Last stage COPD lower lip twitching is this normal.

Not normal: With severe COPD comes anxiety and often that can be manifested by quivering lips.
Is there any tingling sensation? Any issues with hand spasms? In that case we think about your calcium level being low.
If there are no symptoms of muscle weakness, flickering or fasciculations elsewhere, it is less likely to be a neurological condition. Try meditation-helps many of my patients with severe copd. ...Read more

Why is my face sore and lip twitching while taking metoprolol and flecainide?

Hard to say.: These are not common side effects of either of these meds. Lip twitching can be due to a variety of other issues most of which are benign, but the facial soreness is a little bit more concerning. Really depends upon where the soreness is located. Could represent a variety of dermatologic conditions or even sinusitis or dental issues. ...Read more

Why was my lip twitching after hardcore oral sex? I'm a female sucking a male.

Why was my lip twitching after hardcore oral sex? I'm a female sucking a male.

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. But over time, such twitching may ease like the effects on exercising muscles in arms or legs. More? Ask Doc... ...Read more

Why does my top left eye twitch and now my bottom left lip twitching?

Why does my top left eye twitch and now my bottom left lip 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. I would not be surprised if you are working long hours on something and not getting enough sleep. You can use B complex vitamins which some believe help with this symptom, but I suggest plenty of sleep and relaxation- be well! ...Read more

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?!

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?

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?

Not herpes: Herpes doesn't cause lip twitching. And unless you caught oral herpes at the same time you acquired your genital HSV2 infection, it is unlikely you have oral HSV2. 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

Left side of upper lip has twitched for several mins at a time 3 or 4 times in the past week. Is this likely benign? I'm female, 40, thyroid is fine.

Lip twitching: It can be due to injury, irritation, stress and intake of caffeine & alcohol. In my experience most cases are due to hyperventilation 2/2 stress which could cause transient drop in blood calcium,
My suggestion would be to decrease Caffeine and alcohol intake, try meditation and relaxation. Make sure you Potassium level is ok and your Thyroid function is normal (u said it were).
Good luck. ...Read more

17 y/o female: neck pain, headache (constant), head/neck twitch from side to side & up & down. Don't know what caused this but has occurred for 1 week.

Headache & neck pain: This could be caused by an injury to your neck, especially the muscles, or a tension headache. A tension headache affects the back of the head.

Symptoms and disease: Hi. There is no symptom specific for a disease, and no disease specific to a symptom. Are tour thyroid tests normal on your thyroid hormone replacement dose? If so (and if they've been stable for a few months), your symptoms are due to something else, even though the same symptoms may be seen in untreated hypothyroidism. Make sure your labs are normal and take your thyroid hormone as directed. ...Read more
