When to Worry about Eye Twitching – You Could be Stirring it Unknowingly

When to Worry about Eye Twitching – You Could be Stirring it Unknowingly

Eye twitching, much like eyelid tics and spasms, is never something that can make you lose sleep over. The habitual rippling muscle contractions come and go, sometimes persisting for a few days and thus prompting one to consider Googling more about it. But what many of us don’t probably know about this is that the twitching can be a precursor to something that’s serious. Of course, you won’t know it unless you get to understand why Sanaz Majd’s “When to Worry about Eye Twitching” post deserves a few minutes of your time!

Take the case of Eileen, a 45-year-old female accountant, for example:

Eileen, just like anyone out there, experienced “intermittent and multiple bouts” of it for about a month. The problem affected her efficiency, and it prompted her to seek the advice of Sanaz. The severity had changed, and the accountant was worried that it was something devastating like a brain tumor – Google says so!

A little glance at her patient’s medical history

Sanaz is a house call medic, and that means she knows how to diagnose a disease and probably a bit more reliable at it than Google. She diagnosed the twitching, and the results were an eye-opener. From her differential diagnoses, it was clear that Eileen’s condition may have resulted from multiple causes.

Surprisingly, among the causes are what we do or have every day – eye strain and fatigue, alcohol, coffee, lack of sleep, eye injuries and other reasons. It isn’t a sign of any cancerous tumor, and from how she questioned Eileen and the conclusions, it is clear why many of us experience it frequently.

Reflection based on the post

Twitching happens typically in the left eye only and affects those who wear glasses as well as those who don’t. From her post, though, it is amazing how what many of us do or have every single day contributes to the twitching, despite the rest of the body working well. Maybe you don’t spend hours on your computer or have no allergies, and you still experience your left eye twitching. Or perhaps you only do a single cup of coffee per day, experience little quality sleep and feel the twitching once per week.

This is just a snippet!

Reading this post, you’ll get to know the reason why you also feel the little twitch and how you can eliminate it. It also explains why the feeling could be a signal to more severe disease like Parkinson’s Disease and Multiple Sclerosis.

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

1. Smart Door Locks

A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

2. Smart Kitchen Tools

Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

These are the latest in home security, and they connect to the Wi-Fi in your home. You can use your mobile devices to monitor what is going on in your home at all times, no matter where you are. Options include motion sensors, two-way audio, and different recording options.

5. Nest Thermostat

This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

6. Smart Lighting

Control your home lighting from your remote device. This is great if you are out and want to make sure that there are some lights on. It is designed to be energy efficient, so it will pay for itself over time because you won’t have to spend so much on your monthly energy bills.

7. Google Chromecast Ultra
