Facial spasm or hemifacial spasm is frequent involuntary contraction of facial muscles on one side of face. In 92% of cases, facial spasm starts with twitching in muscle of left eyelid and further progresses down the face over a period of time. If left untreated it gets severe. The condition mostly occurs in middle aged or elderly men and women. Facial spasm is a neuromuscular disorder. Facial spasm treatment is often started with home remedies along with medications but surgery is recommended if the condition gets worse. In home remedies, consumption of caffeine is kept low to help calm muscles. Consumption of vitamin D, magnesium, chamomile and blueberries is often recommended. Various anti-convulsant or muscle relaxant drugs are consumed to prevent twitching e.g. carbamazepine. These drugs can be very effective in early phase of facial spasm treatment. Botulinum toxin (BTX) injection is often used in facial spasm treatment if condition gets worse. Prevalence of facial spasm is reported more in women than men.
