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

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. Your risk of ALS without other symptoms is extremely low especially at your young age. Benign fasciculations are far more common. ...Read more
