the constant issue is my face.

It can range througought the day. Every day is different. The pain also spread to my lower back about a week ago and that was really bad yesterday but now it’s gone off

Kindly visit a neurologist so that he can evaluate you for trigeminal neuralgia and rule out Multiple sclerosis. For pain you can take Aleve 500 mg twice a day for the time being for 3-5 days after meals.

Multiple sclerosis is the suspected condition It can cause all these.

Spasming

Also, muscular spasm can be due to multiple sclerosis. This disease involves a number of areas in the body that may not make sense without an MRI brain.
