Twitching eye and vestibular neuritus
Hi Doc
I have been diagnosed with vestibular neuritus, the balance nerves of my right ear have been irreperably damaged due to a virus. My right eye twitches constantly, could the 2 be linked and if so what do you suggest I do?
Thank you

Dear MJ
It could be - getting a botox injection in the problem eye muscle will probably the quickest and most permanent solution. If possible see a dermatologist for this.
