twitching eyes when closed

Posted by prashantnayal123 @prashantnayal123, Sep 27, 2017

When i close my eyes my both eyes starts twiching otherwise they are normal no problem I ask my mbbs practicing friend he said it is due magnesium deficiency.

Hi Prashantnayal,
Mayo Clinic’s website lists a variety of causes of eye or eyelid twitching.

Did this start suddenly and recently? Are you stressed or particularly fatigued lately?

Thank u for replying actually i will tell u in brief we are only 4 members in our family and we love each other sooo much and we are very poor so having each other love is the only good thing i have seen in my life.
Last year my father died in an very bad accident and that was the biggest trauma of my life.
And this eye twiching started when i saw my father at the ventilator and i came home i tried to sleep but i started to feel that something is wrong then i found out that my eyelids are twiching when i close them

I’m so sorry to hear about the loss of your father. This must be hard for you and the rest of your family. I suspect it will take some time to replace the image of your father in ICU and on a ventilator with fonder images of your father in happier times. Dealing with the after affects of intensive care actually has a name: post-intensive care syndrome (PICS). It can affect either the patient or family members or both.

PICS can be helped with support. I encourage you to join the conversation and use Connect as your support group to help manage the stress since your father’s passing. It is free.

I agree that this sounds like blepharospasm. This can be due to stress and eye fatigue. (over using a computer for example). Warm compresses to eyelids and gentle massage of eyelids and relaxation can help this to finally go away.
