Can eye twitch be neurological problem?

Question: Can eye twitch be neurological problem?

Answer: Eye twitching isn’t so much a neurological problem as it is a possible symptom of neurological problems. Although quite rare sometimes an eye twitch is a sign that you have a neurological disorder. This is particularly worrisome if you have other health issues in addition. In the vast majority of cases though it’s simply a benign fasciculation (harmless muscle twitch) caused by something like stress or fatigue and resolves when those underlying causes are addressed.

    The eye twitching is happening more often lately. I have been having problems with headaches for a few days, off and on. I sustained a head injury 2.5 years ago to the right side of my head. This accident resulted in a “black spot” on my brain where the hardest part of the injury occurred. Is this cause for alarm?

    Yes, be sure you visit a doctor immediately.
