continual Botox injections to deal with such chronic neuromuscular and visually-incapacitating disorders.

All in all, for the undiagnosed medical phenomenon and scenario described above, well, regardless of how advanced the mainstream medical sciences are nowadays, their are still lots of medical and pathological conditions that remain unexplained and are pending to be deeply examined and explored in the sense that anything that cannot be examined / observed / explained to date simply do not mean that they do not exist at all,

will be relevant and useful to the ones desperately needing an once-and-for-all cure and recovery for their Blepharospasm / chronic eyelid twitching / eye blinking problem and disorder.

Re: Kindly Support These Charity and Humanitarian Causes

Follow-up: Well, There Are Other Fully Unvarnished & Totally veracious Truths about Botox Medications, Blepharospasms & Involuntary Muscle Contractions

As such, please refer to the excerpts below:

.............Whilst in terms of Botox injections for chronic Blepharospasm / rapid involuntary uncontrollable & seriously unmitigated non-stop eyelid twitchings / eye blinkings, that's also a troblesome solution as one would need to take "necessary" and perpetually continual periodical Botox injections of which each injections session would last for 3 - 6 months each, and one would need to take such syringe injections of Botox medications persistently and successively for the rest of one's life to mitigate and deal with one's chronic Blepharospasm disorder.

Besides, the most important point remains that given that the ones suffering from chronic Blepharospasm / rapid, involuntary, uncontrollable, purposeless eyelid twitching / eye blinking disorders who choose to take perpetually periodical syringe injections of Botox medications that are administered continually and periodically to their chronically twitching / blinking eyelids, well, they are actually and continually fed with such 100 % purely poisonous chemical substances from time to time in reality for the rest of their lives.

Next, it is worthy to take note that human bodies would tend to get immune to any medications especially the ones fed to them repeatedly from time to time, including Botox, particularly the ones composed of the identical chemical components as explained above / of the same version, and that's most probably the very reason why at certain times it didn't or fail to work.

In such a connection, Botox medications with different mixtures of chemical components and ingredients are often "invented", launched and promoted from time to time as new and latest cosmetic enhancement and medical-treatment products with one of the largely unknown purposes of overcoming such a problem of immunity.

Nevertheless, since such medications are all 100 % poisonous substances themselves, naturally no one would be able to tell or predict the consequences and the risks needed to be incurred, largely unknowingly, especially by the regular users of Botox medications of different brands and versions which are composed of different mix of chemical substances & ingredients over the long term.

And as such, this category of persons are thus highly and potentially exposed to, taking & running the extremely higher and higher risks from time to time of getting the related unavoidable, and possibly hardly reversible side effects of droopy, ruffled eyelids, other facial distortions etc in the end. which are quoted from :

- Botox and Surgical Solutions For Chronic Blepharospasm ? Are they reasonably really sensible, rational and practical under most of the circumstances ?

And well, since nothing is really 100% fully perfect in this world, which includes mainstream medicines, probably due to their potentially underlying theoretical and methodological inadequacy and limitations, and as such, in certain cases, much more effective cures under certain circumstances may be available from alternative medicines for certain disorders.

In the meantime, given that my related eye conditions are fully ok now ever since numerous years back in the distant past, and thus by making the previous posts above, I just merely wish to share with the intended related others about the great therapeutic & curative benefits that me and the numerous others on an ongoing basis from time to time, have derived & obtained from this particular acupressure cure :

Dear Sis, Madam,

 

I've come across an interesting and informative article recently posted by 'anonymous' through the weblink
http://www.answerbag.com/q_view/387431 (under the main heading :  What makes my eye jump? like constant twitching all day, whats up?) which gives the medical details, causes and suggested cures for this illness. And I think it will somehow be relevant and useful to you and the ones having this sickness for a long time in looking for a way to deal with it effectively. Thank you.

Re: Twitching Eyelids

It is worthy to take note that in terms of the eyelid-twitching sickness, if the cause of it is clearly identifified as being induced to an individual by overdosage of or allergy to certain types of medications, especially the ones that have strong neurological effects and carry the side effects of muscle spasms such as certain drugs that are meant to cure depression, psychotic sicknesses  and other neurological-related complications like epilepsy etc, it is thus necessary to at best stop taking such medications and replace them with something else if possible in order to at least stop such eyelid-twitching problem from getting further worsened as well as to prevent a relapse of such sickness after a person gets cured from it. 

