I’ve had this problem for about 6 weeks and noticed it mentioned by others in other threads as well. My right eye, the lower lid, has been twitching madly most of the time. It sounds minor, I know, but it gets terribly annoying when it’s strong and almost continuous.
I used to think this was caused by stress, because years ago this would happen every June, which happened to be concert season when I was a fine arts director. However, right now I am under no special stress except for caloric deficit. For about 6 months I have done a fat-adapted diet. Amount of sleep is fine.
I wondered if maybe I need more magnesium and added a magnesium supplement.
I wondered if I had eye irritation due to allergy, so I took Claritin and Benadryl.
I wondered if more carbs would help (I sometimes get blurred vision from low blood sugar on this diet), so I have added some more exercise and more carbs.
After 5 days or so, the twitching is now greatly reduced but not completely gone. Of course, I made 3 changes all at once because I was getting desperate, so I don’t know what helped. I’m favoring the allergy thing, because concert season all those years ago in New England happened to be my nasal allergy season as well, while August/September is especially bad for my allergies here in Southern California.
Any other thoughts, opinions, experiences, suggestions?
