  • sleep! Usually uncontrollable muscle spasms in the face are due to stress and lack of sleep. Take a hot bubble bath and go to bed early tonight! I had a twitch in my eye for over a month a while back. It only went away when I quit my extremely stressful job and got some good sleep.

  • Stress is a big factor. Is there anything that's causing you extra stress? Try to find some time to relax if possible. (Sometimes hard to do - I know).

  • Sleep! Minimize stress..Decrease caffeine, drink more water. Exercise. Those are just a few things that may help.
