Why does cheek twitch?

Related to stress

Cheek
The small muscles in either upper or lower eyelids may sometimes twitch. This is referred to as benign blepharospasm. Most often this is due to stress or stimulants like caffeine or nicotine. Reducing intake of stimulants or trying to reduce stress may help. These are typically self-limited.

Anxiety symptoms

Anxiety can cause many physical symptoms, including muscular twitches. Often this is around the eyes, but other parts of the face can be affected also.

Does brain tumour cause eye and cheek twitching?

Yes, It may.

Epilepsia partialis continua (EPC) also should be ruled out. You have to see the Neurologist ASAP and have an EEG done.

Right eye has been on/off twitching for days. Now my right cheek/eye area is numb ?

Let's analyze

Head-cheek
The eye twitching could be a benign condition called "myokymia", but now you are describing trigeminal distribution numbness on same side which does raise questions of brainstem, base of brain process. Would suggest seeing your doctor and considering MRI of brain, and possibly spinal fluid analysis. Best to get to the bottom of this ASAP

Myokymia

Eyelid twitching, or myokymia, is a benign but annoying condition. Reducing your stress and reducing caffeine intake make help.

Dr. Martin Raff answered:

Why does the apple of my left cheek twitch every time I blink? This has been ongoing for 5+ months. I'm 23. Thanks!

Tourette's syndrome?

Cheek
This may be onset of Tourette's Syndrome. Check with a neurologist. In this "disease" tics involving movement (motor tics) — often facial tics, such as blinking — usually begin before vocal tics do. But the spectrum of tics that people experience is diverse, and there's no typical case.

Why is my left eye twitching for so long? should i be concerned that my left cheek and left side of my mouth is also twitching?

Facial spasm

Eyelid_twitching
Eyelid twitching is common, and is usually related to stress, fatigue, consumption of stimulants like caffeine, and local eye irritation. Facial twitching, where the cheek and mouth are also twitching, may be "hemifacial spasm", which is more serious. Talk to your medical doctor or neurologist about this possibility.

Hi, I have a friend of mine with a twitching right cheek. What causes it? Can cold air blowing from an A/C to the face be a cause? Thanks.

Perhaps these?

Head-cheek
The A/C has nothing to do with this. There may be hemifacial spasm, facial myokymia, a facial tic, a habitual twitch, a prior Bell's palsy with aberrant nerve regrowth causing facial dyskinesia. Best way to find out, see a neurologist or an ENT specialist, and get opinion.

Just started running again and every day now my left butt cheek twitches,no pain, last around 5 seconds each time. Why could this be happening?

Mm fasiculations

Pain
You may have a simple muscle fasiculation, which is common. They are the "twitches" that can occur in your muscles as described by you. They are generally benign and can occur in overused muscles, possible minor fluctuations in electrolytes (such as Potassium), of when a nerve is irritated. They usually go away on their own, or massaging the area can help. Try stretching before and hydrating.
