Eye twitch face numb pinched nerve?

Eye twitch face numb pinched nerve?

Not related: I am assuming you mean "pinched nerve" in the neck? This would probably not be related to facial numbness or eye twitching.

Other conditions, such as ms as mentioned, could play a role in all 3. ...Read more

If that is the case, get help immediately, because seizures, delirium, markedly elevated blood pressure and pulse and many other potentially life and/or health-threatening things can happen to you. Go to your doctor, an ER or an urgent care setting. ...Read more

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 more
