constant eye twitch?

Recommended Posts

jude

Hi there,

Can HSV2 cause eye twitching? Never in my whole life have I suffered from constant eye twitching, but since my diagnosis (3 months ago) I have developed a slight twitch in my right eye. It comes and goes, but I usually get it for at least 3/4 days out of a week...which is a lot! It's unnoticeable to a perceiver, but it's rather distracting and disrupts my concentration.  

Is this herpes related? and if so is there the possibility of it getting worse?

Many thanks in advance,

Jude

I don't know. I've had the same but then again, many people that may or may not have herpes do. Right now it is gone but it was there for many months. But that was in a year full of stress because my father died and a short time later my dog, and a project at work I loved a lot was stopped for all the wrong reasons, and I got herpes. It was such a great year..... Twitching can be stress related.

Lately I have been noticing twitching in my chin. Also very weird.

I hope it goes away and try not to pay attention to it.

HSV-2 cannot cause eye twitching from its genital location. I'd agree with above comments that stress related factors possibly a culprit, speak to your doctor.

@Hansje Thank you for your reply, you're right it probably is stress related. Sorry to hear about your stressful year, that can't have been easy. I'm going try to meditate more to see if that helps! all the best <3

@WilsoInAus Thank you for your reply. I was wondering whether it is possible to spread hsv2 to the eye and as a result have minor symptoms such as twitching? Also what would hsv2 oral symptoms be?

Oral HSV-2 symptoms are no different to oral HSV-1 symptoms, except that the frequency is either zero or years in between for the average person.

Once the genital HSV-2 infection has been established, it essentially cannot be spread to other parts of the body. There is no documented case of this occurring.

Herpes does not cause eye twitching.

@wilsolnAus your wrong...Herpes can cause twitching all over the body..additionally it can spread to other parts of the body! It lives in the nerves so it’s not far fetched! Where are you getting your information?!?  I have had this crud since 2011. Without fail whenever an out break is over I have muscle twitches ranging from my legs to my eye lids. It only last a few days but its definitely caused by this monster hiding in my body. Also this crud has spread to my inner thigh before as well as my chest area. You should realize this monster affects everyone differently!

No, herpes does not cause twitching all over the body. Twitching is an anxiety/stress reaction which absolutely can be brought on by realizing prodome is going on/ OB occuring/other factors.

Your HSV didn't spread. It infects the lower nerve ganglion and anywhere that nerve branch services your body the virus can pop up on, so you did not 'spread' anything to your thighs , it just decided to pop up there instead of your initial infection site.

My eyes twitch atleast 3/4 times a day. And more recently I have been twitching all over my body. Not due to stress definately H related. When I first got eye twitches I didn't even realise it was H related.

As mentioned, herpes will not be the cause of the twitching for your eye or other body locations.

WilsolnAUS there is one thing all of us with eye twitching have in common and thats  herpes so I think its fair to say its possible the twitching is H related.

90% of people will get HSV-1 and it doesn’t cause eye twitching. There are numerous issues to cause eye twitching, herpes had never been suggested as one of them.

Everyone experiences eye twitching but when its more than usual then I think its H related. Too much if a coincidence dont you think ?

I get eye twitching as well, never had it before HSV2. I also think I may have spread it to my eye.

Eye twitching is almost always harmless on its own but if it were herpes which is not impossible you'd probably have other symptoms in your eye besides twitching, so it's probably nothing.

Look at it this way. Assume someone has eye twitching and has hsv. There are two possibilities; they had eye twitching before hsv or they had it after hsv.
There's essentially a 50/50 chance of either of those two possibilities. So getting eye twitching after hsv is not a strong indicator that it is from hsv.

Could hsv on the eyelid cause it to twitch? Yes, that's possible, but why would you jump to that conclusion given that there are so many other reasons why the eyelid can twitch?

The likelihood that your twitching eyelid is from hsv is very low.

I've also had other symptoms in my eye. Including vision deterioration and at times total loss of ability to focus.

The same logic applies since there are multiple reasons, I'm sure, why these other symptoms can occur other than hsv. If I had these symptoms I would see an eye doctor. Have you done so?

      So I was recently just diagnosed with HSV- 2 , 26 years of age, no signs of symptoms till a week ago. Taking VALTRAX, sores are slowly but surely healing and going away. My question is how have you handled this with your partner? I’ve been completely honest w/ her throughout this entire process, and she seems to be taking it in more roughly than I am. I’ve had the same partner for 2 1/2 years and no signs or symptoms have had ever occurred till now. My doctor said it could have been distress or poor immune system to trigger my flare up. 
      Sexually, what are tips that have helped you prevent these flare ups.
      New to this so, any advice would be great.
      Home remedies for further prevention?

