Hi there!

Well, without a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of her symptoms. Ticks/ muscle contractions may be associated with a few neuro-degenerative conditions or a few neurological/ muscular/ metabolic causes, strokes etc. I would suggest getting this evaluated by a neurologist, preferably at a university/ teaching hospital for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
