SeveralPossibilities: Most cases of a twitching lip may be due to stress, fatigue, emotion, excessive caffeine intake or some deficiency in the diet such as potassium. Lip twitching in most cases is self-limiting, disappearing in minutes or maybe in a few days without any residual problems. Persistent twitching, especially if associated with other symptoms, should be investigated. See http://bit.ly/1TPjy6c ...Read more

Not Parkinson's: There are a host of poorly-understood facial reflexes that happen in response to different stimuli, often on the face. They vary considerably from person to person. That this is familial is interesting. Parkinson's doesn't present this way. ...Read more
