inconsistant facial twitch

This started with a twitch in my right eyebrow, it would twitch every ten or fifteen minutes during the day and seemed to increase at night. This lasted for about a week. Then I went seveeral weeks with nothing and then I noticed a dimple or dent right above my forehead on the right side again "my head is clean shaved all the time" and it too would twitch just like my eyebrow. I had never noticed this dimple before the twitching started. This lasted again for about a week and a half. This stopped just as fast as it came, but has happened several times since. It is never both, but my eyebrow or forehead have been twitching off and on for a couple months now. There is no pain other than what feels like eye strain when it is my eyebrow. The twitch while small has been noticed by co-workers and family so I know it is bad enough to be seen from a few feet away. I have kept records of sleep and stress and anything else I can think of and cannot find a pattern. I have four children and a pretty stressfull job, but am not sure if that is enough to cause this. I am a 40 year old healthy :as far as I know" Male. Thanks for any help in advance.
