Facial Twitching/Numbness from Axiety

Hi All. So I'm an actor and have been having facial twitching and numbness when I get into certain situations. I went to the doctor about that and other symptoms and he told me it was social anxiety and gave me pills. Well the pills work, sort of. But they don't really help me overcome my problem. I could handle all the other symptoms if only I could get rid of the facial twitching and numbness. As an actor, there really isn't anything you can do. I stop myself from taking classes because of it. I don't land alot of work because of it I think. And I'm about to lose my representation because I'm not getting any work. I don't know if this is related so close to my nerves I should go to a neuro doctor of some type or if I could work this problem out with the behavioral therapy treatment for my anxiety. Any help or stories of your own would be appreciated 1000000000000000 times. See I can be funny on here and not have to worry about what you think of me.

Z.

No pills. Did try one once. A beta blocker. But that just makes me feel like I'm good for a little while but it's all the same afterwards....not to mention for my acting it makes me a bit numb to emotion. I'll look that up though. Maybe there is a pill out there that may work. Just not sure. I know this runs in my family though.
