Hi Ruby,

I had the same problem a while back. It is usually caused by stress or lack of magnesium in the body.

All you can do is have lots of rest, relax and you can also buy these little packets called " Magnesit"  at the pharmacy that you mix with water. It helped me! I struggled with an eye twitch for weeks and that was the only thing that helped!

Hope it works for you!
