It will eventually stop. My one eye does this when I am under stress for a long period and my nervous system is aggitated.-- Just ride it out, it will stop.

I think you should start a strict detox regime and toxins cause many symptoms...
There are detox instructions in the Sticky Thread "New to Lyme?  Start Here"..
Hope that helps,

Take some magnesium, it really helps my twitches.

I agree with the detox baths and magnesium advice. Works for me.

Well, under usual circumstances, the annoying eye twitch would normally be caused by the not so serious factors as follows : -
# Stress
# Tiredness
# Eyestrain
# Caffeine
# Alcohol
# Dry eyes
# Nutritional imbalances
# Allergies
Next, under such situations, such annoying symptoms would usually come and go within a very short period of time and certainly the conditions would get better and better from time to time especially when certain related treatments are sought and administered to deal with the symptom.
However, under rare circumstances when the eye twitch symptom just get progressively and chronically and seriously unmitigated from bad to worse as well as seem to last permanently even when all sorts of related treatments are adminstered upon such illness to deal with it, such non-stop eye twitching symptom may then simply just manifest as one of the serious neuromuscular / neurological symptoms of
# Tardive Dyskinesia (rapid involuntary uncontrollable eye blinking / eye twitching), which
   in most cases are caused by the neuromuscular / neurological side effects of certain 
   medications and other neurological complications. Whilst the underlying mechanism of
   such a disease is such that the normal  functionings of the neurotransmitters 
   chemical dopamine which co-ordinates the miscellaneous human body movements
   in this case are disturbed,antagonized and disrupted in this case resulting in one's loss of
   control of human body movements, and in this case, one's eye / eyelids organ.
