New type of twitch

Postby Pandy on April 2nd, 2014, 3:47 am

Hi all,

I have been twicthing for almost three years now, I have seen a number of neurologists but have no diagnosis of this day. According to the doctors there is no weakness even if I feel really weak in some parts of my body. My twitches are usually bodywide and random and very visible. I have had them everywhere, even inside my mouth, but they have come and gone.

Now I have a new type of twitch wich is located in my left biceps. The twitch is constant since 4 weeks and is very very fine. Since its twitching 24/7 I also feel exhausted in my left arm. My fear is that this fine twicth is something else then my "other twitches" which are very visible and strong. And the fact that the twitching does not stop scares me. I havent seen a neurologist in appr. one year now, I did a emg almost three years ago and a spinal tap last summer.

Pandy,

I have the EXACT same twitch going on in my left bicep right now but its been 8 weeks. I've also been twitching for 3 years, all over, including my tongue, roof of mouth, etc. On average, I feel about 20-30 "pops" per minute somewhere on my body with my calves and feet going nonstop. My bicep started up 8 weeks ago. For the first 4 weeks, it was thumping away and I could easily feel it. But for the past 4 weeks, its a very fine, constant twitch. Here's a video of it that I took 3 weeks ago. It looks exactly the same today. Has not stopped for one second....

Thats Crazy, my biceps-twitch looks almost exactly like that. Not as frequent but very similar!

Do you get tired in that arm/biceps?

I haven't noticed any muscle fatigue in my arms, no, although I know that is quite common with BFS. But the twitches in my arms have been driving me crazy. My bicep is constant, but on top of that, I get lots of "pops" and "machine gun" twitches all over my arms. If I stretch my arms up over my head for example, it will set off just about every muscle from my shoulder to my hand. My right bicep has been twitching a lot too, but not constant like my left. -Matt

Hi Panfdy I had something similar but on my triceps, and I found out that the nerve which was not feeling happy was located in my shoulder, and I also found out that it happened because I used to sleep with my head over that arm. Solution: I put some cream to stop inflamation and stopped sleeping that way. I am not sure this will help you, but I hope it does.

Cheers.

Same here on the left side. and now even the right groin. What an amazing (bothersome...) thumping. Constant. When you wake up with all the firework ongoing at night, going back to sleep is an impossible task.
