Right Index finger and right eye lid twitching. Leg cramps, neck pain, headache on temples. Vertigo.

Small bump inside skin forehead left side. tingling left side face, eye hurts, slight pressure on forehead, itchy scalp left side, swelling left brow?
EyeThinkYouNeedADoc: Putting that all together, except the itchy scalp, I'd suggest you get yourself checked for inflammation of a small artery on that side (near the temple). That could be signalling a deeper problem that could affect your eyesight (your eye is already hurting, right?). I may be wrong and I hope I am. But get to your doctor tomorrow for an exam and maybe a blood test or two. Better safe than sorry. ...Read more
See answer below: It is important here to define where exactly your face hurts. If it is isolated to one side in a specific distribution, such as for example, from the corner of the eye to the corner of the mouth, or below the corner of the mouth to the jaw, and feels like an electrical pain, you may have trigeminal neuralgia. The temple twitch is harder to pin point and you'll need to be examined for that. ...Read more

Spasms? My lower abdomen is twitching no pain it's just annoying. It more to the right side could it just be spasms just started about an hour ago
Wouldn't worry: Twitching abdominal muscles are different from spasming abdominal muscles. One hurts like a son of gun and one hurts like a son of a daffodil (i.e. doesn't hurt at all).

Best way to find out, see a neurologist or an ENT specialist, and get opinion. ...Read more

My right upper cheek has been involuntarily twitching- on and off for about 2 weeks now. What could this mean? There is no pain and no other symptoms.

Cheek twitching.: Cheek twitching may rarely be due to fasciculation yet far more likely be caused by hemifacial spasm. Fasciculation is a sign of ALS yet very unlikely to be found on the cheek.

I am on MTX & feel like all I am doing is complaining to my Rheum about the side effects. My cheek is twitching. Is that serious enough to tell her?
Neuropathy: from Methotrexate can cause focal muscle twitching and numbness. Have your Rheumatologist check you for neuropathy or better yet have her send you to a neurologist who can perform a nerve conduction test.

He was switched to Embrel (Enanercept) and the neuropathy resolved (as did his skin lesions and arthritic pain) ...Read more

Facial myokymia: No fully convinced of the above diagnosis, but based on your description, you could have a problem in the brainstem pontine area. A good idea to see a neurologist, and if appropriate, get an MRI to see what is occurring. Alternatively, consider jaw or dental issues, but not clear if this is the case. ...Read more

Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more
