Hi Syed,

Thank you for posting your question here, I will try to answer it to the best of my abilities.

The condition you suffer from is called hemifacial spasm, it happens to a lot of men and women around the world.
The main treatment for it is by drug therapy but it isnt always successful.
As such there is a surgery for it called microvascular decompression, it is performed by a neuro surgeon. As such I recommend you contact the nearest hospital that has a neuro surgeon and discuss your options with him.

I hope this helped.
