Can't find any info on searchconfused smiley
Had this annoying twitch. Often thought to be due to low Mg but i've taken a supplement for quite some time.
Anyhow, i had a Epson salts bath and the twitch has gone and is still good 12 hours later.
Wonder, is it due to Mg absorption or placibo?

Hi Joe... Not your imagination or placebo. Eye lid twitches are a sign of Mg deficiency. Actually, quite a handy signal for afibbers because it's very telling that one needs to really push the Mg dosing consistently. The Epsom salts baths and sometimes, even a foot soak with the salts will help very quickly.

Jackie and Joe, my left eye lid has been twitching on and off for the past week.

Jackie, I’ll soak my feet tomorrow. Rubbing in the magnesium spray solution burns my skin. I don’t tolerate the burning very well.

My Life-Flo burns and itches real bad. I just got some ASUTRA Magnesium oil a couple of weeks ago, that seem to be less irritating. I got it on Amazon.

I had twitching next to my right eye. I thought it was from using the CPAP mask and it may well have been. But I started using a PEMF therapy mat about a month ago and one of the results was the cessation of the eye twitching.

Just stumbled across this by chance. I have had left eyelid twitching for about 6 months now, just put it down to stress. At least now I know there's some link with magnesium deficiency..

I had twitching eyelids for a week or so. I had been taking 800 mg of magnesium for years. Today I sit here and the twitching just went away on its own.

Interesting! That's why they do placebo controlled double blind trials.
