A member asked:

Is myokymia (little and non-stop contractions of the muscles around the eye and eyelid) considered normal during the bell's palsy recovery (1 month)?

Myokymia: As you recover, the nerve function is sensitive, and fasciculatory activity would be expected. Would not worry about the activity around your eye, as is most likely part of recovery.
