Why does my top left eye twitch and now my bottom left lip twitching?

Why does my top left eye twitch and now my bottom left lip twitching?

Probably nothing: Twitching of the small muscles of the face is common, but rarely pathologic. This finding is most commonly associated with fatigue, overuse or other forms of stress. I would not be surprised if you are working long hours on something and not getting enough sleep. You can use B complex vitamins which some believe help with this symptom, but I suggest plenty of sleep and relaxation- be well! ...Read more

Lower left lip twitching for weeks. Numbness in the face mainly around my outer left eye. After hours of twitching my face actually hurts. What is this?!

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

It is not a dangerous condition, and never do to anything as potentially dangerous or debilitating. It was more of a cosmetic issue than anything else. Sometimes, they could follow a viral infection of the trigeminal nerve. ...Read more

Why was my lip twitching after hardcore oral sex? I'm a female sucking a male.

Why was my lip twitching after hardcore oral sex? I'm a female sucking a male.

Here are some...: Don't suck or serve oral sex for men for 1 week and see. If the described twitching fades, you confirmed if it's related what you did. To suck right, you need to exert muscles around the mouth, chins, and jaw, in time resulting in muscle tiredness-related soreness and twitching. But over time, such twitching may ease like the effects on exercising muscles in arms or legs. More? Ask Doc... ...Read more

I have HSV-2. For 3 days now I've experienced lip twitching every few minutes. No cold sore outbreak yet. Lip twitching due to herpes or something else?

I have HSV-2. For 3 days now I've experienced lip twitching every few minutes. No cold sore outbreak yet. Lip twitching due to herpes or something else?

Not herpes: Herpes doesn't cause lip twitching. And unless you caught oral herpes at the same time you acquired your genital HSV2 infection, it is unlikely you have oral HSV2. Most "twitching" of small muscles (in the lip or anywhere else) is called benign fasciculation. It's harmless and usually doesn't indicate any important health problem. Google "benign fasciculation" for more information. ...Read more
