Muscle twitching

Hello everyone, I'm a 22 year old male, and for the last few years I've occasionally had small muscle tremors in various places around my body (typically in the arms and legs, though sometimes elsewhere). As soon as I move the muscle at all it stops. I'm about 5'8" and weigh 140 pounds, and I have a pretty regimented exercise routine which I've done for the past 2 or 3 years: I run 3.5 miles one day, then lift weights the next, then repeat (if this seems a bit particular, I figure more information is better than less). In the past these twitchings have concerned me a bit, but today it happened in my right pinky finger which got me really thinking about it. Aside from the twitches I'm in good shape physically. I know that one of my grandfather's brothers developed Parkinson's later on in life (probably late 70's or in his 80's, I know he was in a nursing home), so for some reason the twitching today got me kinda paranoid. Does this sound like early Parkinson's, or could it be something else?

Thanks for reading,

Sponsors Lightbulb

Re: Muscle twitching

I should probably also mention that I never drink or do any drugs aside from smoking a cigar maybe once or twice a year at most.
