Shaky and jittery muscles

Posted , 16 users are following.

Hi all,

I'm a 29 y.o male and for the past few months I have had very shaky muscles, like when I move my head up and down my neck muscles move in a jittery unsmooth pattern. The same happens when I lift my arms and slowly drop them (shoulder muscles shake) or when I bend over to pick something up (stomach and leg muscles shake). I also have sudden jerky-like twitches in a lot of places like fingers, shoulders and legs. All this has recently started affecting my breathing muscles so now I have "broken" inhales and exhales like when you are super stressed expect that I am not. It's getting pretty scary and so far EMG and MRI have been negative. Anyone else here experiencing these kind of muscular issues?
