Eye Twitching Every Time You Get Water?
Hello, I am 23 years old. My upper left eyelid twitches every time I get wet, even when I enter the bathroom my eyelids twitch. Bathing, ablution, and washing face always twitch. But beyond that my eyes did not twitch. I wonder why? Thank you 🙂
Hello Denisaagnia, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
Eye twitching in medical also called blepharospasm is a recurring movement of the upper eyelid that occurs spontaneously and suddenly and this movement is involuntary. actually this twitch can occur anywhere in the body.
Eye twitching can occur in one or both eyes which usually occurs in about 2 minutes, and in most cases it can disappear naturally. Some things can trigger a twitch, but until now there has been no data that has been curbed with water that can trigger a twitch. Here are some factors that can trigger eye twitching for example: lack of sleep, fatigue, consuming too much caffeine, stress, irritation in the eyes for example due to pollution.
Or eye twitching can also occur due to certain medical problems such as eye health problems and nerve disorders. We recommend that you consult an ophthalmologist if a complaint of twitch is accompanied by complaints such as swollen eyes, difficulty opening eyes, excessive eye discharge, red eyes, and twitching do not improve within a few weeks.
Apart from eye problems, twitching can also occur as a sign of a nervous breakdown, although rarely you also need to be aware of when the twitching does not improve over a period of weeks, accompanied by weakness of facial facial muscles which makes it difficult for you to open and close eyes, saliva continues out, or weakness of the body side, tingling or numbness on one side of the face. If you see these symptoms immediately check with your doctor at the ER or the nearest health facility.
In the meantime give me a number of ways you can help reduce complaints about your twitch, namely:
Get enough rest
Avoid excessive caffeine consumption
Compress the eyes with eyes closed using a warm towel
Limit staring at the computer or another computer for too long, give your eyes time to rest
Beyond this, if the twitch does not improve within 1-2 weeks, you should consult a doctor to find out the cause and can be given a quick and appropriate treatment.
That's all the answers from us, hopefully useful
