About a month and a half ago I had surgery to have my gall bladder removed. About a week after the surgery I noticed my right calf was stiff, kind of like a charley horse feeling. That lasted about a week then the muscle twitching started. Over the last 6 weeks it has gradually gotten worse and has moved to other parts of my body. My calves still twitch from the moment I wake up to when I go to sleep. It has spread to my stomach, thighs, lips, eyes, forearms..... you name it and I’ve had it twitch. I’ve also had the muscles in my legs and forearms get really sore like I had done a bad workout. But haven’t done anything to demanding. Went to my doctor who brushed it off as a vitamin B12 defiancy at first. Gave me a shot of B12 and have been taking it at home for about 4 weeks along with Magnesium and a multivitamin. The twitching has only gotten worse and pain in arms and legs comes and goes. I did go to a neurologist for an initial visit a week ago. He didn’t notice any muscle weakness but did see the twitching. I am scheduled to go backing a week for an EMG but am scared I’m gonna get the worst news from this. I guess I’m just wondering if there is any way this is anything other than a NMD that will just keep getting worse. Also I have had pin in the middle of my back just to the right of my spine for the last two years that has gotten worse lately too. Had an X-ray on it that came back normal so I don’t know if that could be something that has to do with this. Have had blood work already for thyroid and Lyme disease. All clean. Freaking out a little bit.
