The brain communicates with the skin and in anxiety states various skin sensations can be triggered. Twitches can also be triggered by anxiety due to release of neurotransmitters by the nerves supplying the muscles. Nevertheless I recommend consulting a neurologist to give you peace of mind. Any appropriate testing will be done. You should benefit form stress management coaching.

Skeptical that you have 2 neurological conditions and agree that both headaches and emotions need to be stabilized. I too endorse a visit to a neurologist
