Anxiety, TMJ and hypocalcemia can cause such symptoms. Local causes including temporomandibular joint disorders need to be examined for. Calcium and vitamin d levels should be done. Focal neurological deficits should be looked for including cranial nerve examination. Treatment would depend upon the cause
