Default Upper eyelid spasm

For 3 weeks now I have been experiencing a strong upper left eyelid spasm. I have also had some in my right check area. The eye spasm is becoming increasingly uncomfortable. I am having neck pain at my C2-3 pressure behind my eyes and headaches. Any ideas?

It sounds like you are experiencing occipital or trigeminal neurolga. I’ve been dealing with those symptoms for years. Welcome to the club.

Hi Cheryl, sorry to hear this. I had this problem too, Ortho and eye doc's had no clue except to blame it on me or some other problem. I went to a place and did brain training [bio-feedback] with electrodes placed in different positions on your head. They did a map first to see where to place sensors and then you watch images and concentrate on different things that they tell you to. Sounds crazy, but it works, or worked for me at least.I no longer have the eye lid, cheek, upper lip spasms and headaches/ migraines greatly reduced. Google places that do brain training/ bio feedback or near feedback in your area. Good luck
