What could calf/eye/arm muscle twitches(non painful)in an 18yr old girl mean? I just finished treatment for amebiasis. Twitching since week 2 of sick.

Many possibilities: Muscle twitches can be caused by a wide variety of things. More common causes are caffeine, stress and nutrient deficiency. If you were having a lot of diarrhea with your amebiasis, you might have also had some nutrient loss. Persistent muscle twitching can also be a symptom of a more serious problem. I recommend you see your doctor for an evaluation. ...Read more

Tearing eye lip closed slightly crooked. Normal neuro physical exam and normal eye exam. Possible Bell's palsy?

Possibly/depends,,,: It's possible that this is Bell's palsy but it depends on how severe your symptoms are and/or if anything else might have contributed to this. It could be caused by an infection flare-up or this could be a viral infection like herpes. Apparently, this can have episodes that come and go and may not even need treatment.
