Muscle jerking and fasiculations

Postby Karenmg on June 18th, 2014, 10:02 pm

Anyone experience twitches in bicep, tricep that almost moves your arm ? My left arm twitches on and off 24/7. Sometimes the twitch is like a fast jerk where if I'm leaning on arm it almost jumps. One day had an episode where my right bicep was twitching uncontrollably for a few hours. You could see the muscle jerk. Took magnesium. It stopped, but it was quite scary watching the muscle shake. Is this normal with bfs? No other issues. Just twitchin and jumping. Any helpful,input would be appreciated. Saw neuro last month who doesn't seem concerned. Wondering about a second opinion.

If the neuro isn't concerned, neither should you be.

I imagine pretty common. My toes and fingers often move from the fasciculations. Sometimes the twitching is so persistent and strong it keeps my toes moving constantly for a day or so. Pretty annoying when it happens, but I know it will eventually settle down.
