Involuntary movements an issue? Have invol. Movements only when i try sleeping. Lip puckering/ twitching. Jaw moving. Muscle twitch. Face twitching.
Could be normal.: Involuntary movements may occur during the dreaming phase of sleep. 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. It can also happen when you are very tired and yet you may have a hard time to relax and sleep. I wouldn't worry too much about this. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Chapped lips & HSV?: In short, no. Chapped lips are the same as "dry skin" over any other part of your body. They're not the result of a virus. Increasing hydration & using a barrier/salve (aquaphor, petroleum jelly) to maintain moisture should help resolve chapped lips. HSV is a virus. It's initial presentation on the mouth (which may be 1 or 2) is in a blister, that typically bursts & crusts over & is painful. ...Read more

Suffered facial palsy post craniotomy. Face appears mostly normal but when I smile or laugh my lip twitches. Is this Synkinesis or nerve irritated?
Probably weakness: There's no way to know without seeing it but usually synkinesis is the yoking of the movements of the eye and mouth: when you smile you blink and vice versa but only on the damaged side. Twitching of a previously damaged area is likely residual weakness from the injury or continued irritation. Would be tough to get isolated lip irritation from a craniotomy injury. I would go with weakness ...Read more
What causes lip shaking..My upper lip muscles is shaking voluntarily?Im getting anxious with it.What would it be
Anxiety Itself: Do you mean "voluntarily" to mean "on its own" or by your purposeful movement? At your age, the most likely cause of a lip "shaking" would be anxiety, which is a sense of ill-at-ease which has no specific focus and is biologically determined. If you then are nervous about the lip movement, it likely will shake even more. I encourage you to seek anxiety management: relaxation, therapy, meds, etc. ...Read more
