Is the person you're talking about on any anti psychotic drugs? Becasue rapid eye blinking can be a sign of Tardive Dyskinesia which is caused by anti psychotic medications, especially longer term use of them. There are lots of symptoms to this syndrome, like: facial grimacing, pill rolling type finger movements, repetitive chewing motions, protruding the tongue, moving their jaw in a swinging motion, neck twisting and others. They can have some or all them. They can go away IF the drug is stopped soon enough, but can be permanent if not.
