Twitching of the mouth when talking and smiling. How to sort this?

involuntary twitching and trembling in the mouth area when talking and smiling, also a sign of a hemifacial spasm when I lift my right lip. It s been like this for over a year and has lowered my quality of life. My doctor has not helped me at all. My friend reccomended me to this site, so I hope someone could help me out on what I need to do to get this sorted. Thanks.

This seems to be problem in brain stem, or in facial nerve nuclei and nerve distribution. Plz visit a neurologist and after CT scan and MRI the picture will be cleared. There may be endocrinal problems for that the hormone tests will help.

I have been off prozac for over a year now and after withdrawing from the drug I had symptoms of the above. It's a worry now as it's been like this for too long.
