I'm 21 years old and I am a panic and worrier person!

Customer Question

Hello, I'm 21 years old and I am a panic and worrier person! The past month I have had an annoying twitch in my eye I went to my doctor and she said not to worry it's just a twitch and it will go in its own time. But now since the weekend my eyes keep jumping from time to time! Am I to worry? What is it? Is it that I'm not drinking enough? ( which I know I don't anyway!) or do I spend to much time on my phone??? Help! But I remember having jumpy eyes last year for a while!

Okay lovely! Also sorry again my teeth and jaws sometimes feel really weird and like they have moved so this may be teeth clenching I believe? Could this affect my eyes?
Expert:  Dr Basu replied 1 year ago.
Yes this is likely teeth grinding related.
You can use a dental guard at night time during sleeping to avoid that.

Best wishes
