Why Does My Eye Twitch? | Responding To Your Comments Ep. 20

In this twentieth episode of Responding to Comments, I tackle the age old question of “why the heck does my eye twitch sometimes?” It might not seem like a life or death question, and it’s not, but annoying eye twitches are something every person experiences at one point or another. I also discuss improving your memory, tongue strength, removing warts, cryotherapy, sweat, and whether cranberry juice can actually cure UTIs. Got more questions? Drop them down below and I’ll work them into my next RTC video!

I LOVE reading your comments and take your suggestions seriously. If there’s a subject you want me to discuss or something you’d like for me to react to, leave a comment down below. Many of my videos have been born out of suggestions directly from you, so don’t hold back!

    I think it's actually blueberry (not cranberry) that helps prevent UTIs, but not because of urine acidification but the antocyanines and flavonoids. Native Americans used a plant called Arctostaphylos uva-ursi (a type of bearberry) for UTIs and it's available as an OTC supplement in some places, but more scientific research is needed to know in which cases it's effective.

    As a person with epilepsy, ( The kind that goes away with age and medicine. They put you through 3 tests during an EEG. Strobe lights, sleep deprivation, and stress. Before the test they attach these wires to your head with really smelly glue. Basically, Strobe lights portion: close your eyes, a bright lamp will be put over your face showing blinking lights at different speeds. Sleep deprivation portion: You’re only allowed to get a max of 5 hours of sleep the night before so in this portion when you fall asleep, one, it’ll be a faster process, and two, if your seizures are triggered by sleep deprivation, you’re more likely to have one during this portion. You can also bring a comfort object if you want. Stress portion: My least favorite, where you have to inhale and exhale like you’re blowing out candles for 5 minutes straight. This is supposed to simulate hyperventilation, and will cause a seizure if you have stress induced seizures. If you have absent seizures, they might also ask you random questions, like what animal goes moo or what color is the sky to see how active your brain is during, before or after the seizure. After all this they rub this cold stuff under the tabs stuck to your head ( EVERY PART OF YOUR HEAD. YES, EVEN IN YOUR HAIR. ) to get them off. They get the excess glue off with this cleaning stuff that somehow smells worse than the glue, and they kind of wash some of it out with a rag and baby soap. After they’re done with that, they give you a COMB, and unless your followup with the neurologist is right after the EEG, you’re free to go! Oh and that smell? That stickiness and greasiness? That doesn’t completely go away until you wash your hair 2-3 times. ( Mainly if you have longer hair. ) To give you an idea, its like someone mixed together Elmers Glue and Vinegar. Hope you learned something! 😊

    I have a question...and a story. I got my braces when I was 16, kinda late i know, I first got my top row done and then my bottom ones a bit later but when I got my bottom ones the pain was really intense. I couldn't eat, bearly slept and I only had liquids for a while. But at this time my mom had me take a bunch of painkillers for a week to try and help with the pain, and it did (i think). I dont remember that week. I know I missed out on this week becuse a teacher came up to me and told me I had gotten a A on my math test (I am the worst at math). I dont remember taking a test at all. My friends also said a was all over the place that week and running our rhe halls and shouting and singing al lthe time. Im wondering, was I high on painkillers? I've discovered that painkillers work less on me now and need to take more then my recommended dose so I think that week might have caused some damage Please dr.Mike im really curious!!!!

    It's a stereotype here that if a boy is experiencing left eye twitches then something bad is going to happen, and if the right one twitches, something good is going to happen. The opposite goes for women. Left for good things and right for bad things.

    When I was younger urinary tract infections were so common for me. I had actually been prescribed cranberry pills that I would have to take in the morning with my other medication, just so that I wouldn't get another one, and now I'm pretty sure the only reason it worked was because of the placebo effect.
