Involuntary movements an issue? Have invol. Movements only when i try sleeping. Lip puckering/ twitching. Jaw moving. Muscle twitch. Face twitching.

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

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?!
