Ok thanks. It's very worrying.
Doctor: Medicaldoctor, Doctor replied 11 months ago

Okay so this tingling and twitching sensation is not specific for facial nerve pathology.

It is often seen due to idiopathic reasons or could be simply due to stress.

These symptoms often resolve on their own within a few days without any treatment.

Facial nerve problems may result in facial muscle paralysis,weakness, or twitching of the face. Dryness of the eye or the mouth, alteration of taste on the affected side, or even excessive tearing or salivation can be seen as well.

I would suggest you to wait for a couple of days as most likely these symptoms would resolve but if they do not improve or get worse then you can consult your doctor and he/she would perform certain tests to examine the functioning of facial nerve.

Please feel free to ask questions.

I hope this helps

Thank you

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
