I've had alsorts going on. hip pain sharp stabbing pain in my bum and groin on left side. my arms feel weak and now and them they feel like they are burning. I've had a few twitches in other places but mainly in calfs. Am so worried I've had mri scan for m.s. due to other symptoms but it was clear. Am waiting to see neurologist but because of the cronnavirus I've got to wait. I've goggled muscle twitching and it says could be als mnd. which scares me to death. Am 49. Am not sure if it's connected to per menopause. has anyone else felt them. I've been worried sick. doctor has given me amitriptyline but it not done nothing.

    Please don't worry I had ALL those muscle twitching even ran up and down throughout my entire body, and legs jerking it all lasted for MONTHS much better now BUT not all gone, still comes and goes. I'm post meno now and I still get the weak arms and legs feeling , even legs go numb! My husband died from ALS and I know the differences in the ALS twitches and the ones we experience. ALS twitches are like VERY VERY rapid and NON stop NO pauses in between! DO NOT GOOGLE remember google is not a doctor , only a search engine! This will calm down some but I had it for months on in on twitching and jerking AND now post and still have the weak arms and legs and numbness! With ALS I can help you there because I took care of my husband who died from it , ask any questions you like concerning it , BUT rest assure you are fine and its NOT ALS 😃 Hugs!

      You mean never stop like there throughout the day mine was too, but thats not ALS look at the calf of your legs or video it, now with ALS twitching they will be VERY VERY RAPID and no pause like a constant very very very fast heatbeat hard to explain to you . . Twitching can be all day but its little pauses.

    Hello ladies..I can truly relate..I get the twitches and they are really bad when I have anxiety...but I keep anxiety so every now and then I will get a nerve twitch somewhere and of course I have been googling and making anxiety even worser..with everything going on with the coronavirus and going through menopause it is a struggle..😪🙏

    hello! I'm so sorry we are all going through this I have had these same symptoms for a year now. and they started in the legs and now move around in other parts . ver They are sporadic some days worst than others. . I also feel inner tremors and burning, crawling sensations. Mri clear and two of the best neurologists, assured me it wasn't neurological. Probably due to anxiety Still they persist. i try to exercice and drink alot. I had one medical doctor actually say hormonal changes can cause these symptoms. Also check another group called muscle twitching on this forum . Many women are going through the same thing. Hope this helps.
