Facial muscles tremoring/twitching?

Okay so I thought I might ask around and see if anyone else here has this. The muscles in my face tremor or jerk when exerted. For instance if I hold a smile the muscles will look like they are twitching rapidly, though I'm not sure if it's actually twitching or a form of like tremor.

It's so much that if I hold a tone while whistling it will actually warble due to the muscles in my lips tremoring/twitching. Or if I squint I notice the muscles under my right eye doing it rapidly. It's really annoying.

I suggest you request an EEG. I have many similar things going on, including focal temporal-parietal seizures.

I had one done about three years ago for a sleep study, and one done a few years before that. I don't recall them finding anything out of the ordinary and it seems like I was having some of this back then as well.

Thanks it actually does help! I seem to recall having some degree of this at the start which would be nearly 4 years ago now.

I go through phases where it will feel like one of my knees has like a rubber band around it, or some sort of light tension, it's really hard to describe. It comes and goes but when it's on it can last for months. Actually right now I'm in a phase where my left leg is pretty twitchy and my knee has that feeling.

It's weird, when I'm in one of these spells my muscles fatigue much more easily than normal and the twitches will flare up. It's been my left leg twitching a bunch of little fine twitches, my tongue twitching, and the tremoring with any exertion of the facial muscles.
