So, I'm one in the community who experiences what I call " systemic muscle twitching". I can say that at a young age of 12, My first experience with it begin as an upper eye lid twitch. Years down the line ( i'm 29) I've consecutively experienced rampant body twitching in every possible muscle group capable of twitching. From an eyelid to a back muscle, with occasional 1-3 day off time when my muscles seem to be in a " solid state", then it resumes. Week after week. Day in and out,usually.
My diet is fairly good, As I eat from organic sources as much as possible, but even when caught in the conventional maze of aisles, I only stick to the produce and meats sections. 60/40 veges fruit/ meat. I also drink a green "smoothie" containing an assortment of fruits and veges as to rest assured that I've gotten a good deal of nutrients. On the diet end and nutrition end, i'd say i'm fine but perhaps i'm lacking Magnesium and potassium? Na, I supplement them and get'em from whole food sources so that isn't the cause of my twitching,
My sleep habits have 'been off. I used to sleep late at times (1:00 am) wake up, and go to work at 7 am. In deciding if this was part the cause I've altered my sleep habits to hit the sack by 11:30 pm
I DO, live a relatively sedentary life, and smoke cannabis here and there to mitigate the sensations of the twitching, and my exercise since youth has drastically declined, so there may be a connection there. Some times I think maybe the twitching is indicative of my muscles 'wasting away' due to this but still, not sure if twitching would even result from that.
I hope to live a long life, a twitch free one at that. This is an issue that has been going on for over a decade now, consecutively. Just about- non stop, light, medium, hard and powerful muscle jerks, twitches, spasms, in randomized, localized spots all over my body. my body. If there's a muscle there, it's twitched and will twitch again. And if it hasn't twitched yet i'm sure its on the itinerary. An area on my back has been twitching for several days so far, same spot. VERY ANNOYING. next week will be a different spot.. I really don't want to live the rest of my life with this systemic issue.
I really wish there was more concrete research done on this. The many 'causes' of muscle twitching and the 'resolves' are nothing more than baseline generalizations.
Those suffering, what have you done to mitigate your muscle fasiculations?
due to the consistency and longetivity of twitches, I've been entertaining the thought that This could be due to a nuerological disorder.
