Random Twitching!!!

Posted , 7 users are following.

Good morning ladies, wow anyone have this random twitching everywhere on the body that they deal with? I'm starting to get monthly patterns of the twitching, at first maybe wasn't as bad , but now it seems to be constant when it happens, and it will be in different parts of body , today its my left shoulder, and its constant. So does this happen to any of you ladies, and does anything help it? Does it come and go every month for you? Also it was with for almost 2 weeks last month, then disappeared for a couple weeks, and today its back..

    Hi Gypsy! YUP! I get this falling asleep sometimes. my head will twitch, or my mouth will slam shut suddenly. Scares me awake! Then, my heart will race. Random twitches too like my calf...even a butt cheek! Must be something to do with changes in the hormones running through the blood stream. I used to get a hand tremor too...that has not shown up in awhile. probably will now though!

      Hi Lou, its so weird seems lots of woman get this at bedtime, and all though I wasn't getting mine at bedtime I got it upon waking this morning as well as last month.. I get them random everywhere and it doesn't let up. Certainly makes sense with all the migraines, and I didn't have the migraine today but did have left temple ice pick type pain and was just headachy ,, so over this gezz.. Hope all went well with the specialist.. I know youve been waiting a while.. Can't wait to hear all about it..

      hello! Mine happen more often in the a.m. my husbands alarm goes off at 5...wakes me up...I try to get back to sleep to be up for 7...it is always drifting sleep and I think that is why it happens to me. I think because we all have sleep issues...we never really get that true R.E.M. sleep!

    oh! and my tongue too sometimes. convinced I had parkinsons, but no! I think it is because we get migraines too! our nervous system is built differently! I will post a discussion today on my visit to the vestibular neuro yesterday.

    I was having some random muscle twitches last week, but only when I was falling asleep. Some were like a short quick muscle spasm (like, my foot would flex really quickly or my leg would jerk) and sometimes is was that more repetitive twitch, mostly in my arm/shoulder. I think they happen more when I'm overtired, and I certainly haven't been sleeping well, so I think that was part of it.

      Hi tebrown, I don't get the jerking, but definitely get the twitching spasm like episodes that are constant and all over the body, I don't get why all this twitching, it just doesn't make any sense to me, lots of crazy weird symptoms.. Thanks for your reply..

    Hi Gypsy!

    I have been getting twitches, but only on my head! Sometimes it's the temple, other times it's the lip or eye.
