Hi Saranya,
If your diagnosis of facial spasm is confirmed,then consult a neuro surgeon for a second opinion and management.

Facial spasms can be controlled either by oral medications / Botox injections/ Surgical intervention( if it is due to Facialnerve compression).

Although you have to take regular medications or repeat Botox injections at regular intervals( may be once every 3 mths),under your neurosurgeons guidance it will temporarily relieve your problem .

Surgical intervention will be finalized only by your neurologist/ neurosurgeon after monitoring your response to oral drugs and Botox injections.

Every problem has a solution. So Never Ever give up and have positive thoughts.
Consult a neurosurgeon in your area for confirmation of your diagnosis and early intervention.Take care :-).
