Thank you for writing in.

Twitching of left facial,ear and eye muscle are due to the following

1) left hemifacial spasm ( involunatary movement of L) half of face due to dystonia)

2) Facial tics

3) focal seizure type involving face (fits with out loss od consciousness)

Need to consult neurologist for clinical examination and diagnosis.

MRI brain with CISS sequence for L) facial nerve and EEG will help to confirm the diagnosis

Thank you for writing back,

Treatment options are
1) Hemifacial spasm respond to botulinium toxin injection locally to muscle

2) Facial tics respond to stress reduction program, clonidine and resperidone

3) Focal seizure requires antiepielptic drugs ( oxecarbamazepine, sodium valproate, levetirecetam and many)
