Anyone get this?

Posted , 6 users are following.

So last night I was lying on the sofa and my knee started pulsing, didn't hurt but I could see it thumping. It's doing it again tonight. I'm not panicking as I am doing so well with my anxiety. It's just wierd though. Doesn't hurt just beats and I can see it. Any advice?

    Well done Kirsty,

    Especially for doing really well with your Anxiety, I no it can be hard, but stay positive & focused, I wouldn't worry at all about your Knee Pulsating, its Just the nerves in your knee that make it do that hun, Like if you,ve had a run or did excessive exercise, or even nothing at all it can make certain parts of your body pulsate, Its Completely Normal :-)

    Hope this helps!! x

    I get it too in my quad and tricep usually when im dehydrated, bananas help the potassium helps stop the twitching.

    Of all the symptoms I suffered due to anxiety,the pulse feeling is the one I hated the most. I twitched from head to toe, I still get the odd one every now and then,but I try to ignore them and they go after a day or so. Never,and I say never google pulsing or twitching,I had myself convinced I had ALS. That was 9 years ago,I now run 21 miles a week and lift weights 4 days a week,not bad for someone who was convinced they'd be dead by the time they reached 25 (I was 24 at the time).

    Hi there, pulsating muscles are as a result of nerve end activities and perfectly normal, you generally find them increasing when tired. It's just normal electrical activity in the brain firing off the nerves and causing twitching. N
