Eye twitching

Just finish round two of chemo last week and now my eye is doing a little dance. Anyone else experience this? Is this a side effect of chemo?

Yes, I did. That is a side effect from chemo. It's irritating but it eventually goes away. Wishing your well with your recovery.

Glad to hear this is normal. I have a twitch in my right eye that is pretty much constant. Annoying but at least it is not painful.

I had eye twitching and lots of tearing. I had to keep apologizing to people and let them know I wasn't crying, my eyes were just watering very heavily right now.

I'm almost 4 weeks out from my last chemo infusion and the twitching is slowing down greatly, along with a lot less tears.

This drove me mental! I thought it was a sign of brain mets lol. I know its not "lol". I am trying to find humor in the cracks of the terror I feel everytime a new symptom arises.
