I know this is long, but I really need some advice.
I’ll give a bit of background information. I’m a 23 year old female and at the age of 15 I started to develop muscle twitching all over my body and very intense twitching in both eyelids in both eyes. I was told that the eyelid twitch was due to eye strain and invested in glasses and the eye twitching stopped. However, the body twitching has never stopped fully. When I turned 18 I was diagnosed with blepharitis and again experienced intense twitching in both eyes (no one seemed to know the cause). It was so bad that I could not attend school for some period of time. Then, the next year I developed Bell’s Palsy on the left side of my face, which I took steroids for. I had hemi-facial twitching on the left side of my face and sometimes in my right eye as the nerve recovered. There is no trace of it anymore. By the time I hit 20, other than the occasional twitch everything was fine (I could get a twitch anywhere, from my eyelid to my nose and mouth). Additionally, I had an MRI scan at a neuro clinic and everything came back clear.
But, in December last year I developed a twitch under my right eye, I thought it was due to stress, but then I also developed a twitch in my right eyebrow and my upper lip. It was nothing too serious but it was annoying. Then I noticed that the twitch would move around. The corner of my mouth would twitch one day and then the centre the next, the same happened with my eyelids. My hearing in my left ear seems off as if it’s blocked, my tongue sometimes twitches and my cheek has started to twitch as well (the cheek twitch can create a dull ache). The twitching in my eyelid has completely stopped. However, some days the twitching everywhere else more or less stops as well and other days I have to dunk my head in ice cold water to get it under control. I also still get twitching on the opposite side of my face and the rest of my body and have been diagnosed with iron deficient anaemia.
Any advice and replies will be greatly appreciated.
