I've have had nerve twitching on the left side of my head for a few weeks now. What could be the cause? It happens randomly.

In brief: Muscle twitching

This sounds like an irritable, superficial nerve or muscle fibers of uncertain etiology.
It commonly occurs in an eyelid. I doubt it is anything serious in view of the absence of other neurological symptoms. Try avoiding caffeine and see your physician if the symptoms persist or worsen.
