Most of us know what eye twitching is about; in fact, we’ve all dealt with it at some point in our lives. Eye twitching occurs quite unexpectedly – you can be watching TV, reading or cooking when you feel a sudden unexpected movement of your eyelid normally. What you feel is a muscle spasm or nerve jump in the area around your eye. Eye twitching is not life-threatening, but it can point to some serious health issues. Also, it can be really irritating.
