Fibromyalgia leg twitching

Common Questions and Answers about Fibromyalgia leg twitching


Avatar f tn I'm new here and I haven't had a fibromyalgia diagnosis, but I have had muscle twitching all over (mostly in my legs) and that has died down quite a bit, but I've have tired muscles and I have been so tired. I get tender spots that hurt for no reason to the touch. This past Saturday I went dancing and almost didn't make it through the first song, my legs started to hurt so bad. I woke up the next morning and it felt like someone had beat my legs with a baseball bat.
Avatar m tn I am thinking my twitching might be due to bfs, fibromyalgia, anxiety, or a combination of the three. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I almost can't function regularly due to my als fear.
Avatar n tn (2nd posting sorry I posted in the wrong spot at first) I don't know if I have fibromyalgia so maybe you can all offer some advice. I am 36 year old female. About 8 weeks ago I noticed my left arm was difficult to drive with and it really struck me as beign strange. It felt heavy. I thought it felt weak but looking back 'heavy' is a more accurate term. I went to my dr. who sent me to a neuro. By the time I saw the neuro I was conviced that I had ALS. Convinced.
Avatar n tn Has anyone had muscle twitching while trying to get their levels normal on synthroid????
Avatar n tn It's not the cramps that worry me anymore. Its the leg spams and twitching.Unlike restless leg syndrome where the problem happens at bed time, my legs twitch/spam 24 hrs a day.You can see it happening.I also notice when i go to bed at night my body jerks alot esp right when i fall asleep.I have even woke myself up QUITE a few times because of this.My fiancee' tells me how i jerk alot in my sleep and even kick him.It seems to get worse as i get older.
Avatar n tn The first of Septmber I noticed a twitch in the muscle just abovemy right knee. It is present any time I am not moving. After 3 days I also had twitching in my right calf. I saw my primary physician who did not detect any muscular weakness, but seemed surprised at the reflex response in my right knee and mentioned he could refer me to a neurologist if it bothered me but would do nothing for now. After another week of this he did refer me on and I await an appointment in late Oct.
1524559 tn?1291414496 Dear Doctor - I have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia for approximately 10 years now. I have suffered from severe chest pains, tender points, pain up my right side of my neck, right jaw, fingers, my toes feel like they will snap off sometimes, the edge of chairs hurt the back of my legs and now I have been waking up at night with severe leg cramps & toe cramps.
Avatar n tn MRI brain -normal, MRI = c-spine c5/6 herniation supposed not touching anything important, c-spine x-rays - mild atlantoaxial instability, lumbar - l5/s1 surgery good results - (pain numbness in leg is different leg), MRA - normal, evoke potentials normal, EMG upper -for carpul tunnel - normal. I sleep great. If I lay down on my back/no pillow and don't move I don't have sensations. When I make the slightest movement, I get a sensation somewhere - could be almost anywhere.
Avatar f tn In addition, I have many of its symptoms such as IBS, restless leg syndrome, depression, chronic pain, leg spasms, limb twitching and involuntary moment, flu like symptoms daily, osteoporosis, scoliosis, degenerative disc disease involving 6 bulging disc, bone spurs down my spine, and stenosis. It is very difficult but I guess it could always be worse. I had to stop working a year and a half ago.
Avatar f tn I'm 31 and after 6 long years of chronic problems unexplained I have finally been diagnoised with Fibromyalgia and Lymphdema. Sorry about spelling. Anyway I was wondering if anyone out there has had either one and if so what kind of treatment may have work for you. They say both conditions are chronic and there is no known cure for either.
Avatar n tn Some good days some not. Occassionally I would also have days of random twitching in my arms and legs.(Bad one day and then gone for a week.) I went back to my internest who ran a metabolic blood workup, ANA, and SLE test (no thyroid test). All came up normal except my cholesterol and triglycerides were high (runs in my family). He told me to come back in 6 months. Since the problem did not go away I went back to the neurologist.
Avatar f tn the muscle twitching could be from restless leg syndrome. it takes less adrenaline than is characteristic of fibro to initiate it.
Avatar n tn Do you think the hand and foot symptoms are related? Would Fibromyalgia make sense? I though that was mainly muscular leg and back pain and affected primarily women. Your advice would be greatly appreciated. Scott Dear Scott, Fibromyalgia is a disorder that typically presents after a period of inactivity, a muscle of group of muscles become tender and painful. The neck and sholders are the most frequent sites. Sometimes firm tender zones can be palpated within the muscle.
Avatar n tn Heh, turned out that my fibromyalgia was due to Lyme Disease. Although I don't have restless leg syndrome, many others on my fibromyalgia support board did. Later I found out that many people with Lyme have it too. Many researchers think that fibromyalgia may be caused by tick borne infection. An MRI of my brain showed several "Unidentified Bright Spots" which are apparently like scars, and might be caused by migraines. (They're not sure.
