Head injury, muscle tremors near left lip, moving towards right side. Due to nerve damage?

I hit the top ob my head 2 weeks ago...about 1 week ago I started having little muscle tremors near my left lip and now I feel it in my right side. Could that have anything to do with it could I have damaged a nerve or is it more serious that that?? I also read it can be caused by low mag but how do I know if thats the cause. I m so nervous about this

Hi thanks for posting your query in Healtcare Magic
Your problem may or may not be related to mild head injury you described in your question. One thing you forgot to tell us about your age, because even some trivial injury in old age may result in to blood collection in bain (subdural hematoma)that may manifest after many days as neurological symptoms

Head injury can be rule out by doing CT scan brain especially when someone has neurological symptoms after injury and not getting better or worsen over time.

Electrolyte imbalance can also cause this problem specially blood calcium level. This can be easly diagnosed by doing blood investigation to know serum calcium level
I advise you to visit doctor he/she will look for other manifestations of low calcium and also look for other neurological sign that may require bain imaging.
Hope this information may help you. Take Care
