The Eyelids Throb?
, kmrin I was out in the sun in the hot sun, then not long after my eyes were exposed to the hot sun was throbbing and this has been over 2 days the pulse in the eyelid still continues. What do you think this is about?
Hello, good night Khelvin ..
A throbbing eyelid in the medical world is called myokymia, whereas in more severe conditions this condition is called blepharospasm. Twitching of the eye generally occurs in the upper eyelid, but not infrequently also occurs in both eyelids (upper and lower). These complaints generally only last a few seconds to several minutes, but can also be lost arise for several days. Generally this condition is harmless and does not interfere, Most of these conditions can disappear by themselves without any treatment
Some causes of eyelid twitching include:
strain on the eyelid muscles
lack of sleep
the use of certain drugs
alcohol consumption, caffeine, and smoking
As mentioned above, this condition will generally disappear by itself. However, you need to be aware and immediately consult a specialist neuropathy if:
twitching of the eye followed by paralysis of one side of the face (it becomes difficult to smile symmetrically, it is difficult to close one eye, change the shape of the face, and one side of the face looks drooping). If there are complaints, it is feared that you will experience Bell's palsy
you experience red eyes, swollen eyelids, and excessive eye discharge
twitching continues for several weeks
Meanwhile, what you can do at home include:
get enough sleep
do not smoke
Avoid alcoholic and caffeinated drinks
if the twitch begins to feel back, warm compresses on the eyelid
limit your screen to electronic devices or gadgets
That's all, hopefully it helps .. :)
