I am feeling dizzy, have intermittent twitching on the left side of my forehead, and sweating.  What could be the cause?

Adrenaline: Unless the sweating is only on the left side of your forehead then it sounds like a release of adrenaline by your body in response to a physical or emotional stress situation. Please see your health care provider if it persists or worsens. ...Read more

Why does scar on leftside of my forehead twitch involuntarily?

Why  does scar on   leftside of my forehead twitch involuntarily?

Nerve trouble: If you had an injury that affected your facial nerve, you can develop synkinesis, which is a condition where nerves grow to the incorrect muscle and make them twitch inappropriately. You should see a neurologist or ENT to check your face out and see about options for making this less bothersome for you. ...Read more

I've hav a visible artery that forks out and runs down the middle of my forehead. Lately its started twitching no pain. When touching it i can feel it?

I've hav a visible artery that forks out and runs down the middle of my forehead. Lately its started twitching no pain. When touching it i can feel it?

Vein: Very likely is a vein and not an artery. If you could feel it pulsating in rhythm with your heart beat then is an artery. In any case I do not think it represents an issue. I am not certain of the significance of the twitching you mention. One good piece of information is the lack of pain. It is always good to discuss this with your physician to evaluate if there is a need for further testing. ...Read more

Felt twitch near my forehead..above brows. I haven't gotten sleep lately due. To pinched nerve in my neck ? What's the twitch thing about ?

Felt twitch near my forehead..above brows. I haven't gotten sleep lately due. To pinched nerve in my neck ? What's the twitch thing about ?

Facial Twitch: Dear Sydney: a pinched nerve in the neck usually presents with neck pain and occipital headache (pain in back of head), not a facial twitch. Since you are also complaining of insomnia and a facial twitch, I wonder if it is related to medications or drugs, or even too much caffeine. If this does not resolve, talk with your physician. All the best! Nisha ...Read more

Spasms : Muscle spasms can occur due to various conditions. Spasm of the eyelid muscles, myokymia, may be associated with excess caffeine, alcohol use, poor sleep hygiene and electrolyte abnormalities. When it is associated with facial spasm, other conditions are possible and sometimes imaging is required. ...Read more
