Anxiety can it really be causing this
Thank you for your post and I'm sorry to hear about what you're going through. It can be the hardest thing dealing with anxiety about health issues and so much harder when anxiety is giving you health issues! Whether that's twitches, pains or aches. It can get to be a little bit of a vicious cycle because we get anxiety > symptoms > more anxiety > symptoms and on and on.
You did mention your GP and your medication, do you have a counsellor as well? This can be really helpful in teaching you some tools to cope and helping to remind you that this is not anxiety.
I also encourage you to have a look through the anxiety threads and jump in there (if you haven't already) so you can chat with others who are in the same boat too. If you search "facial" up the top it should show you some other posts of other people with anxiety with facial twitches as well.
Hope this helps
