It is a condition, characterized by frequent involuntary contractions of facial muscles on one side of the face. These contractions are also called tics. Compression of the facial nerve can commonly result in hemi facial spasm. When the nerve is damaged, compressed or irritated in some way it can produce symptoms of hemi facial spasm.
It may appear in one set of muscles and gradually progress to other groups. The condition is not painful, but can cause discomfort. The patient may feel uncomfortable, as it is socially embarrassing.
