In brief: Muscle twitches
Yes. Anxiety is probably the most common cause of chronic muscle twitches, particularly around the face, head, and neck.
If there is not a progressive, worsening course, and if there is no pain or weakness, then there is no need to consider other conditions like multiple sclerosis, infiltrative disease, or degenerative disease.

In brief: Sarcopenia
Loss of essential muscles will cause twitching - check bia and find out your lean muscle mass vs total body and see whether this is normal.
