The Cause Of Twitching On The Left Face?
Hi Marini, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
You can feel a twitch because the muscles experience small, repetitive contractions. This condition can occur due to several possibilities:
Physical or emotional stress
Lack of sleep and rest
Nutritional problems, such as a lack of potassium, calcium, vitamin D, or vitamin B
Disorders of facial innervation, for example due to Bell's Palsy, Multiple Sclerosis
Emphasis on the facial nerve for example due to a tumor
There is a history of trauma or injury to the facial innervation
Pressure of blood vessels on facial nerves
Idiopathic (no known cause)
If indeed the twitching occurs continuously and is very disturbing, you should check with a neurologist. The doctor can perform a physical examination and perform other supporting examinations that can help make a diagnosis. Investigations that can be suggested include MRI and EMG (electromyogram) examinations.
In the meantime, some things you can do include reduce stress, get enough rest and sleep, eat foods with complete and balanced nutrition, especially eating foods that are high in B vitamins, potassium and calcium.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
