Hemifacial spasm is a condition that affects half of your face. It usually starts with a twitching around one eye. It may gradually involve your mouth also. There are different types of treatment.
Hemifacial spasm is a condition in which the muscles contract in tics or twitches on one side of the face, usually the left. People do not have control over these spasms, and very often they continue even during sleep. Hemifacial spasm is usually not painful and not considered a health hazard. In advanced cases, however, the eyes may remain squeezed shut for long enough to become dangerous when driving, for example.
A job interview or first date is a really inconvenient time for your left eyelid to flutter without your permission. Yet there it goes. Fatigue, sleep deprivation, stress, eye strain, too much coffee or alcohol and also certain stimulants like those in some decongestants can all contribute to eyelid twitches and other facial twitches, too. Your best bet at resolving a facial twitch is a good dose of … patience.
