Eyebrow Twitches When I Tap Certain Spot On Side Below Temple

So this is weird, I've asked like everyone in my family if they get this as well and they said they dont. Anyways, If I tap about 1 1/2 inch under my left temple, my left eyebrow will twitch/flutter - same with my right side. It seems if I tap certain spots on head, other spots will flutter/twitch. Is this normal or am I just a freak?

Any twitching when tapping the mid jaw area is showing hyperirritability of the nerves due to not enough calcium. This is called a positive chvostek sign.  This is my slam dunk sign I need more calcium and is more accurate than any lab as it's at a cellular level. Only about 10% of people have this as a normal sign.  My reason for calcium deficiency was both magnesium deficiency and vitamin D deficiency. There are demo's of the chvostek sign on youtube if you want to check it out. Not sure what else it could be other than that.

Did you ever seek a medical opinion for your twitch? I'm experiencing this now.