Non-stop Persistent Eyelid-twitching - My Comments

Note : The following article is only meant as a reference material to the intended recipients and advices should be sought from the medical experts to establish the authenticity of its contents.

Eyelid twitching, which is lately referred to as Blepharospasm or Myokymia is actually a symptom of involuntary and uncontrollable movements in the muscles around a person's eyes which in turn make them appear like 'blinking non-stop' to other people.

Generally, the movements of one's muscle is controlled by the nerves around them that in turn receive signals from the brains which ultimately dictate the variety of 'ways' in which such movements are to be conducted based on a person's will.

The causes of such eyelid-twitching symptom in most common cases may just due to short-term stress, over-tiredness, over-straining of one's eyes, occasional anxiety, temporary panic fits and nervousness which in turn can be easily relieved and recover naturally by a good rest, more relaxation and trying to calm oneself down to stop getting anxious, panic and worried and stressful over certain things. In this regard, such phenomena tend to be quite common among certain students and other professionals.

However, in the cases of a persistent uncontrollable twitchings of the eyelids which only get aggravated rather than improved over time and last for months and even years, it may just probably imply that the nerves around the eyes organ are simply not 'properly functionable' enough to bring about the desired movements of the muscles based on the mental instructions from the brains of a person.

Except for any brain and other eye muscle damages/eye muscle disorders caused by permanent lack of certain nutrients and minerals etc or other irritations to that organ like dry eyes, sore eyes, bacteria infections etc, such a chronic eyelid-twitching sickness may likely be caused by certain disturbances and disorders that affect or weaken the functionality of the nerves around the eyes to bring about the desired movements of this organ based on the person's will.

In this regard, the possible reasons of such chronic eyelid-twitching sickness may probably due to the causes as mentioned above which is experienced by a person over a considerably long period of time rather than just temporarily. Apart from that, other likely causes maybe be certain traumas, especially the emotional ones, allergy to or overdosage of certain medications that carry such side effects as muscle spasms, particularly photophobia in the case of eyelid-twitching symptom.

In fact, I myself have also been suffering from such a sickness due to allergy and overdosage to such medications like Risperdal and other similar drugs (of which I have stopped taking and replaced with something else so as not to further worsen the eyelid-twitching problem and to prevent a relapse of that sickness after I get healed). As such, I would very much like to share my own genuine personal experience with you over the course of my treatment of such a sickness and I hope that it will somehow be helpful to a certain extent especially to those who have been having the similar experience as mine and I would to emphasize that it again only is meant as a reference material to anyone reading it.

For your information, I have been suffering from this sickness in the past few years whereby my eyelids also tend to twitch both continuously and uncontrollably without me being able to do anything to control the twitchings at all. As a result, my eyes would seem like blinking all the while to anyone who looks at me and I totally could not drive, look directly and persistently at the pc or tv screens and most of the times, I simply can’t read any books or newspaper properly.

And I have sought lots of medical treatments and advices as well as apply various kinds of eye drops, taking various types of vitamins, mineral pills as well as many types of anti-muscle spasm medications from lots of eye specialists, neurosurgeons and psychiatrists (who explain the medical theories mentioned above to me), ENT specialists and other general practitioners, and even have the MRI examinations taken to get my eyes cured , but these efforts turn out to be in vain as they fail to yield any positive results and my eyes still keep on blinking non-stop.

Luckily, just about a year after I suffer from such a sickness, I come across an acupuncture expert who studied and observed closely about my problems and then administer a therapy needle on the part of the flesh at the back of the palm which is about 1.5 cm vertically from the point of intersection between my thumb and my forefinger of my right hand (as per attachment in http://www.answerbag.com/q_view/387431 ) to strengthen the weakened and sensitive nerves around my eyes. After that, he just ask me to press (using just mild force) that acupuncture point using such objects like toothpick /normal writing pen or anything with a blunt-pointed end for at least 2 hours a day and then consistently for about 2 months. Having done that persistently based on his order, my eyelid-twitching that makes my eyes blinking all the while just totally recover in time and I can drive, work with the pc screens, watch tv, movies and read as well as work like any other normal persons.

For your further information, I have also come across quite a couple of people in my real life annoyed by such an eyelid-twitching problem of different causes and degrees of severity, and accordingly, I just recommend the method as mentioned above to them and within weeks, they just experience significant improvements to their conditions after applying this therapy, and after a few months , they just recover totally from this sickness. . And I hope that by contributing this piece of article to you, it will somehow help you to in at least getting a clue about this sickness. Lastly, I sincerely wish that the ones troubled by such an annoying eyelid-twitching sickness can recover finally from their illness. Thank you.

