Some people may have difficulty getting to sleep because they worry a lot and when they finally fall asleep their muscles twitch which can cause them to wake up.

Fasiculations: Fasiculations may be a benign finding but when localized to only one part of your body it might be a sign of nerve damage; you say that you are having arm and neck pain which raises the possibility that you might have irritation of one of cervical (neck) nerve roots.

Do muscle twitches start before weakness in ALS ?muscle twitches for past 12 days.arm feels weird and that's arm w twitches but twitches other places

Go to your doctor, an ER or an urgent care setting. ...Read more

Not related: I am assuming you mean "pinched nerve" in the neck? This would probably not be related to facial numbness or eye twitching. Furthermore, two different nerves control facial sensation and eyelid closure, so more than one nerve would have to be irritated. Other conditions, such as ms as mentioned, could play a role in all 3. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
