Why does this happen? It's right under my left eye. It started when finals began. Now that finals are over plus an extra week, why does it continue to twitch? Mother says, "It's stress, darling." Is it? What else could cause my eye to twitch? Not just my eye... I do believe that it was once elsewhere on my body, somewhere along my forearm. But nothing drives me more crazy than when it happens on my face. It is such a distraction!
