Tightness, pulling sensation left side of face

Hi, I have been having a tight, pulling sensation in the left side of my face for about 10 days. It is under my eye and extends into my cheek and occasionally going to my chin. I am under a lot of stress (my husband is deployed for 8 months). About 3 days ago I woke up with an extra crease in my left eyelid and my eye feels like there is something in it. My eye also feels heavier. I am so stressed about this but hesitate to go to the ER as it has been going on for a while so I don't think it is a stroke. I am very worried about this and cry very easily. Has anyone ever had these symptoms? Xanax does help but does not take all the symptoms away.

You might try supplementing with magnesium citrate, responsible for relaxing the muscles.  It might help.
