Question: Hi,

I had an ulcer(probably due to heat) and occasional twiching of facial muscle near left cheek bone.

I kinda over-trained at gym too a couple of days.

So, could it be possible that facial muscle twiching is due to general fatigue or tiredness?
Or could there be any other cause?

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I assume the twitching you had are not a recurring / persisting symptom that occurs everyday. If it is so, it needs to be evaluated by a neurologist.

Occasional and random episodes of muscle fiber twitching are usually due to benign reasons. And probably it is to do with gym training (over-training) - dehydration, general fatigue and tiredness. It should stop in a day or two. I encourage you to drink plenty of fluids.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need clarifications.

Regards
