Hmm...What Could This Mean?

Back home we have a superstition that when your eye is twitching, something's gonna happen. The nature of the event is  determined by the eye.

Like if it's the right eye, it's a good thing and if it's the left eye, it's a bad thing. Or the other way around. I really don't know because I don't believe in superstitions. Because for these kinds of things, I believe there is a medical or scientific explanation.

My left eye has been twitching for two days now, so I just looked it up. That's code for Googling, because I do it too much and I don't want you to think I go there for everything.

Psst...I actually do ;)

Anyway, while reading the top two search results, I found that it's a condition called Myokymia and it's nothing. I mean it might mean something when it's more violent or if it involves both eyes. Neither in my case. It's probably gonna go away soon.

Meanwhile, to get rid of the discomfort, these steps were recommended.

1) Get more sleep this week - I'm just gonna pretend I didn't see this cos if I slept any more, I'll just need to not get out of bed at all.
2) Use a warm compresses ( warm water on washcloth) a few times a day - This I will try.
3) Try to de-stress - Um...okay. Not that I am stressed. Or am I?
4) Drink less caffeine - I might be drinking a black coffee right now, but it's just once a day, so I'm gonna ignore this one too.

Has this ever happened to you?

Do you have superstitions?
