Pain in two places

Hi everyone. I've been twitching since August 2011. Clean EMG in Oct 2011 and another in March 2012, and my situation is much like everyone else's here. Unfortunately, I'm still dealing with bouts / relapses in anxiety, which I'm trying to manage (coming here can help :).

From day one of this, I've had pain and/or cramping in my left upper arm and right calf. It tends to come and go, although it's been sticking around a lot longer lately. The arm is most often very specific...almost like I just had a shot, and I can put my finger on exactly where it hurts. (Side note, I've also had intermittent finger tip pain on occasion..very strange). Right now it's more widespread though - more down my arm, and more in the upper shoulder and back area. Meanwhile my calf pain is like a cramp that doesn't go away -- and occasionally, I have a sensation like something is wrapped around my calf (when there isn't). Now these two areas are most certainly my twitching hot spots. I twitch in other places, too - but they seem to like these two spots, A LOT. My left shoulder has been twitching for about a week straight now, which is unusual, and I guess what's making my arm hurt more than usual?

I am a very regular exerciser (run 4 miles, 4 times a week, cycling, lifting, swimming etc.) and haven't noticed change in strength, but I do feel this pain nagging at me while I'm working out (and after).

Anyone have symptoms like this - regular pain in two places?

I do. It's what has made me so anxious. I get a sore thumb and hand (right) and a weird tight clicking left knee and twitchy calf.
