I am about to see a doctor for an issue that I certainly do not understand. Pleaes let me know if you have any ideas.

First I will tell you that I am a 25 year old male, I do not drink alcohol, take drugs, nor take any medications at all. I do not have any history of medical problems nor psychiatric illness but recently I have been experiencing some strange symptoms. For about a year, random parts of my body seem to twitch. My legs, arms, face or neck twitch at least once a day. It is not too externally noticable but I can definitly feel it. This problem concerned me and yesterday I had a really strange occurrence. For a period of two hours, I became very confused and could barely think. I have never taken any illegal drugs but it was what I imagined it would feel like. I could not concentrate on a single thought and was totally out of it. During these two hours, this state of mental confusion was cyclic in nature. I would feel coherant at one moment, then a few minutes later, I was zoned out like zombi. My family was trying to ask me questions and I could barely respond. During these two hours, I was also experiencing a lot of twitching.

This morning I work up and the lower left side of my face is swelled and has been like that all day.

I am sure this could be a lot of things but does anyone have any theories??
