I have a strange eye issue that I'm unsure of what kind of doctor to even go see. Three weeks ago my right upper eyelid started twitching. I work with computers, and hadn't gotten new glasses in a few years, so I assumed that was the cause. I went to the eye doctor and got new glasses and contacts which seemed to help with the constant twitching. Now though, whenever I or something touches my right ear my right eyelid spasms. This has been going on for two weeks going on three. It only twitches when something contacts my ear more specifically the inner part and lower half of my ear. It may seem trivial but it's annoying when I have to hold my phone to my ear or wear a winter hat or a hoodie. My eye doctor said it would eventually go away. Do the nerves that go to your ear and eyelids connect somewhere? I take vitamins regularly. I don't smoke. I grind my teeth at night but have a guard for that. Any ideas? Should I be worried or just wait a few more weeks before heading to my family doctor?View Thread
