Are you having the twitch on one of your eyelids? Generally, this is a simple lid fasciculation (fancy medical term for twitch), and it will go away on its own within days to weeks. The common causes for a lid twitch are fatigue, lack of sleep, and excess caffeine.
It would be a fair assumption that this is unrelated to ON or MS. However, I have read accounts that say fasciculations anywhere (leg muscle, etc.)are more common with MS.
I would not be too concerned unless the twitch lasts much longer than you would expect, changes in intensity, or becomes constant.
I hope this helps. It is always a bit difficult to assess people without actually seeing them
