How to cure blepharospasm?
Hello, my mother in law is 74-year-old woman. She was previously healthy. But she had been suffering from frequent and intense bilateral spasms of the eyelids for 4 years. It did not involve any other muscle of the face or neck. She reported an abnormal feeling of tension in the eyelids and subsequently, involuntary excessive blinking developed. These spasms were in suppressible, exacerbated by stress and bright light; furthermore their frequency and severity have been worsening over the years. Doctor diagnosed that she has blepharospasm. Can anyone please suggest that how to cure this?
@rathin Blepharospasm is a rare condition that causes your eyelid to blink or twitch. You can’t control it. This is called involuntary blinking or twitching. The twitching is caused by a muscle spasm around your eye. Blepharospasm is just one of several reasons your eyes might twitch. More common reasons include minor things, such as being tired or high caffeine use. Serious reasons might include neurological diseases. Blepharospasm affects women more than men. It may run in families. There is no cure for blepharospasm. But there are treatments to ease symptoms. Treatments also may depend on the underlying cause of your blepharospasm. For example, medicines used to treat Parkinson’s disease may ease the eye twitch. Some people use alternative treatments. These could include biofeedback, acupuncture, hypnosis, chiropractic care, and nutritional therapy. These haven’t been proven to be effective treatments.
