We're going to Middlesbrough in August and I was told to bring my stab proof vest. However I've got a stomach full of scars from surgery so I'll just show the villains my scars and explain that I've been pre stabbed so as to save them the hassle.

They were discussing on BBC Radio 5 Live a new documentary Hometown, must get myself a VPN sounded quite chilling.

Twitching eye lid, so annoying after a few days straight of it.

Amazing how something so small can be so annoying.

Based on google search, my guess is stress related, stress levels are at an all time high, so makes sense since the twitching started with the increase in stress a few days ago.

Get your partner to punch you in the eye.

Won't solve the problem but will take your mind off it.

Definitely stress related JS. Fingers crossed that it stops very soon!

Try Benadryl (diphenhydramine hydrochloride, generic name). It's an antihistamine with very mild sedative effectis and can help with anything twitchy as well as any skin issues caused by stress (which is what I used it for years ago now). The generic is dirt cheap, too, and over the counter.

And also available as an OTC sleep aid pill, same generic, same dose available. Same price too when I last looked.

Why don't they just market the drug the same as they do for Ibuprofen/Acetaminophen? I mean you don't buy "Pain relief" pills and "Fever" pills containing the same dose of whichever of Ibuprofen/Acetaminophen you prefer, you just buy one bottle and use it accordingly.

I think I'd make a lousy pharmaceutical marketer.

Yeah, you really don't get this marketing thing at all, do you
