Twitching in lips, what could be the cause of this? Is it normal?

Depends.. : Localized twitching on one side, usually in just one lip, is fairly common. This tends to go away after a day or two, but it is pretty annoying when it's there. Twitching that involves one side of the mouth, but also the muscles around the eye on that side, is from a different problem. Twitching that is on both sides of the mouth is usually from medications, anxiety, or some metabolic things. ...Read more

Probably not: What you are experiencing could be an phenomenon related to nerve regeneration. You may watch and wait. If the symptoms do not improve in three weeks or so, it would be prudent to see your doctor.
Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.

Spasms: The symptoms that you're describing are benign. Twitches and spasms and even tingling are normal and can occur on the face and neck. Oftentimes they are due to stress or can be induced by exercise. I would recommend some massaging and warm compresses, Otherwise it's not anything dangerous. ...Read more

Twitching..: Sounds like you are having involuntary muscle twitching related to anxiety. Can try relaxation techniques like deep breathing to help calm you down and stop episodes. Could be related to low potassium so eat more bananas. If above measures fail consider consultation with psychologist, consider biofeedback. ...Read more

Widespread muscle twitching (mainly eyes, lips, pelvic floor). No other symptoms. My neuro gave me an EMG and diagnosed it as Dystonia. My question is this: Can you tell the difference between ALS and Dystonia on an EMG or do they both look the same?

Widespread muscle twitching (mainly eyes, lips, pelvic floor). No other symptoms. My neuro gave me an EMG and diagnosed it as Dystonia. My question is this: Can you tell the difference between ALS and Dystonia on an EMG or do they both look the same?

You should: I am not a Neurologist but you should be able to.However, you should not have to get a EMG to tell you that,the history of the symptoms as such should tell you.That being said ,ALS is a difficult disease to diagnose. There is no one test or procedure to ultimately establish the diagnosis of ALS. It is through a clinical examination and series of diagnostic tests, often ruling out other diseases . ...Read more

I've been having eye twitching and twitching above my lip for a few weeks now... Both on the right side.   Nervous it could be a brain tumor.

Nothing to do with B: Muscles often twitch when people are tired, anxious and often for no clear reason. But they have no relationship with having a brain tumor. So you can relax. Brain tumors are generally silent till they get to a size which causes pressure symptoms like headaches, nausea and occasionally a seizure. Unless you had such symptoms you should not be thinking about Brain tumor ...Read more
