I have nerve on the side of my eye that has been twitching for the last three weeks. It is very irretating and does not seem to stop. Any ideas on what to do..I have not injured it in any way but it just started and has not stopped since.

Hi Joe
Try taking a muscle relaxant like Robaxin and put a warm cloth over the area. If it still persists, you can have the muscle injected with botox ( rarely necessary)
