Hallo Candice
It is caused by a muscle spasm of the face. Try a muscle relaxant like Norflex 1 three times a day (if you are not allergic to it and may use it - read package insert first) and a warm face cloth on the area to relax the muscle

Hi,

I get that quite often - it is apparently caused by stress and will usually go after a good nights sleep. A muscle relaxant before bed also helps. If you are stressed all the time, it could be aggravating it, so that it carries on for longer. I find something like Biral helps when you are feeling under pressure and anxious.
