Tingling in left eye
I am experiencing a tingling kind of thing on my left eye. (Like when we touch our nerve, we feel the Beats, just like that) Something like that I am feeling on my left eye. the eyelids move little bit when it happens. I don't know whether it is "aankh fadakna" as we say in Hindi. But it is happening from 4-5 days. So.. What could be the problem?

Hello there.  I can understand your concern.  Yes, it could be "Aankh fadakna". Its called twitching of the eye lid. You should get proper sleep. Because the most important reason for it is not having proper sleep. You can get it checked out by a ophthalmologist in person for further evaluation and management. Best regards. Dr. Anil kumar jain. Bangalore.

An eyelid twitch, or myokymia, is a repetitive, involuntary spasm of the eyelid muscles. A twitch usually occurs in the upper lid, but it can occur in both the upper and lower lids. Episodes of eyelid twitching are unpredictable. The twitch may occur off and on for several days. Then, you may not experience any twitching for weeks or even months. In rare cases, eyelid spasms may be an early warning sign of a chronic movement disorder, especially if the spasms are accompanied by other facial twitches or uncontrollable movements. Eyelid spasms may occur without any identifiable cause. Since they’re rarely a sign of a serious problem. Eyelid twitches may be caused or made worse by: - Eye irritation - Eyelid strain - Fatigue - Lack of sleep - Physical exertion - Medication side effects - Stress - Use of alcohol, tobacco, or caffeine - Blepharitis, or inflammation of the eyelid - Conjunctivitis, or pinkeye - Dry eyes - Environmental irritants, such as wind, bright lights, sun, or air pollution Eyelid twitches are rarely serious enough to require emergency medical treatment. However, chronic eyelid spasms may be a symptom of a more serious brain or nervous system disorder. The following steps may help: - Drink less caffeine. - Get adequate sleep. - Keep your eye surfaces lubricated with over-the-counter artificial tears or eye drops. - Apply a warm compress to your eyes when a spasm begin If the problems persist or worsen visit the opthalmologist at the earliest
