Brief Answer:
get vit B12 checked once now.

Detailed Answer:
Hello xxxxxxxxxx,

Vitamin B12 deficiency do present with the twitching sensation in some regions of body.
But my concern in your case is Bell's palsy which is should be ruled out by an ophthalmologist or ENT surgeon.

If every thing is fine then i suggest you to take vitamin injections like renerve or neurobion.

Any query do get back,

Take care.

Hi Doc,

So shall i see a ENT or ophthalmologist. I had explained this to my docter some 4-5 months back where he did ruled out bell pasley but no tests were done, that was when the B12 deficiency came and i took meds for 2 months.

I will go by what you suggest as it keeps coming and going.
