    A lot of people suffer from this when they are tired or stressed.  If it persists then it's worth getting it checked with your doctor, but it will probably go away as fast as it came.  Hemifacial spasm is an ongoing condition which is progressive, but it is quite rare and so hopefully not something that you need to worry about.

      Hi again Ranjit.  It's certainly worth taking a magnesium supplement to see if it helps your twitches.  If your twitches turn out to be Hemifacial Spasm (which they probably won't!) then medicines and supplements are unlikely to help because it is caused by something which is like an electrical fault (nerves and arteries touching one another).  Some people try turmeric paste and say that it helps them with twitches.

      I think it's quite possible to have non-HFS type twitches for a while, particularly if you are tired or stressed.  But, if it goes on then perhaps you can get an MRI scan to put your mind at rest.  Twitches can be caused by a lot of different things, but from what I've read, most little eye twitches are harmless and will go away.  If they don't go away then best to seek help from your doctor.

      Personally I would wait a while and see if it disappears Ranjit.  Your doctor will not have a magic cure for you unfortunately and if he offers you medicines I would be very wary of taking them, particularly if this does turn out to be HFS - HFS does not respond to medication.  If it goes on for a few weeks then see you doctor and ask if you can have an MRI scan to check on the cause and to rule out causes other than HFS.

      So pleased to hear that the spasms are not so bad in the last few days Ranjit.  It is possible to develop Hemifacial Spasm at your age but it's quite rare for this to happen I believe.  I'm sorry that I don't know much about magnesium and potassium supplements.  It may be best to try to eat foods which contain these vitamins and minerals.  I know that bananas are an excellent source of potassium.  Dark leafy green vegetables, nuts and dried fruits are very good for magnesium.  Hope this helps.  I don't really know much about all of this but believe what I have written to be true.

    Ranjit,  Roseann is 100% right and I think the advice she has given is really helpful, try not to worry too much.  All the best.
