    hi there

    You lucky to be diagnosed so quick. It took 3 GP's and course of antidepresants in my case, but finaly got diagnosed after 2 years. The botox treatment is the best, I can't imagine live withot it. Looking back I was 28 and it started from eye twitching and than the mouth started about the same time as yours. At the end it was so bad I couldn't open my eye and I looked like stroke survival. Get the botox ASAP. O, another thing, before the botox the neurologist gave me some antispasm meds and I ended up in the hospital because my hart couldn't take it, so mind yourself they are little strong. Good luck Rajini, it's not that bad Xx

    Have you tried chiropractic treatment?

    I have had facial spasms for a very long time. I remember my eye twitching back in high school. At the time I did not know what the cause was and I never did get it checked out. It then began to get worse over time (I am now 41). I am thinking that around 12 years ago it progressed from my eye, down to the entire side of my face. I had gotten botox treatments as well but never the perfect treatment.

    What I would like to tell you that I found Chiropractic treatment helped relieve my spasms for a few years.

    I went to see the chiropractor because I was having trouble with my neck and had a pinched nerve that was causing some discomfort in my jaw. He did some adjustments on my neck and lower back. After about 6 or 7 sessions I noticed that my facial spasms were gone.

    It has been a few years now and my spasms have returned somewhat, but I am going back to my chiropractor now to try and fix the issue again. 

    I hope this can help!
