Left side of upper lip has twitched for several mins at a time 3 or 4 times in the past week. is this likely benign? I'm female, 40, thyroid is fine.

If she has some spotting or light bleeding that doesn't look like her normal regular period, she can check a urine pregnancy test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened) to see if she is pregnant. ...Read more

If no headache or other symptoms, don't go to the emergency department for it, but call your doctor as discuss it soon. ...Read more
