    In terms of your situation, I guess that it may be caused by viruses, infection, bacteria and so on. And there may be another reason for your blinking so constantly. I mean hyperactivity. It is a suddenly involuntary contraction movement. Besides, neurological blink may be the reason, too. Try to relax yourself, the situation may be gone. How about taking a deep breath or doing something else to transfer your attention. A lot of people try this way. By the way, if you have dry eyes, you will also keep blinking, but you can use some mild eye drops to release it. Certain medication will make that happen, too. For example, Ritalin, it will cause side effects, including blinking constantly. Just relax and transfer your attention or go to see a doctor, I am sure you will feel better very soon.
