Does anyone else have eyelid tremors? And what do you do to stop them?

17 Replies

I have not yet been to a doctor, but I "know" I have PD from my various symptoms which started 7 to 9 months ago. My eyelid tremors have been getting worse.

Does anyone else experience eyelid tremors?

What do you do to stop it or lessen the frequency?

Self diagnoses is never really a good idea. Oh we all do it , but to rely completely on your own opinion is a little odd, even if you are a doctor.

I have not heard before of anyone complaining about Eyelid tremors being a symptom of Parkinsons. Having said that I am sure someone will contradict me. There are so many things that look like PD that I would strongly suggest that you get a Doctors / Neurologists opinion.

And there are many things that cause eyelid tremor. What are your other PD symptoms ?

Hi, yes my hubby’s eyelids flicker. They have done for many years. I guess that is a tremor. He doesn’t do anything in particular for it.

Diagnosed 2 years ago but had symptoms for longer i think something like 6 doctors told me i didn't have PD and then eventually a PD consultant told me i did.

thank you for your response... i'm still very early with my PD (have not been to a doctor).. Can you please tell me how far 'in' to your PD before you got your eye tremor? thanks and stay strong!

My eyelids will start twitching whenever I take certain kinds vitamin B supplements (thiamine, B12 or B-complex). As soon as I stop, the problem goes away.
