Hi Indiguy,

This type of twitching in the temporal area can be only because of some muscular twitiching or can be because of blood vessels. If this is just for few times and only for few days than it would not be a problem.
Sometime it also happens that during stress and anxiety this sort of things happen and this can be associated with the stress condition in your case.

In the mean time I would suggest you that you continue with your BP medication and keep an eye on your BP always and if this problem pursists for long time than have a consultation with your doctor to make it sure that there is not some sort of temporal arterial problem.

Thanks and take care

From your description, you are probably having stress induced twitching and it is not vitamin deficiency. Electrolyte disorder is possible but to determine that your daughter will need to run serum electrolytes test to determine if there is any.
The twitching is also most likely be isolated and nothing is particularly responsible for it.
You can start by avoiding stressful activities and take sometime to have a good rest.
You can visit your doctor for better evaluation.

Kind regards and hope this helps
