Hello Arg, The one sided twitching may Hemifacial spasm. Hemifacial spasm results in involuntary contraction of the facial muscles limited to one side of the face. The eyelids are involved, and upturning of the corner of the mouth is observed. There may be facial twitching during periods of sleep. If left untreated, the twitching may worsen and extend to other facial muscles.You should consult a neurophysician and get the treatment done.
