Back Twitches???

Postby Barb916 on September 21st, 2004, 7:19 pm

I've been have a major relapse of symptoms the past few days. Lots of buzzing, aching and twitching. I've been getting a lot of twitching in my back lately...near my shoulder blades and the back of my ribs. Anyone else twitch here ?

My right arm has been feeling strange lately too. It feels very "sensitive" if that make sense. It's almost like a hyper feeling but in my arm..sounds crazy I know. But that's the only way I can explain it. anyone relate?

Yes I twitch in my back. Not as much there as other places but yes I do. It's usually level with my lungs or mid back. Sometimes but rare on my shoulders.

You are not alone. My legs are killing me this week too.

I've had a least one twitch in the back in that area for sure. Also one that was very persistent in my abdomen just under my right rib. Twitched fairly consistently for like 5 minutes one time.

I've gathered from this forum twitches can happen just about anywhere there is a muscle! Someone can corrent me if I'm wrong.

Oh yeah. They can happen everywhere alright. Just you wait! :oops:

The second oddest place I have had them or at least the feel the oddest there is my eyebrows. I won't say where the first oddest place was.

Yes, I think the upper-body (back, abdomen, ribs) twitches are the most annoying ones!!

I twitch in my back too, a doctor told me once that ALS sufferers have muscle twitches in the back especially...that's why when I twitch in my back I get really upset...it's good for me to hear that it happens to a lot of others as well.

back twitching

Postby Slavin Balen on December 12th, 2004, 2:31 am

Me too! My back twitching and fingers moving from time to time drive me crazy. Now I'm 9+ into twitches saga (including 4 clean EMGs and 10+ good and normal neuro exams). My Neuro also have eyelid twitching. Not only years, even decades.

Barb,

I get twitches all over the place, including my back. Although the twitching is most prevalent in my lower back, I get them below the shoulders as well.

It was the lower the back twitches that really got me worried last winter. They started out as the real thumper type, and when they hit, the muscles wouldn't just twitch once, but a number of times in quick succession. I still get them there now and then, and a sneeze is sure to set one off, every time.

I'm wondering, does anybody else get "sneeze induced" twitches?

Cheers,
Heath

Personally, I think some people get worked up over twitches in new areas for no logical reason. I've never read anything that indicates twitching in a "different" area means something specifically pathological.

This forum is to offer support and to share similiar experiences. Not to knock people down for posting their experience.

I see from your post you've been twitching for 7 YEARS. Some of us are still in the MONTHS time frame and aren't quite at the "acceptance" level you are at. You've had many many years to become "at peace" with your symptoms. I glad you are past all the worry and/or concern regarding twitching.

Also, logic has nothing to do with anxiety or worry. In fact, many people "logically" realize that some of their fears may be unwarrented. However, that does not stop the worry.

In no way was my post a "knock" on people for their experiences. It was merely an observation.
I apologize to those who may have felt my post was a criticism.
Best,
