Hello. My name is Mario from Greece and the last month i am having a problem. Before this month i used to have tired eyes and eye migraines. It was the result of computer usage for work as the doctor said and i should get some eye drops to resolve the problem. Everything was okay for some weeks until i started to get small dizziness and having muscle jerking and twitching. I believed it was still tiredness so i took a break. The point is that after the break i still have jerking and dizziness. I believe it is epilepsy (maybe photosensitive epilepsy) but i am not sure. I never had a seizure in my life even in my childhood that i was too much into the video games. Can you please tell me what to do and what i might have? Thanks for your time and I am looking forward for an answer.
The location of the muscles that twitch might have been helpful.
You might want to visit a neurologist to determine whether the symptoms are due to epilepsy or something else is the cause.
The dizziness and the muscle twitching (neck or head muscles, including eyelids’ muscles) might be due to cervical spondylosis. Long period in front of monitor or at least holding the neck in same position might have caused spondylosis.
