I have not been diagnosed for MS, but it runs in my family (mother, aunt, uncles). I will hopefully see a nuero in a few months to get an MRI. I do have many MS symptoms though. One of the symptoms has really bothered me & gave me the suspicion that I may have MS. I have muscle twitching as well as some muscle jerking. I twitch from head to toe. I'm not kidding...I twitch anywhere from the top of my head, face, eyelids, lips, neck, arms, hand, fingers, stomach, back, butt, tights, knees, calves, feet, bottom of feet, toes, etc. You name the body part...I bet I have experienced twitching. I have hundreds in a day’s time. It usually only lasts a few seconds & then goes away, but I have had some that will last a few minutes. Sometimes I'll have an area that won't quit twitching. Once I had my upper-right side of my back twitch for over 24 hours non-stop. Talk about annoying!!! Right now I'm having an issue with my left knee. I'm not having problems with it twitching non-stop, but it comes & goes & has lasted for 3 days now. They have gotten really strong & you can see the twitching on the surface of my skin...its freaky looking!!! I'm so glad that I don't have an entire thigh or something else twitch all at one time. I think I would freak out! The twitching isn't at all painful, but rather annoying. I also have muscle jerking. There are times when my fingers, hand, arm, leg, feet & even my tongue have jerked. I know the tongue sounds weird.
It's usually just a slight jerk, nothing to extreme. It bothers me a lot. I know that some minor twitching is normal like in the eyelids from time to time, but to have your entire body twitch isn't. I can't wait to see a nuero & find out the culprit of this horrible muscle twitching & jerking.
I can understand what you are going through. I wish you the best of luck finding out what is wrong with you. Take care!
