Smile Please help (hand movements)

I am 35 years old and have always been in good health but for as long as i can remember i have had a strange problem which i have never come across anywhere or heard about its not a burden or anything just embarassing sometimes when i talk to people. i appear to have some form of involuntary hand movements whenever i do a task with one hand, for example open a present, the other hand will mimmic it slightly or say i wiggle a finger the same finger on the other hand will move slightly this can happen with either hand. any help would be appreciated.

Thanks Paul.

Re: Please help (hand movements)

wow,have you ever had this issue evaluated by a good neurologist?this could be(since you have had this for so very long) an actual 'wiring' type issue within the brain itself or some other brain issue.thats just a bit odd,really.it must be rather freaky to say the least.i have had some really insane things happen due to spinal cord iury and a brain aneurysm so i do know just how freaky some things can be when the nerve centers are involved.i really do think its more past the time to get this looked into by a neurologist,at least to start with.doing some simple MRIs on the brain could show some sort of a problem or even a congenital issue you were actually born with but just were never actually aware of.believe me, i know alot about that.i keep finding things inside my body(and my son too) that we never knew even existed til they started to present with some strage symptoms.you just really don't know what is truely going on within youer own body at times til you actually take a good hard look inside a particular area.trust me on that one.

i would sit down and speak with your primary about obtaining that referral to a neuro to start and possibly having him(your primary) send you for that initial MRI with contrast(contrast just highlights certain areas much more clearly than plain MRI can),just to get the ball rolling since it can take a bit to actually get that initial appt with any actual speacialist in most cases.but something isn't "right' somewhere up there.its just a matter of finding that source.i do wish you luck and hope they can identify the problem soon for you.please let me know what you find out,K?

Thanks for the info inot sure about seeing a doctor it has never caused me any problems and it doesnt disable me in anyway and quite often i dont know its occuring i must stress my hand doesnt flail all over the place, it is mostly slight movement.

Re: Please help (hand movements)

Hi Paul,
First thing that came to my mind, was to go see a Neurologist, get a MRI scan. It does for sure sound yr Nervous system. I actually have the same advice as FB here. One thing i will add is that when you do get yr scan done. Keep copies of your results for future reference. In case you need a second opinion for anything.
I have MS. I know how crazy it must be when you want to do one thing, But yr body does another. NOT to say this is what you have. One thing I've learnt. You don't always have to be in horrible pain for something to be going on with you. Good luck to you. I'll be checking in to see how you go.

Re: Please help (hand movements)

GG is very right,get copies of all and any test results and your medical records updated and in your possession.anytime you have some level of ongoing condition,you just really do need to keep your own set of your own medical records.i had to start doing this after my spinal cord injury.having all your own testing results and keeping these in some sort of expandable folder that you can bring to all doc appts really comes in handy for me.sometimes I am the only one who actually has a copy of some test result since the previous docs office who referred me there "forgot" to forward the info.saves alot of time and trouble for me.but you really do need this at least looked into and evaluated by a good neuro since this is not a normal type of movement.you just need to find the cause,thats all.at least you will know why.it obviously concerned you enough to post the question here,ya know?just get it looked into.it could be something very simple that is just causing some wrong signals to be sent or some other resolvable issue.please let us know what you find out,K?
