What are possible causes of left eye twitches?


Answer by  Kat76 (475)

There are several causes of eye twitches, but more than likely it is due to severe sleep deprivation. Other explanations include excessive stress and nervous system disorders. The latter is much more severe than sleep deprivation, so an opthomologist would be a good person to discuss the eye twitching with.

I have found that either one of my eyes will twitch when my body is short on vitamin B. A few days of taking some vitamin B complex tablets or capsules will always clear this right up. The same thing can happen when small cracks appear in one or both corners of your mouth.

1. Eye strain caused by staring at a computer too long. 2. Lighting levels lower than ideal for the task at hand.


Answer by  Srfingfreak (697)

Stress is the most likely culprit, make sure to get plenty of sleep and exercise. Long exposure to fluorescent lights or CRT monitors could cause this as well, due to the flickering nature of these light sources. This could also be indicative of a potassium or other neuromusculur transmitter deficiency.

They usually result from fatigue. If it is not fatigue, then it is probably some sort of neurological issue, such as Bell's Palsy or Tourette's Syndrome.
