Twitch In The Bridge Of The Nose?
what about the twitching that occurs around the bridge of the nose? What to do?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Twitch in most cases occurs due to muscle fatigue. If it occurs around the bridge of the nose, then the possible triggers are tired eyes (asthenopia), eye refraction disorders (eg myopia, hypermetropia, astigmatism), tense head or neck muscles, and so on. In the medical realm, twitching is termed muscle twitching. In addition to muscle fatigue, the trigger for twitching in the bridge of the nose is the result of the following factors:
Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar)
Disorders of electrolyte balance, eg calcium, potassium, magnesium
Excessive caffeine consumption
Dehydration (lack of fluids)
Peripheral neuropathy (damage to the peripheral nerves)
Excessive anxiety, panic, fear, or stress
Nerve disorders, for example due to Bell's palsy, stroke, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, and so on
If complaints only appear occasionally, these complaints are generally harmless. You can compress the area that often twitches using warm water while resting it, for example by not reading too much, limiting staring at gadgets, and getting enough sleep. Apply a healthy lifestyle, namely by drinking enough, eating balanced nutrition (especially those containing lots of vitamins B1, B6, and B12), limiting caffeine, staying away from cigarettes and alcohol, and avoiding stress.
However, if after making the above efforts optimally the twitching still recurs frequently, you should immediately consult a neurologist so that further treatment can be carried out.
I hope this helps.
