aniexty/twitching

For the past few days I have had twitches in the night upon sleeping. I cannot sleep due to this. They range from the back of my head to my arms, legs, chest. I also have had diarreha, nevous stomach, some chest pains, feel anxious all the time. Everytime I eat something i haver to run to the bathroom. Also the first day my left arm felt as if my funny bone was touched, kinda weird and tingly. I'm kinda worried (as usual). I used to get headaches often, had ana MRI and it cam back normal.
Any suggestions on what this may be?
I have OCD and am a very anxious person most times

Re: aniexty/twitching

I get twitches all the time. Are you talking about muscle spasms, or the kind of twitches you get in your eye lids?
Either way, I wouldn't be too concerned about it. Twitches are another sign of anxiety, and like you, I have OCD too. I get the little eye lid twitches constantly, and they can be anywhere. And my boyfriend has crazy muscle spasms in his sleep. So, you are not alone.

Re: aniexty/twitching

My ex used to twitch while they slept a lot also. They seemed to be okay, otherwise.

I twitch a lot also. Leg muscles spasms mostly. I'm not aware if I do it when I'm sleeping ...

As for tingling; I've been getting tingling in my feet lately. MD and Therapist say it's the anxiety. I'm a little skeptical right now -- but I always am when I get new symptoms. Hopefully, you and I are both just fine.
