For three days straight recently, I experienced an intermittent, involuntary twitching of my thumb. It was much worse at night time when I was trying to sleep. Prior to this, I had gone outside for a very brief period on an extremely cold day with gloves that were not warm enough. Could the exposure to extreme cold have caused this?
Seven years ago I had a post viral neuropathy which lasted for two years. I since recovered and only have occasional symptoms which seem to come when I am under stress or fighting a bug.
I am just curious to know if any of you have this symptom.
My thumb twitches too lately, which is my left thumb. It has not done this before. If I let it rest it just keeps twitching, which other fingers do the same. Is this something wrong with me. I am taking lexapro too.
Could this be the cause? Is there exercises to help this get better?
Try to exercise and enjoy Life as much as possible!
I have also recently had the twitching thumb and forefinger on my left hand. It lasted for a week and then went away. It has only been a week and it has not returned.
I have read it could be stress or illness induced but that would be a hard call for me since I have both!
i will join the list here, I too get episodes of thumb twitching, I think its kinda neat and it doesnt worry me in the least. tends to ne when I lay down at night or am resting, then the thumb involuntarily twitches. There is a name for this its sounds like fascilations but thats deff the wrong spelling, it also benign, so not serious.
