Question: Can a lack of potassium cause eye twitching?

Answer: Unlike vitamin B12 there is no scientific evidence (that I’ve found) which links potassium deficiency to eye twitching. However, there is a lot of anecdotal evidence to support this claim. Essentially you can find a lot of people who claim that potassium deficiency is what was causing their twitch but not really any proof. It’s important to consider your diet when you’re trying to determine if a vitamin deficiency is the likely cause. Most people know how nutritional their diet is so it’s important to weigh the answer to that question against the other possible causes to determine if it’s a likely cause or not.
