Lately I have been experiencing a lot of muscle twitching. It happens at any time of the day. I usually notice it more when resting or standing still. I feel the muscle twitching all over my body. I even feel it in some really weird places like the bottom of my feet or even my butt. It only lasts a few seconds and isn't painful, although it is really annoying. I usually notice more than 24 twitches a day. It's probably more, itís hard to tell.
I have also been experiencing jerking of my arms and legs. This only occurs when I'm resting. I have notice an increase in the jerking of the limbs. I feel terrible because I feel as if I have no control over these jerks. I am thankful though that it only happens when I'm resting.
I have noticed an increase in the twitching and jerking. I'm wondering what is causing it and if it is something I should be worried about. I have already looked into the medications I'm taking and none of them have muscle twitching or jerking as a side effect. I'm without insurance right now and would like some advice from anyone who may know what this may be caused by. I feel as if this is abnormal. I have asked around to find out if this is normal. I do understand that some muscle twitching is normal (like in the eyes, etc). But what I'm experiencing is a lot and canít possibly be normal.
I also have other symptoms that could be or not be related. I have also been experiencing dizziness and fatigue. I get dizzy from standing up from a sitting or laying down position. I also feel really tired and irritable by 2-3pm. I get plenty of sleep (more than 8 hours), so I know this isn't causing my fatigue. I have also been experiencing chest pain. This has been an issue for some time now. I thought it was due to stress and/or anxiety. I'm on medications to help with my anxiety so the chest pain can't possibly be anxiety related. I do believe I have arrhythmias. I have seen a cardiologist in the past concerning my chest pain. They concluded that it was anxiety related and to continue taking and/or increasing my meds (which Iíve done both). Like I said, I don't know if these other symptoms have anything to do with my muscle twitching or jerking.
I appreciate any advice or any information anyone could give me. I hope to figure out the cause and get this under control. Thank you!!!
