twitching 
27th-Jul-2009 10:02 pm [pregnancy symptoms]
So here's a random symptom for y'all to ponder--twitching?!  My last pregnancy I had a lot of facial twitching, like my eyes and my upper lip.  The doctor had no real explanation and said to try calcium...I have taking plenty of calcium this pregnancy, and sure enough, more facial twitches...another doctor was also pretty stumped but said that the increase in blood leads to eye twitching, but it doesn't explain the lip twitching...Please tell me I am not alone in this maddening symptom.  Doe alone else twitch, and if so, are there any explanations for it or anything that relieves it?

My left eye has been twitching on and off for the last couple of weeks, it's incredibly annoying. It used to do the same thing occasionally before I was pregnant and I generally put it down to eye strain, stress or tiredness.

This. I get a twitch in my eye if I don't get enough sleep. It usually starts when I'm at work (I use two computer screens all day and we have terrible lighting) after I haven't gotten enough rest.

My left eye has been twitching, too, and it's simply annoying. Everyone in this country immediately assumes I just must be tired. I have a hard time believing that's really all there is to it considering I am always tired. ^.~

My pinky finger has been twitching on and off for a number of weeks now! It's driving me crazy!

No clue what causes it though.

ive had quite a bit of eye twitching. I could see it being the extra blood volume, i never considered it really. Figured it was just one of those things.

I'm sure it's just normal nerve stress.

one of my eyes was twitching for a few weeks on and off. it was kind of annoying and i doubt it was from lack of sleep - i usually sleep very well. thankfully it has stopped :)

ooh! I have eye twitching all the time! I figured it was pregnancy related, but I hadn't really thought it through. It's annoying.

I had two weeks of eye twitching. It was maddening. It left as mysteriously as it began.

Sorry I have no words of wisdom (or even crackpot ideas of what to do about it), but I can commiserate.

like muscle cramps, you should be able to "control" it with magnesium and potassium. Bananas ahoy!