And having taken this medication for about one year based on his prescribed dosage, my eyelids started to twitch, quite unnoticeable by me at first, but when more and more people began to ask me the reason why I kept on blinking my eyes to anyone who looked at me, I just started to sense this particular eyelid-twitching symptom but without being aware of its underlying causes at all.

It was only when my eyelids began to twitch non-stop and violently day after day without me being able to do anything to deal with it, I then just referred this problem to my psychiatric who subsequently told me that he couldn't do anything about it and referred me instead to a the eye doctors, ENT Specialists and neurosurgeons. Having examined my conditions, medical history as well as my diet and the existing medications that I was taking by that time, they all unanimously arrived at the diagnosis that the eyelid-twitching was definitely and undoubtedly caused by the prolonged intake of Risperdal which actually carried such side effects of muscle spasms especially the ones inflicted on the upper part of the face of a person who took it for a certain period of time.

In fact, by that time, I just accordingly followed the advice of the new psychiatrist and replaced this Risperdal with an alternative medication called Seroquel,which was actually a second-generation drug that didn't cause that much muscle-spasms side effects. However, even after I had quit taking Risperdal for more than 6 months, the violent non-stop twtichings still persisted. And actually before I decided to seek acupuncture treatment (as recommended by my friends) to deal with this sickness, I did accept the suggestion of a neurosurgeon to take Botox injections to deal with the problematic eyelid-muscles that caused all the twitchings. Next, the Botox injections, in fact did give positive results in the first place whereby my eyelids just didn't twitch that violently after being given the injections.

However, upon knowing from the neurosurgeon that Botox injections was actually not an effective cure for this eyelid-twitching sickness, for the very reason that the medications would just serve to sort of 'half-paralyse' the eyelid muscles without being able to do anything curative to the problematic nerves around the twitching eye muscles, coupled with the fact that such Botox medications tend to get immunized by the human body, it thus would just mean that larger and larger dosages of such medications would be required for each subsequent injection therapy (which would last for 3-6 months each) in order to achieve the similar healing effect of the previous ones.

Besides, it was also actually a very expensive therapy as it would cost me about 5,000 dollars for each injection therapy session and hence, to keep on spending such huge sums of money to stop my eyelids from twitching would just be very expensive and unreasonable.

Whilst the neurosurgeon mentioned to me also about a surgical treatment to effectively cure the eyelid-twitching, the operation, apart from being very costly, was also actually a very risky one as its failure may very well bring blindness to the persons being operated. At the same time, even such surgery were to turn out to be successful, it would also be unable to achieve 100% complete healing to anyone being operated in the sense that the eyelid-twitching conditions can never 'look perfectly normal' like the ones who were totally not troubled by such a sickness at all. So, I just eventually gave up the idea of getting a surgery to treat the sickness.

Being terribly desperate, I just came to the decision of referring my eyelid-twitching sickness to an acupuncture expert which was recommended to me previously by my friends. Frankly speaking, at first I didn't actually have any faith or confidence in such a needle-based therapy and I hardly believed that these needles alone would be able to get my eyelid-twiching healed. Next, having received such therapy, my eyelids still twitched violently like before without any improvements.

However, after taking a good sleep at night that particular day after the acupuncture treatment, I just woke up the next day and found that there were lots of dried mucus that stuck around my eyes, and surprisingly, after rubbing away these dried mucus to open up my eyes, my eyelids just don't twitch so violently anymore and immediately I was able to do the simple readings and watch tv as well as work with the PC screen without getting any discomfort. And based on the acupuncturist who dealt with my sickness, that acupuncture point as mentioned in that main article was actually directly interconnected with the bundle of nerves around the eye muslces, and so by administering treatment to it, that will sort of applying some kind of 'reflexology stimulus' to the nerves around the eye-muscles to improve the blood circulation around that area as well as to strengthen these specific nerves and to enable any unwanted metabolism wastes, blockages and toxins accumulated around that eye areas to be effectively purged out of a person's body (through dried mucus around one's eyes) And having applied that therapy on my own as instructed by the acupuncturist, my eyelid-twitching condition just got better and better day after day and within 2 months, the sickness was totally gone whereby my I just appeared to be perfectly normal to anyone who talked to, looked and stared at me until now.

