Hello, this is Dr K.. Answers are not medical advice and do not constitute a doctor/patient relationship. I look forward to helping you today.

Eye twitching is benign. Most often no cause is found. It is not related to diabetes at all. If it is related to anything at all, it could be related to fatigue and/or stress.

In very rare cases, it can be an early symptom of multiple sclerosis. Your Dr can check you for other signs.

Hope this helps and good luck.
