Muscle twitching and jerks

Edited , 46 users are following.

Hi. I have read a couple of places that other people experience this with peri. Just wondering if anyone has a clue as to what causes it. It was bad for about a week and then got better. Now it's back. Ugh. Such a worrisome symptom. Please again tell me I am not alone on this one!

    No you're definitely not the only one with that. I get it in my upper chest on left side. I get it in the arm off to the shoulder on left side. I get it in the stomach and legs. It's random and can be felt anywhere.

      im sorry to hear that I have been taking magnesium for about two months I also take turmeric and black pepper capsules again  for about two months. My manager recommended the turmeric as she has rheumatoid arthritis and swears by it (I started taking it as I have broken vertebrae resting on my nerve  I can't have surgery as I have a morbid fear of being put to sleep ) any way I am convinced both has helped

      both 2chr I took the magnesium a few days before because of the jerking legs then the turmeric and black pepper because nothing appeared to calm my pain even nerve blockers although I still suffer the pain isn't as bad with the jerking that has appeared to stop only getting it rarely so for me it seems to work

    Hi, there, muscle twitching and jerking can also be caused by too much or too little Vitamin B-12.  Hope this helps.

    Maybe you could try taking your B vitamin supplement every other day?

      You know what is strange is that I stopped my B a couple of days ago because my urine looked really dark when I gave a sample at the doctors office last week. I just wanted to watch it without the Bs in it. I wonder if that is what started them back up.
