Fluttering feeling just above the left year

From the last week onward i am getting a fluttering feeling just above my left ear. It may last for few minutes and comes in an alternative interval of 4-5 hours. Sometimes it comes in a continues interval. Also i feel a stiffness / benumb feeling in my left cheek. I am 28 years of old male and i don't have any other medical issues. The only thing i noticed is my resting pulse is about 90-95 range. And the Pressure is 105-70. I undergo a complete blood routine checkup and TMT & Echo cardiogram test for chest. In those nothing found suspicious. Is this a normal condition ? Or is there anything to fear about? Please help me.

If the fluttering feeling is in your scalp region, it is probably coming from your muscle ( temporalis). People get benign twitches in muscles all over their bodies and they are almost always nothing to worry about. With the numb/stiff feeling in your cheek I wonder if you are clenching your teeth at night and this is a form of TMJ Syndrome. Wearing a "night guard" when you sleep can solve the problem. The other possibility is that they are part of a migraine phenomenon. I would raise these questions with your doctor and see what he says. Have you seen a neurologist? Good Luck.
After your stroke you may be experiencing a new normal, but remember what George Eliot said- It is never too late to be what you might have been. You still can achieve new goals.

I blood pressure is normal. Only having issues with the heart pulse. I consulted a cardiologist, and test TMT & Echo cardiogram test etc. And found no issue. He only advice me to have a regular exercise. My only concern is with this "Twitching" feeling in head.

Thanks for the replay doctor. I was afraid of thinking its the symptom of stroke. That's why i was little nervous. I didn't consulted the neurologist yet. But surely will do this by the end of this week. Thank you.
