Calves and arches twitchers please respond

Postby marconi on September 21st, 2012, 3:43 am

Hi to all friends with similar problems :)

I have many problems with twitching all over my body, but i am most concerned about my 24/7 twitching in my calves and arches in both legs. Sometimes arches twitches are also moving my toe, it look like toe twitching.

These twitches are small, I can see them any time i want, but i never feel them. It looks like something is moving under my skin. They are more visible in good light/day light.

This is not everything, my right leg is less muscular than left, although the right side is my dominant side. And I have some pain only in the left leg form feet to the knee. Weird feeling/pain i can not describe. I also see some dents in my arches.

All other twittches on other body parts are strong enough to feel them.

How does your twittches looks like? I remember that I read somewhere that **s twitches are small and not noticeable.

Thanks!
Have a nice day!

I have constant twitches in my left inner arch for 12 months. I would say that is more than 5 milion twitches. I think if that would be bad, I would have some problem with foot. I have pain and soreness and nerve pain, but I can still go to my tiptoes... After 5 milion twitches there many on same spots.

Marconi,
The calves and arches may be the most common twitch we have because of how much we use our legs. If you run a search for "sunlight" on here, you will find that there are a lot of people (myself included) who have posted about twitches they can barely feel but definitely see if the light is right. At about 4PM every day, the sun comes through my window just right and I can see twitches in my legs and arms that I had no idea were even there. They are nothing to be concerned about. -Matt
Over 10 billion twitches since May 2011.

Hi,
24/7 calves and feet twitching...?
Yep, absolutely sounds like my late Self.
Although more and more parts of my body seem to join the party.

Calves and arches are my main twitchspots. They look like firecrackers going off under the skin. I see them and feel (most of) them, and they are pretty much a round-the-clock feature.

Don't worry about one leg being more muscular than the other: this is completely normal. Pain sometimes accompanies twitching, or follows it, and that too is entirely normal.

As for dents, well the more we inspect our bodies, the more we will find. Human beings are full of dents: it's the way we were created, so don't sweat it!

Hey marconi,

I think my symptoms perfectly fit yours, really everything..
i remember that i read a post from darr a long time ago where he statet that calf and feet twitching is the most common form of benign twitching, it doesn´t only happen in people with bfs, it happens in a lot of people without bfs also. The most of them don´t even know that they have it..;) Maybe darr could post that again, i think it was a study.

Do you work sitting all day long? I have found that we are more suceptible to anoy some nerves by having bad postures... I have improved a lot!!!! not sure what has it been, maybe the pro biotics, maybe that I dont give a sh*t about this anymore, os maybe that I have changed some bad habits like sitting correctly at office and avoid some postures while sleeping, and streching my cheast to avoid extra pressure in my spine (contractures in the neck area because of tight chest).

I have been using a small device called "backjoy" and I think it has helped a lot in keeping the posture while sitting, give it a try if you feel like it.

But the most important thing is to clam down, go for a massage, go for yoga, make some sports and learn how to relax your mind. I think that is the best advice I can give.