Though the therapy mechanism mentioned above could hardly be scientifially verified and proven by the modern medical science, however, as far as a patient suffering from this sickness is concerned, it is more the very effective cure for such sickness itself rather than all other medical and scientific reasonings that would eventually matter the most to the patients. As such, this is the main reason why I would seek acupuncture treatment as a last resort to deal with my eyelid-twitching sickness.

And being subsequently encouraged by the dozens of successful cases of those other people in my real life who had been troubled persistently by such non-stop eyelid-twitching sickness and who then eventually got effectively and totally healed in time through the acupuncture technique that I recommended to them, I was thus greatly inspired to post such articles about my very own genuine personal experience of getting totally cured from such a sickness to at least give a clue and some guidelines to the ones who are still being troubled by it so that the similar wonderful thing will happen to them too.

eyelid twitching

LB  I was on topomax for 23 months  and I had eye twitching daily which my neurologist thought  was not a big deal, when I went to see an epileptologist he decreased my dose and added Keppra the twitching lessened so I stayed on it for approx. 1 more year then I found a site that spoke about hearing loss with Topomax.  As my ears had felt "clogged" often and on for the past three years I talked to my neuro/epileptologist about it and he took me off of it all together - now I have no more eye twitching and no more "clogged ears"  Seizures are about the same.

Re: eyelid twitching

Such an abnormal eyelid-twitching may just be one of the symptoms of  Tardive Dyskinesia (neuroleptic medication-induced repetitive, involuntary, purposeless facial muscle movements).

Re: Non-stop Persistent Eyelid-twitching - My Comments

Re : Suggested Acupuncture Technique For The Treatment of Eyelid-twitching sickness - Extra Descriptions

Note: The following is only meant as reference materials to the intended readers.

This is meant as a follow-up to give you some additional details about the acupuncture technique I have mentioned to you before. Well, regarding the acupuncture point I have mentioned in my article for the suggested cure for eyelid-twitching, its exact location is at the back of the palm of one's right hand, which is 1.5 cm measured vertically from the point of intersection (that would appear visibly when the fingers are closed loosely  together) between the thumb and the forefinger. (Kindly take note that this point is located at a much 'fleshy' instead of a much 'boney' area - perhaps you would need to briefly explore that part of your right hand at the same time to locate that point, and I hope you will understand that the hand structures of each person differ from one another).

When the acupuncture point is identified and marked accordingly, you can then re-open your hand , and then what you all can do is to sit down, and at the same time press that point  (using just mild force) with any long blunt-pointed object such as toothpick, a normal writing pen (which is out of ink of course) etc against your chin (suggested for convenience purpose) for a continuous 2 hours, and it's preferably to do that  when you are about to go to sleep at night (so that you have more free time to do it). However , if you are eager to find out the very exact location of that particular acupuncture point to further verify  the information given above, I would suggest you to seek consultancy from a licensed acupuncturist.

Please be reminded that a good sleep at night throughout the therapy period is essential for the healing to be effectively done. And a person shouldn't associate oneself  again with the underlying causes such as over-straining of the eyes, excessive cafeine intake, allergy/overdosage of certain medication (with muscle spasms side effects) that causes this eyelid-twitching to the particular person in the first place to avoid a relapse of that sickness, especially after getting cured from it.

Re: Eyelid twitching

i have this happen to me too. my eyelids will twitch for no apparent reason. im on topamax and depakote. i was wondering what it was but cant seem to find out much info on it. let us know if you find anything out.

Re: Eyelid twitching

Eye twitching is normal if you have epilepsy  or seizures disorder. I have the same problem i also have seizure disoder i was dianosed when i was 25 i am 32 years old now for 8 years i been seizing and my eye has been seizing as well . It happends to many people. i was told by my dr is to stay away from caffine if you have to drink a cola or coffee try the caffine free drinks and coffees or lay off the sugar based drinks in your coffee and colas. the caffine in the colas and coffee and any other kind of drinks that are consumed causes the body to over activate the muscles and it situlates it at a higher in crease. I was told a basic diet works nothing with high starches and carbs that also stresses the body out as well.

 also lay off chocolate and coco if nessary it also causes the body to over situlate its self . pleanty of sleep works and try a stress free day . The more stress a epilepic and seizure disorder person faces the more stress the body is impacted and the muscles twitch on their own regardless of taking medication or not. The eye twitches for one reason it is over stimulated and loses mucle control. I was told by my dr and my eye dr that the muscles in the eye lose strength as a person gets older. if you have vison problems wear your glasses more or contacts . If you are still worried about the eye twitching call your dr for a vision screening and take your medication.

