    I've got that right now!

    Apparently people are more prone to twitches when they're tired (I've got a cold at the moment too). I'd guess it's something else that's not really that well understood though.

    I had this years ago but it was under the eye toward in the inner part. It could be a magnesium deficiency. I took magnesium and taurine injections and it went away.

    That would be my guess too - low magnesium.

    I think it might be due to a skewed glutamate/GABA balance. So yeah, magnesium would be first on my list.

    You may want to try finding the nerve or one's nearby that are causing or contributing to this and press lightly with your thumb to get this to stop. Hold it for a few minutes. This always gives me immediate relief and sometimes lasts for hours. Heat packs over the eyes can help sometimes too ... tc ... x

    BTW. I get this when I use caffeine too many days in a row for energy.
