Hello
You need to see a neurologist.
This can be ...benign fasiculations, but these go away.
A mild version of Bell's palsy, which can be treated.
Remenants of an old, small stroke, this also could be treated.
No, you can not get treatment for this one line, you need exam and testing, maybe EEG [rule out seizures], maybe MRI of the brain.
Also
B vitamin levels
Thyroid levels.
Magnesium levels.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