Re: Eyelid twitching

Take a look at this website:

http://www.askapatient.com/viewrating.asp?drug=20505&name=TOPAMAX

There are quite a few Topamax users that report eye twitching.  I just started taking Topamax, so far my side effects are mild: soda now tastes flat...can't taste the bubbles, occasional tingling sensation of my face AND twitching of eye.  The twitching has become so annoying, it can be mildly painful and I can see it in my visual field; that the next time I see my MD I'm going to ask for a remedy ... Botox to stop the movements.

BTW, I do not take Topamax for seizure, rather for migraines and am on the lowest doasge 25 mg a day.  I've only experienced one HA since begining treatment 

and I'm not willing to stop the medication at this time.

My healing experience for the eyelid-twitching sickness

Good day, I have read about the stories of many people having troubled by the eye sickness of eyelid-twitchings and hence I would like to share my own personal experience to you over the course of my treatment for this sickness, and it is only meant as a reference material to your website. For your information, I have been suffering from exactly the same type of sickness like these people in the past few years whereby my eyelids also tend to twitch both continuously and uncontrollably without me being able to do anything to control the twitchings at all. As a result, my eyes would seem like blinking all the while to anyone who looks at me and I totally could not drive, look directly and persistently at the pc or tv screens and most of the times, I simply can’t read any books or newspaper properly. And I have sought lots of medical treatments and apply various kinds of eye drops and even have the MRI examinations taken to get my eyes cured , but these efforts turn out to be in vain as they fail to yield any positive results. Luckily, just about a year after I suffer from such a sickness, I come across an accupuncture expert who studied and observed closely about my problems and then administer a therapy needle on the part of the flesh which is about 1.5 cm above the middle part between my thumb and my forefinger of my right hand. After that, he just ask me to press (using just mild force) that accupuncture point using such objects like toothpick /normal writing pen or anything with a blunt-pointed end for at least 2 hours a day and then consistently for about 2 months. Having done that persistently based on his order, my eyelid-twitching that makes my eyes blinking all the time just totally recover and I can drive, work with the pc screens, watch tv, movies and read as well as work like any other normal persons.
For your further information, I have also come across quite a couple of people in my real life annoyed by such an eyelid-twitching problem of different causes and degrees of severity, and accordingly, I just recommend the method as mentioned above to them and within weeks, they just experience significant improvements to their conditions after applying this theraphy, and after a few months , they just recover totally from this sickness. As a matter of fact, I actually intend to put an illustration of that part of the hand (the one between the thumb and the forefinger of the right hand) to demontrate that accupuncture point to you more clearly, but this cannot be done due to limitations of this website. However, shall you have any further enquiries about the method I recommend above, you are welcome to address it to mary_perkins81@yahoo.com and I’ll try my best to help you.
Lastly, I sincerely wish that the ones troubled by such an annoying eyelid-twitching sickness can recover finally from their illness.

Re: Eyelid twitching

I have JME and was experiencing the right eyelid twitching at small intervals throughout the day after i took keppra.  My doc has removed me from keppra and now on topamax.  I have been on topamax for a few weeks and am slowly increasing and as of late the eyelid thing has stopped.  I noticed it more with keppra.  I hope it stops for you.  Good luck.

Re: Re: Eyelid twitching

When I was on Dilantin and Klonopin years ago, I had trouble with my right eye twitching. At the time I was repeatedly told it was a 'tic'. Well, the 'tic' went away when I was switched to Depakote and Tegretol. So it could be a side effect of medication. But I have been researching today to see if I could come across anything regarding epilepsy. This is all I've found so far...see if it helps any. A little over halfway down the page where it is numbered 1-4 gives quick descriptions. Eyelid Myoclonia can happen with or without absences or along with other seizure types. Interesting read, either way. If I come across anything else, I'll post it as well. Take care!

Re: Re: Re: Eyelid twitching

Thanks so much everyone. Things have been CRAZY at my house. My oldest daughter has been in and out of the hospital for heart rate problems, think after 4yrs of this we may finally get an answer!!

The twitching is still happening almost daily. It is actually happening as I type this right now. I see my neuro next week. After reading that link and lots of other reading and my reaction to the flashing lights during my EEG I am really wondering if I do have photo sensitive seizures. Hopefully they have all my info next week and can actually tell me something this time!! LOL

Thanks again everyone!!!
