No kidding. It just started and it is the weirdest thing.
It goes nicely with the neck cramps.
Does any one else have this, and what makes it go away?
Thanks
Stacey

Stacey, I'm one year post treatment and have the neck problems but nothing with my lips yet. Hope this isn't something I have to look forward to.

Interested to hear if others are having this problem also.

I did get a shaky lower jaw today. Got my first post-radiation dental scaling and cleaning today. I was unsure about my gumline along the back molars, on both sides of my upper jaw. Gumline is sore and has receded somewhat, away from the roots of my crowned back molars. I was afraid the scaling was going to be really painful, so I asked the hygenist to apply a topical numbing product to it first. Worked like a charm. No pain at all, but I was so tense that my lower jaw was all shaky.

Do you pronounce that "eye"-gor? Sorry. Young Frankenstein... Must be Halloween sneaking up on me.

Jim's lips do twitch and he didn't have that pre-treatment. I don't know what could cause it other than some disturbed nerves in that area.

Not really obvious to anyone but me.

Look it up. I am getting an MRI today to validate scar tissue affecting the trigeminal nerve. Causes the tension in the neck, numbness to the jaw (in my case, there are actually three nerves that can be affected), tongue and lips.

My ENT wants to try steroid injections to see if that will help. I will keep you posted.

You might be able to include this within the long list of symptoms that we are considering as song titles or a musical group name.....

Group Name = "The Twitchy Lips"

Song = "Everytime that I see you, I get Twitchy Lips"

Best,
JG

Sounds like we need some input from our resident musicians Denis, Joe or Mick (sorry forgot you other musicans at the moment)...

We need to find that old post of similar topic and include these an come up with a CSN H&N "Song of Symptoms", LOL.....

Can't forget the sweet ringing in the ears and just holding your hand makes my hands go numb!

For some reason, every time I read twitchy lips I get the image of Clint Eastwood saying, "go ahead, make my day.".

My lip doesn't twitch but under it does. Down by my jawline where my tumor was attached to my jaw. It's annoying. The other thing I notice is that side is getting more droopy. Boo. Also I am getting a weird dimple in my chin I never had. Don't like. The twitching on my left side insnt that bad. I get really bad eye twitches when stressed. I mean bad. The last year I was managing McDs it was unbearable.
