Brief Answer:
Could be hemifacial spasm.

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for posting your query.

I am Dr Sudhir Kumar, Neurologist, and I would try my best to help you.

I have noted your clinical details. Based on this, the most likely diagnosis is hemifacial spasm with blepharospasm. In this condition, there is involuntary twitching of eyelid and facial muscles.

The best treatment is with botox injection, which may need to be repeated after 3-6 months.

I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.

Wishing you good health,
