my bottom lip keeps twitching

it's starting to freak me out. It wont stop and its involuntary. I had a healthy breakfast and drank some earl gray tea so nothing crazy. I normally drink coffee so its not a caffeine thing..

  • Are you particularly stressed? Sometimes that will do it.

  • Stress, fatigue, excess caffeine or a nutritional deficiency, such as low potassium can all trigger lip twitches. In general, the twitching is harmless, but if it continues for more than a few days or you develop additonal symptoms, then you should see a doctor.

  • Try eating some Tums. I know it sounds crazy, but sometimes you will twitch if your body is a little low on calcium. Often times if you take a couple of Tums, it will get rid of it since Tums contain calcium!
