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.

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.

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
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?

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

Nerve is misfiring: The nerves control the muscles, and sometimes one of the nerve fibers gets sensitive and keeps sending signals to the muscle to contract. Since it is only a small part, the whole muscle doesn't do much, but just gets twitchy. This can happen more often when you are under stress, not eating right, or getting enough sleep. There is medication that can help if it doesn't stop. ...Read more

Twitching that is on both sides of the mouth is usually from medications, anxiety, or some metabolic things. ...Read more
