Sorry here is the other video showing the shaking / trembling etc I experience from semi flexing or stretching

I did ask my Nero and he said it's actually a better sign
He also said strong twitches are much better than slow or invisible ones

Hi Violetmom, hope you've had a good day and sorry to hear the thigh twitch has brought you back to a dark place. These symptoms are such a roller coaster ride that with new changes bring back old fears. My suggestion is keep yourself busy, try not to focus on it, exercise (show yourself how strong you are) and if you feel the anxiety has taken over a trip to the doctor is a good idea. I felt the same way when my thigh was thumping constantly but it did go away. I've had other constant twitches too..my hamstrings, eyebrows and almost everyday the arches of my feet. When I told my neuro about all the types and location of twitches I experience he wasn't concerned about any of that, didn't even care about frequency, how long they lasted. He focused on strength of those muscles. (really good neuro prior director of the ALS clinic)

Veryworried, how video to me looks like a jumpy twitch I get over my whole eyebrow. Very weird looking but like your neuro said harmless.

Ya but my Nero didn't even look at my semi flexed leg
I thought he was going to but didn't

It has turned into 24/7 vibrating which I assume is a fast twitch.. Can't see it:(
