Eye twitching and worried

My right top eyelid has been fluttery twitching for about 5 days , you can barely see if but I can feel it , it comes and goes but worried why it's doing it this long . What I google , some says stress and it will go away and some posts say it could last forever and go to the rest of your face . Even though they say it's a benign condition , it keeps doing this intermittently and making me worry . If it's just stress it should go away and no neurological but if other symptoms happen then it could be permanent and then require surgery and I'm freaked out ! Please help. Thank You . lynl

  • I actually posted about this same issue about two weeks ago but instead of my eye/eyelid it was the right side of my forehead.

    I was terrified that it was something really serious but it went away mostly after a few days of being away from the computer and taking time off of caffeine.

    Try and remain positive and I'm sure you'll feel a lot better over the course of the next few days. Just drink water , try not to focus on screens with bright lights too much, and try not to make yourself too stressed

    I hope you feel better

  • Thank you, glad yours us gone . It is a little scary not knowing why it happens to make it last 5 + days.

  • Mine lasted almost 3 weeks so I definitely understand

  • I get this periodically. Once when I had it for a few days I asked the doctor and she said it was lack of sleep. Told her it was really freaking me out and I just don't know what to do. She said get some sleep. Now when it comes it's a bit unsettling but it doesn't throw me into a full-fledged attack.

  • Thank You? I'm trying to relax about it. It has been a stressful couple months.