      Hi there, 
      Long time lurker, first time poster, and I'll keep it simple and condensed. 
      I've only signed up because I realize the depths of suffering some people are in, trying all sorts of desperate treatments, and I've basically been sitting on something that has taken me to near 0 outbreaks (hsv1 genital).
      When I first got infected some years back, I had an atypical presentation--no pain or itching, but permanently there. Bumps going up and down within the same day even, but pretty much permanently covering the head of my penis. Doctor swabbed it--came back hsv 1; he said it looked like it to him too. 
      Now to the meat of it--rubbing alcohol.
      Its simple, and I'm pretty surprised that I've only seen it mentioned once here--a woman was talking about it, so I assume it works for girls too. I apply once daily, to once every 3 days, and that keeps me pretty much permanently outbreak free. 
      It quite literally went from every day broken out for me to just about nothing. Anyway, to the what and where of it all... 
       
      I use 99% isopropyl. 70% seems good too. I now have a spray bottle, but used to just dump it on the head and roll my foreskin up over it for like 20ish seconds--whatever process is actually happening, I like to think I'm facilitating absorption into the soft tissue by doing this and wreaking havoc on the virus. Obviously, you may have to do it a bit differently, genital depending.
      I've been doing this treatment for a few years now, so it has staying power. I read once that herpes is shreded by alcohol, so if true, I guess that explains it? However, iterupting regular treatment seems to have anecdotally, but not with great surety, made the herpes a bit less suceptible to the alcohol upon resumption. 
      Yes, it burns terribly at first. Over time it gets better. Some days it still really burns, and in those cases I advise listening to your body and cutting the countdown short. Other than that, it feels really damn good to basically tell herpes to eff off. 
      I don't know what kind of health risks there are. Or whether using a high % grain (drinking) alcohol would work / be healthier. I advise asking your doctor--afterall, alchohol is implicated in throat cancer. Who knows if 20-30 seconds daily on your junk can do something too. 
      But for those who struggle constantly, I truly hope this can help someone other than just me. 
       
      I also hope that this finds its way to the right forum. I wanted it in a place where casual, straight from Google, viewers would see it when they came here, and I'm hoping--and asking, please--that if I didn't get it in the right place, a moderator can instead. And, should it help as I suggest, perhaps even stickying it one day. 
      I'm sorry in advance, I'm not a big forum person and don't come here crazy often. It just felt like something I should do for everyone else's sake. Hopefully you can excuse me if I'm an absentee topic starter. 
      Thanks for reading,
      - Taylor
       
      Edit:
      I forgot to add in any negative effects I've experienced. 
      Sometimes, if its burning more than usual and I leave it too long, it does make the skin pinker than it should be, and sore. 
      The big question, what about loss of sensitivity? I worried that may happen, and its possible actually that I've lost some amount. But if I have, it wasn't even enough to remember when posting this originally, hahaha.
      Still every body is different, so I can only speak for me. But yes, for me, my sensitivity down there is still in great shape. 
      Over the last few years I've on average had less stiff erections, and dysfunction, which I never had before. However, I've also been less physically healthy, I've been mentally disengaged and highly anxious around sex and sexuality (and when I'm not anxious, it often improves quite a bit), I read once that herpes itself can actually cause forms of ED, and I'm also now out of my 20's, so... 
      Possibly related? But also very possibly unrelated to the alcohol. I'm biased though, both in mentality and my words here. So, perhaps consult a doctor if you're concerned. 
      Cheers!

      Yeah and the stigma hit me pretty hard since I'm originally from Asia and we don't have sex ed or STD education so the regret and self-hating are as bad as stigma. Hoping is the only way to get me out of suicidal thoughts. I know that a lot has been done and I'm glad. I just hope they continue with the hsv research instead of abandoning it cuz it's not life-threatening and I also hope that the big pharma conspiracy isn't real.

      @Dvm, he says this to almost everyone.  Best ignore his bad advice

      Thx so much. However HSV can affect the trigeminal nerve/from post herpetic neuralgia and can actually cause all these symptoms. Some people, once affected can have short term symptoms,  while others have sporadic flare ups and some are permanently affected. Gabapentin for trigeminal neuralgia, prescribed by my neurologist, did help me for some time,  but I'm glad to be off it.  Hope my post helps someone w similar issues who havent gotten help from primary care Dr.
    • WilsoInAus
      @Dvm you can be assured that HSV is not the cause of these issues. As you have found, it’s likely a spinal issue and it sounds like you have found some help. Stick with that.
