However, one of his followers said that this problem was an allergic reaction caused by eating something like seafood or nuts. But is it so? The incident that happened with Mo Vlogs points towards 'Hemifacial Spasm', a disease of spasm in the facial muscles.

What is hemifacial spasm?

Hemifacial spasm is a neuromuscular disorder in which the muscles on one side of the face repeatedly spasm or tighten. These spasms are involuntary, meaning they happen on their own and cannot be stopped. This disorder can occur in both men and women, but it is more commonly found in middle-aged or elderly women.

Symptoms of hemifacial spasm

* Recurrent spasms or twitching of the muscles on one side of the face

* The spasms may worsen when blinking, smiling, or talking

* Pain in the face, although this may not always be the case.

Causes of Hemifacial Spasm

The exact cause of hemifacial spasm is not yet known. However, in most cases, it is believed that it is caused by the constant pressure of a blood vessel on the facial nerve. Apart from this, injuries or tumors on the face can also cause this condition.

Treatment of Hemifacial Spasm

Hemifacial spasms can be treated in several ways, which are decided based on the severity of the disease and the condition of the patient.

Botulinum toxin injection (Botox): This is the most common treatment. In this, botulinum toxin is injected into the affected muscles of the face, which weakens the activity of the muscles and reduces spasms.

Microvascular decompression surgery: In this surgery, the blood vessels putting pressure on the facial nerve are removed.

Medicines: Some medicines can also help in reducing the symptoms of hemifacial spasms.
