Too little : Information for a meaningful opinion. It may be prudent to see your doctor for an evaluation and to exclude an organic cause. Other common cause is depression. Try eating a balanced diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low in saturated fats, no tobacco and no more than one drink a day. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week even though you feel tired, you will feel better after. ...Read more
Need sleep eval: You may need a sleep study with a seizure montage to see what the exact cause is.

After a careful history, it is possible that the neurologist will opt for a 72 hour seizure study first. Best wishes. ...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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Headache, drowsiness, pressure behind right eye, uncontrollable shaking in head/neck, uncontrollable twitching with eyes, body muscles contract?
See your doctor now: All of these symptoms are not normal. Not sure if your eye muscle twitching contracting is in unison with your body or not? Independently, twitching of the eyes can be benign if it's myokymia and caused by tiredness or exertion. However, it seems you need a physical exam in which your doctor can assess your eyes too, and give you a medical plan to follow. S/he may need to order labs too. ...Read more
Try massaging: And stretching. If there are actual knots like in the arch you might have plantar fibromas, if they just feeel like that it is likely just a cramp. If this is something that occurs frequently, you may have a potassium or magnesium deficiency and should have the doc check it out. A "weak" arch from a flatfoot is another possibility.
