Facial Muscle Twitching

My legs have been extremely heavy for the past couple of days. I have put it down to the humid weather causing my symptoms to flare up. This morning I have woken with a really annoying twitch in my facial cheek.

I started Gabapentin a couple of weeks ago so I hope it is not down to them.

Anyone else get these twitches?

Thanks for your help as always.

I have twitches in my cheek, not all the time but I do get them. I’m not on any medication.

Thanks Minnie-mouse. I really appreciate it.

Thanks for your reply. Perhaps it is just one of those things. It’s hard to ignore though.

I’d still mention it to your nurse tho just in case. I’ve learnt to ignore it or I find myself brushing it away with my hand. I know you can’t get rid of it by brushing it away, but its a distraction if nothing else & it works for me :slight_smile:

Thanks Minnie-mouse.

I remember that my first symptom 12 years ago was my calf muscle twitching so I am sure it is an MS thing. I’ve got a neuro appt in a week so will mention it then.
