    Have you tried drinking lots of water. Dehydration can cause muscle spasms and twitching and anxiety has been linked to dehydration.

      Ya and see that happens people tend to get mixed up in how they feel and don't consume enough water and then their symptoms feel worse. Trust me I did this over the weekend and after I drank a ton of water I felt a million times better. Update me and let me know if this helps.

    Sounds like a pinched nerve. Nothing more and nothing sinister. It will self correct itself.
