Tingling and muscle twitching

Posted , 5 users are following.

I have been having tingling in my left leg from the knee down to the ankle and muscle twitches all over the body.  It started with the tingling and then that somewhat stopped, and then the muscle twitching began.  After a 4-5 days of the muscle twitching, it mostly stopped and the tingling began again for 3 days.  Now, the tingling is mostly gone and the muscle twitching has returned.  My blood tests came back normal, and I have an appointment in a couple of days with a neurologist; however, I was curious if anyone had experienced symptoms like this before.  It seems like when I have one symptom, I don't have the other symptom.  At least I notice the other symptom decreases and the other increases and then they flip flop.

    I had unbearable pain in my right thigh and electric shocks running up and down my leg. After 9 months

    I went to see a neurologist. MRI was taken. Results spinal stenosis.  I'm not implying that's your problem

    but having an MRI will give you a definite diagnosis.Not to worry. Best of luck.

    Do you take any medications? If you do and start getting symptoms, always start there first. Drug inserts are available online. Look under adverse reactions and if taking more than one medication (even over the counter) look for drug interactions. Some can increase plasma levels of one drug, causing toxicity, while decreasing efficacy of the other All AREN'T listed on the drug insert itself. You can usually find other known medication side effects on reputable medical sites like Mayo. If in doubt, contact the drug manufacturer. They have safety teams that will look into your situation if it truly is a side effect of the drug. Last, but not least, if you do experience a true adverse reaction to a medication, report it to the FDA.
