Forearm twitching

Posted , 3 users are following.

hi everyone , last year I started feeling forearm twitching. 

At first I thought it's some problem with nerves , feel that every day.

Because continues so long I'm scare , that I've got Parkinson's ! 

Is it just another anxiety symptom ? It's really hard for me to accept everything what is coming with that disorder . 

I wonder if anybody else is having that symptom or it's just my crazy mind ? 

Thanks Donna

    Try a massage on your neck and back and see if it calms. If it continues to twitch then go see a nurologist or orthopedic specialist and rule out anything sinister or nerve impingement. If its a surface twitch most  likely a spasm.

    i think there are tons and tons of symptoms that can pop up. Stress and anxiety are the root cause of honestly 90 percent of whats out there. So of course it cwn be weird symptom but of course it can pass as well. 

    I would suggest a magnessium flake foot soak. Calms the nerves, literally calms them for the mind theres meditation or mindfulness and many nail soas do massages for a very reasonable ethey do ten minute back massages. Feels good, also be sure nine of your medications have nything like this or iliar as a effect.

    twitching can hapoen anywhere in the bidynit wants to. Which stink but that seems to br the truth for many, and im oretty sure they can inject botox or something if it is the sa,e spot all the time. If you can visually see it record it so when you fontonthendoctor you can show them. Then they also kmow to out the injection if needed. Thats just a thought for you,

    I feel you are still young, how old are you ?

    Parkinsons generally appears when middle aged or later, so I feel it is part of your Anxiety. If you  are keen on sports or some other activity that would have streached a muscle or tendon it could be that. If you cannot think of anything try bathing the arm in bath or shower with a hot water direct force shower head on the area that is twitching or sore.

    Because of your Anxiety you need to have your Anxiety put to rest as you could be unhappy and think the worse. Get checked over at your Doctors and see how it goes

      I'm in my fifties ! 

      The reason I started thinking the worst , because my father has that disease .  Then the genetics could play bad role in it . Donna

     Donna, I have had twitching in my arms , legs .    Muscular twitching can definitely be an anxiety symptoms! Believe me I've had it so many times I can't count. Plus I have had numerous other symptoms of anxiety since my 20s. I am in my 50s now and really don't worry when a symptom pops up anymore. I have had numerous testing done and it's all normal.  When I take the focus off of myself, get active, get social and eat healthy, those symptoms actually disappear. It's amazing!Our minds are very powerful and they tend to go to the negative if we allow it.  

    THE WORST Thing we can do is sit around and think and think. It makes us more anxious and increase symptoms.  

     I wasted 30 years of my life worrying that I had MS just because my aunt had it and I was getting some muscle twitching. Please please don't waste years of your life doing this to yourself. Go get a check  upat your doctors office and when the test come out normal you can be relieved  and move on to a happy and peaceful life! 

     so don't Google symptoms because it will just scare you and it may not even pertain to you.   

     remember this ....FEAR  stands for false evidence appearing real! Fear and all of the what if's we think about are based on non-reality! 

     also, as a nurse I know that chronic negative thinking can actually make negative changes in the brain, whereas positive thinking actually causes healthy changes in the brain. Be a fighter for yourself! 

     if you're having a hard time, I highly recommend seeing a counselor who has the tools to help you overcome this. They see this every day. Also listen to free audio meditations on YouTube related to anxiety and stress and negative thinking .  You will be just fine!  😁
