Twitching left eye, left hand fingers numb, upper left lip numbness
For couple of months, my left eye is twitching involuntarily, thought it is the winter cold, then within last week or two, woke up in the AM with numbness in the left hand finger tips and recently woke up to a left side of upper lip being numb, not sure what's going on or it is just normal stuff. Any thoughts?
Eye twitching is a common symptom in many people and usually reflects fatigue or stress. Other causes could be due to corneal irritation, lack of sleep, eye strain, caffeine and alcohol intake and sometimes neurological disorders. As this is associated with finger and lip numbness, consult your doctor to rule out neuropathy.
