Twitching symptoms

I am curious if others with ES have experienced a lot of twitching. I have been doing some trigger point massaging for the last couple of months but since I’ve been taking muscle relaxers, the muscles in my face have relaxed so much that I can feel tiny knots (trigger points) along my eyebrows, cheekbones, and by the ear. When I press at the top of my cheek bone, my eyebrow visibly twitches. And this referred twitching also happens with other muscles but not as dramatically.

From what I understand, the eyebrow twitching might have to do with me hitting a nerve around my cheekbone. Could this be an ES symptom? I still don’t understand too much about how ES affects various nerves other than at a high level (i.e., irritation of the vagus nerve and cranial nerves).

Another strange symptom I have is in the inner ear. I have practiced meditation for years. When I am meditating on sounds around me, sometimes it is like something in my inner ears shift or relax. Not sure if that could be eagle’s related or not.

Thanks in advance

The facial nerve and the trigeminal nerves are both affected commonly by ES, here’s some diagrams so you can see the nerves’ path & see if it could be causing issues:

Quite similar pathways!

Oh wow. These are almost exactly where a lot of my pain and related symptoms run along. Thank you Jules!
