I'm feeling a bit like a 1960s pop hit at the moment. Four weeks in on CAP, two weeks on Zith and all is going fine....... except for the twitch. It's my right eyelid and it's annoying. Actually, annoying isn't the half of it, it's driving me nuts.
I've had something like it before when I'm over tired but this is nothing to do with lack of sleep; since I've had the Melatonin I sleep like a log. I'm pretty sure this is to do with CAP. It's the same eye as I had the worst of the Nystagmus in before I was diagnosed with MS.
It's bad enough that I have this constant flickering that won't stop even if I rub my eye but, worse, some chap over the shop on Thursday thought I was winking at him and kept winking back. I stood in the queue mulling over the options for some fun but eventually had to point out that I really wasn't doing it on purpose, at which point the poor guy wished the ground would open up and swallow him.
I have an important business meeting on Tuesday morning and I just can't sit there winking at the clients. They might think I'm offering services above and beyond their web site development.
I thought about double sided sticky tape but having discussed this with Other Half, we reckon that would result in developing a look of constant surprise in one eye which would be marginally worse than the winking.
So before I resort to going all Rock Star and wearing dark glasses, does anyone have any suggestions how I stop this?
