For as long as I can remember, even back to my childhood years maybe starting at 10 (when my anxiety started), I started having these muscle twitches/spasms.
The perfect way to describe them is a sense of vibration or bubbles under my skin. If I look at the area, I can see it pulsing/twitching. Happens for a few seconds and then goes away
When I was 21 (when my anxiety got worse) I asked my doctor about it. He asked me how long have I had them and I said since I was little. He never said it was bad. He just said I'm fine
Now a year later my anxiety is even worse, and so are the spasms. I asked my new doctor and she said they could and are probably normal. I began to think I had MS or a neurological disease. I later had a scare of having a brain tumor and got an MRI done. Doctor said there was no sign of tumor or disease. So I thought I was clear of the MS diagnosis.
my anxiety is still bad, practically even worse now and I'm still getting these twitches in my legs, thighs, sometimes arms and even on my hand where my thumb is at.
I've read that it's a symptom of anxiety but I want to see if anyone else gets these, now I'm terrified I could possibly have MS, Parkinson's or ALS.
I've had bloodwork done and my doctor says all is normal, so I'm not sure if it's a deficiency of anything.
Please any advice will help. I feel the bubbles under my skin as I'm typing this! I don't want to be terrified anymore
