Patients with functional neurological symptoms can have symptoms affecting the face. These are much more common than was thought even 10 or 15 years ago although in fact they have been recognised for over a century. The commonest type of functional facial symptom is spasm of the muscles around one eye or in the lower half of the face.
This can be very unnerving no pun intended for some individuals. Not only can a twitching lip be noticeable to someone you are interacting with, but it can cause a lot of worry and anxiety. Lip twitching is actually quite common, and I consulted with Dr. In rare cases, seizures can cause twitching on half of the face as well.
A twitching lip — when your lip shakes or trembles involuntarily — can be annoying and uncomfortable. It can also be the sign of a larger medical problem. Your lip twitches may be muscle spasms associated with something as simple as drinking too much coffee or a potassium deficiency.
