Eye twitching since I gave birth

I went into labor on august 31st and while I was in labor my eye starting twitching non stop. Now it is January and my eye is still twitching every single day, at least once a day. Should I be concerned or should I see a doctor? What could be the cause and how can I make it stop??

Most of the time these twitches called myokymia or fasciculations are harmless, and resolve on their own.  Since yours have been so persistent, I would see an ophthalmologist for an exam.