Avatar f tn Also having bad ovary pain and back pain that goes down my leg...not sure if all are related, pressure headaches a couple times a week, 'Out of it' feeling when cooking or cleaning. Blood tests came back normal...not really sure what to think. Any dr know what it could be or what I should do? Anyone have the same symptoms? Thanks!
Avatar n tn There is no family history but it did make me very anxious which only fueled the twitching. After a while though I got over the anxiety but the twitching hasn't stopped. Now I am feeling twitching that is not just annoying but painful at times. Worst of all it happens in the wierdest places like past couple of weeks the muscle just below my ribs have been twitching so violently that it even wakes me up from sleep.
Avatar m tn My symptoms include unilateral weakness, twitching and cramps. the weakness started in the lfet leg and now is in left hand and arm. I also have tremor in left hand and arm. Last night half of my head went numb and left arm all the way to left pinky finger was numb and stiff. This sounds very different form other people who are experiencing fibro. I would just like some reassurance. I am terrified it is ALS/MND or another horrible neurological illness.
Avatar f tn To help you better understand what is going on I will give you a timeline of my symptoms. Mid november - leg went entirely numb for one night - could still control movements, just couldn't feel sensations Week of March 12th, 2012 - unusual twitches all over legs after workouts/3mile walks. Ignored. Week of March 19th - noticed muscle twitching, limb jerks at night only Week of March 26th - twiches all over body. face, feet, legs, butt, vagina, mouth, hands, ribs, chest, abs.
Avatar f tn It's hard to explain. I've always thought of it as twitching. It happens all the time, but not constantly. My head makes jerking movements, not shaking. It happens as much as 10 diff times in a min or I can go for up to an hour with none. I have various other diseases, including Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalgia.
Avatar n tn It doesn't always twitch, but it seems to do so for an hour or two every other day -- usually around the time I wake up. I noticed this about a month ago. Is this twitching in a localized area a cause for concern? You cannot see the twitch, but I can feel it if I put my finger on it. Also, for a few years I have also had issues with my ring and pinky fingers on both hands "falling asleep" at night, and tingling during the day.
Avatar n tn Muscle twitching can be related to "Restless Leg Syndrome" which tends to go with fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Has your doc. tested you for tender points? The twitching is annoying. Try Klonopin at night and a muscle relaxer like Baclofen 3 x day. You might find relief. Also, since I have both of these diseases and myofascial pain syndrome I use a TENS Unit and often times I put it on my legs to stop the twitching.
Avatar n tn Rheumatologists are experts in joint and muscle problems, and treat arthritis, some autoimmune conditions, various musculoskeletal pain disorders, fibromyalgia and tendonitis. Have you been evaluated for fibromyalgia? Some practitioners actually believe that fibromyalgia is actually a manifestation of hypothyroidism. Fibromyalgia is a syndrome that features specific tender points in the body, with widespread weakness and fatigue. You might look into alternative therapies.
Avatar n tn I'm scheduled for another EMG next week, but in the meantime the fatigue and twitching have mostly subsided. In the past week, coinciding with a reduction in the amount of twitching I'm suffering, I've noticed that my joints are cracking and popping at an alarmingly consistent level. Ankles, knees, elbows, wrists, shoulders, you name it, they crack. For a 26 year old, this all seems increasingly weird.
937617 tn?1314215791 I was finally diagnosed with Fibromyalgia after over 30 years of pain, problems, etc. I have recently started to learn to drive again after a break of about 5 years (my symptoms were much more under control then), but I was unsure of what I should tell the D.V.L.A ? I checked with my g.p. and he said I should probably tell them what I have. I have upon advice downloaded & printed a Neurological Form & I have sent this back to them.
Avatar n tn For the past 8 months I have been experiencing muscle twitching throughout my whole body while sleeping. It is becoming very disruptive to my sleeping as well as to my partners. I have been diagnosed with a seizure disorder and am taking 200 mg of Topomax per day. My recent blood test have shown a low B-6 level so I started taking supplements. Also, I am waiting for the results of an overnight eeg. Is there anything that can be done to control these twitchings?
Avatar f tn Out of blue tho the calf I had drop foot in started twitching and thingling and athrophy came on again quick. Got lumbar MRI no herniations. Just had the nerve test on all 4 limbs , only came back with a pinched ulnar nerve and some nerve damage from herniations. We are waiting on results on blood work and cervical and thoracic MRI. The Nuro dr saw that I'm very strong but sees I have athrophy and asked all the normal questions.
Avatar n tn Hi, About three weeks ago my eye started twitching multiple times per day. Then about two weeks later my arms, neck, legs, hands, pretty much everywhere started twitching. It's not all the time, but happens every day and they are random. My arm seems to twitch the most. . I feel like I have nerve pain in my hands and arms. if i got outside when it is hot I get an electric feeling in my arms and legs. I also have a lot of anxiety over it. I went to the dr.
