Hi Carol,

Yes, eye twitching can be part of MS.  You did not specify if it is erratic eye movements or eyelid twitching.  Both happen in MS.  Eyelid twitching is actually a small spasm, often as a result of stress or fatigue.  Talk with your doctor.  Medication can help.

However, it can also be a symptom of several other things.  Again, it is a good idea to talk with your doctor.

Good luck.  I hope your eye relaxes.
