    Generally this can be quite normal, depending on age.

    Talk to your GP it sounds like Anxiety so I would put your mind at rest with a chat at the Surgery

    I had twitches everywhere, was one of my main symptoms - eyelids, cheeks, forehead, arms, legs, bum, and especially calves. It's a very common symptom of anxiety and I'd say your twitching is probably down to that.

    Very normal for anxiety! I get random twitches all over my body. For like a week straight my left breast would twitch like toward my armpit area. I get twitches in my leg back everywhere lol. Try adding some more magnesium to your diet (they also sell magnesium drinks) which can help with muscle spasms

      The scariest part is the breast one! It feels like a really strong heart beat, or like my heart is going to jump out of my chest! But i know its just twitching! I was taking magnesium supplements for 2 months, now that i dont take them i feel like my twiching got worse

      I think i will go back to taking the magnesium! Hope it all goes away soon!

      Did you ever had the feeling of raindrops on your skin? I dont know how to describe it.. Its just a weird sensation

      Hi Michelle, I couldn't help but see how helpful you are with this topic. I am having a bad attack of muscle twitching right now. In my legs, stomach and chest. It feels like my heart is fluttering uncontrollably. My chest hurts as well as my left side rib area. I muscles are extremely weak and my calf muscles have been hurting for 3 or 4 days now. I wonder if you have experienced all of these symptoms as part of anxiety? I'm so frightened right now.
