    Yes, the thyroid problems may cause the eye twitching. Since you have the thyroid problems, the immune system in the body will be decreased. The eyes may easily get the bacterium which may cause the eye twitching. Or the dry eyes may cause it too. There are many reasons to cause the thyroid problems. The first one is the uneven diet. Most patients tend to be pay attention to the intake of food with high quantity of heat. They have neglected the fruits and vegetables intake. The second reason is the iodine intake. Either too high or too low amount of iodine intake will cause the thyroid problems. The third main cause is the unbalance in the psychology. The pressure and bad mood can not only affect appetite sleep but also affect the immune function and body health which will easily cause the thyroid problems. The last cause is the trauma infection, trauma car accident hurt and a cold which are likely to cause body infection disease and cause thyroid problems. Thus, you'd better have a good rest for the body and eyes. Treating the thyroid problems is the first task to stop the eye twitching.

    Yes. Thyroid problems, especially Grave's disease, can cause some eye disease, including eye pain, eye twitching, eye dryness and eye lid retraction. The symptoms are spastic. Checking materials you could find many people with thyroid problems are suffering from eyes problems for years. So my suggestion is that you should seek help from professional doctor as soon as possible so that your problem will not go worse. Hope you could heal up soon!

    Indeed it is true that thyroid problems cause eye twitching. Electrolyte abnormality, Graves diseases and nerves compression cause eye twitching. While graves' disease can also be caused by the growth of a thyroid nodule on the thyroid gland. The symptoms of Graves' disease that include nervousness, anxiety, irritability, weight loss, bulging eyes, and hypertension.
