Muscle twitches?

Postby cloverly » Tue Aug 09, 2011 9:26 am

Hi all......I have been having muscle twitches for about the last yr but they seem to be getting more frequent (everyday)
When i say muscle twitches its literally the muscle twitching and clearly visible under the skin, my daughter says it looks like i have gremlins under my skin trying to get out!! :crazy:
I went to my local Fibro group yesterday and when i asked ppl if they suffered it they said no. I just put it down to fibro....like most things, fibro gets the blame for it.
I get "jerks" but that it totally different to the twitching x

:wave: Cloverly,
I must admit I do get muscle twitches and leg / arm jerks.. I often get twitches in my bottom lip of all places :roll: (look a lot like Elivs :lol: ).
However I wouldn't assume that everything is FM, might be worth mentioning to GP. I have to go to Neuro for symptoms my GP isn't sure about so always worth checking. :wink: :wink:
We do have some weird and wonderful things don't we :crazy: :crazy:
Take care and have a good day

Hi Laura, Sharon is right get it checked out, the twitches sound like muscle spasms where the muscle gets really tight then sort of flicks back, do you get any lumps and bumps along with the twitching :?: :?: :?: :?: :?: :?:

No lumps or bumps, just looks like i have a bug or something jumping up and down under my skin.
I went to see my GP today and he's taken bloods to check different levels, calcium, magnesium etc.
He says it could all be linked to fibro, he did say that muscle twitches appear in ppl with motor nurone (spelling wrong) but flicked my muscles and said it was highly unlikely it was that....thank god for that!
It happens when i rest normally and it affects my arms, legs, butt cheeks. My arm was twitching yesterday and it was making my finger flick up and down....very weird feeling.

My Gp stopped my tramadol as it made my muscle jerks far worse. Are you on Tramadol?

Love dolly xx
Sending you love and light
