I am sorry about your stress you are under at this point
how old are you?
there is a chance it could have been a small stroke or a TIA or transient ischemic attack.
any way you can decrease the stress?
Hi Dr. David. I am 60years old
you could have had a mild stroke or a TIA or transient ischemic attack before.
anyway you can decrease the stress in your life?
you should see your GP doctor and get a full neurological exam.
and possibly a CT or MRI scan of your brain as well to be sure.
is it urgent or should I leave it till monday
I think you can leave it to monday since your symptoms only lasted for 30 seconds.
and have resolved now
stress can cause you to tense up facial muscles and cause increase tension in muscles and nerves.
my face muscles didn't feel tense, the left side of my face was throbbing?
that sounds like benign fasiculations
which are benign twitching of nerves and muscles
which can happen with excessive anxiety and stress and with lack of sleep.
so that's a good thing right, nothing to worry about?
nothing to worry about
it could also be from low potassium or low magnesium levels
so you can try to get more potassium or magnesium into your system.
