Muscle Fasciculations

Posted , 2 users are following.

Really hoping someone has had something similar and found the cause and cure...

I had the Covid booster mid January and by the last week of February, the muscle twitching started all over my body. Not sure if it's related, but thought I would add that piece of information. I've tried stopping all supplements and also changed some of my meds, where I read that they were possible causes of twitching. Propranalol and Nortriptyline, ie.

Upon seeing my concierge doctor, we decided to run a multitude of tests (MRIs EMGs, labs, etc. ) and thankfully ruled out all neuromuscular related diseases and cancers. The big-name viruses have also turned out negative. Due to a micronutrient test ION, my doctor now has me on numerous supplements to optimize my metabolic and overall health. still not helping for the twitching though.

I'd like to look into bacteria possibilities, but was wondering if anyone has had something similar.

Eager for any feedback!!!

    I stopped using nortriptyline recently and had covid vac in Dec 2021.

    Similar Issue happened to me too after i took 1 dose of generic Wellbutrin.

    I spent many hours researching this and there's so many different variables but from what I see it's how the nerves communicate using and the biochemistry involved.

    In one forum here they mention using alpha lipoic acid to assist in repairing nerves.

    Research alpha lipoic acid.

    it's good to have a recliner keep your spine in alignment.

    when I was at my friend using a recliner helped reduce the twitching. and her comfort helped.

    i am taking am EMG this week.

    wash out new clothing. get fresh air. moderate excercise.
