Good Evening all,
I have been having what I call strange occurrences since mid-April. Starting in April, I began having a difficult time moving from a sitting to standing position. I would say more on the lines of a stiffness/tightness. Once I stand and start walking I look like an old lady (I'm only 36). After some time being upright the stiffness seems to disappear but it happens every time I sit, and the periods of stiffness seem to be getting longer.
Then sometime in May, I started getting a twitch under my right eye which began as an occasional twitch but now it occurs more frequently. A few weeks later, and my left index finger started twitching uncontrollably after holding a button continuously for a few seconds. This now happens after I tense my hand muscles even to make a fist.
Starting within the last two weeks, I have noticed fasciculations in other areas of my body, mainly my left lower cheek and chin, and in the palm of my left hand in between the thumb and middle fingers. Also feel them in my left side and bilateral calf muscles (but these are less frequent).
Then, last week, I was at the hairdressers sitting at the hair-washing station. The chair was a bit high so only the balls of my feet rested on the floor. By the time my hair was spic and span the calf of my left leg quivered for a few minutes making it difficult to walk.
And, tonight, I was out doing my yard duty with the gas powered weed whacker for about 15 minutes. Four hours later, my left arm is still shaking as if it is over-fatigued.
I am really concerned. What should I make of this twitching/shaking and what I think is weakness?
