Help, please answer! left arch is smaller than the right

Postby nrwtwitcher on April 28th, 2014, 12:29 pm

Hi, my left arch of my foot is smaller than the right one. The muscle at the side from the big toe, I am twitching since a few month in this area, also in other areas. Sometimes my big toe moves to the side. I really hope that there is anyone who can tell me something about this. Thank you.

so is mine. no worries. our body is not symmetrical . my left forearm is also smaller then my right. with a dent! :) that one really freaked me out. took awhile to get over it. i bet one of your calves is smaller (and both smaller in the morning if you are measuring, which i hope you are not), one bicep is smaller........I use to measure everything 3x a day. Get off that viscious cycle

my toes and my fingers will move and lock in place. remember you have tiny muscles in there that dont take much to move. its kind of a twich/cramp rolled into one. very very common. my hands shake also and will get frozen sometimes. no worries

You are find my friend. just good ol BFS.

The more you twitch the better you are. :)

also a muscle can twitch by a nerve and spring that baby like a piano wire.

Exactly same here. I noticed it very early on when I started taking inventory, about the same time that I noticed my left calf was smaller than the right. They were like that then, and are still like that over 9 years later. Asymmetries are normal. And my arches never stopped twitching 24x7.

Cheers,
Bill

Everything on my left side is smaller than my right...thankfully I noticed this many years ago. If I had just noticed it during these recent fears I would have been a mess.

All I can say is "ditto!" But, it hasn't changed in a few months so I think I'm good.

DD, Shawn, wjjw, leaflea: Thanks Thanks a lot! It is so frightening for me to see this difference. I am not sure if I had this before. The worst twitching is also exact in this smaller area... but it is really good to read, that you also have differences in that area. The more often I look the bigger seams the difference.

That has been said and exp by at least a 1000 people around here including myself! Trust me you are more tuned in to your body then EVER before. Unless you stop you will notice everything. Pulls, pushes, twitches, ticks, heart rate, pain, fatigue, hotspots, wetspot feelings, ...............The mind is a powerful powerful thing. You must gain control Immediately or it will gain control of you.


The worst twitching is also exact in this smaller area...


for now maybe. until it moves somewhere else. It doesnt matter. Big twitch, small twitch, rumbling, rolling, popping, crackling.........its all BFS

The more often I look the bigger seams the difference.


That statement sums up the beast that is anxiety! keep saying that and quit looking. Look away. Do something else with your time like live my friend. You have recognized it now rememdy it.

That was exactly why I noticed the size difference in my left calf. I was looking closely at it because it was twitching more than the right, and also getting cramp-like aching. I was not happy when I noticed the size difference, but reasoned that it must have always been like that because it was just as strong as the right. You'll be fine. Stop looking at your arches. :)

Bill

My wife tells me off everytime i sit watching my arm or my hand or my legs! to be honest i think that these dents have always been there, its only now that we notice them because we think its related to somthing more sinister, im convinced my right wrist is smaller than my left yet there is no strength difference between the 2, well im right handed so there is more balance etc but as im having troubles with right side i keep thinking its somthing! im fairly new to this but having read loads of posts im potentially experiencing what 99% of people on here are goign through!

im not going tell you to stop watching or looking at yourself because i cant stop at the mo but i know once i stop and start living again im sure i and you will be fine :D

I get the most amount of twitching on my smaller side as well. Means nothing.

Thank you all. I am so thankful for your answers and hopeful words! This forum helps me a lot. My arches are really very visible different. And it makes me scareful that the twitching areas fall asleep quite often. I hope the best. The muscles of my left foot are also thinner and that foot also cramps a lot. I do not understand this, 7 months ago I had nothing... and than it started and got more and more worse over the time.

This post is a bit older, but I will answer to it though, because with me it is the opposite. My right foot arche is much smaller, but my hotspot is the left one. For me that is much more complicate to explain, because as far as I learned, twiching makes the muscles more slim. Then why it is in my case just the other way around. And I am really sure, that both of my foot arches looked different 10 month ago...I am really sure, because my twitching have begun there and in the first months I thought...well the arches look still ok. So if you twitch where it is smaller, it sounds more reasonable to me...
