    anxiety does not make you twitch-it could be bacteria affecting the nerve endings-had ME/Lyme 28yrs which is due to Lyme disease

    Hi there, I had this really bad over a year ago. Saw neurologist, had tests and nothing came up. He suggested it may have been caused by the antidepressants I was taking (Sertraline, 100 mg), so I stopped them. Movement calmed quite a bit and he suggested residual was just anxiety. Six months later I've been diagnosed with antiphospholipid syndrome. (This was tested for last year and came back negative). I'm not suggesting you have this, but I do think you'd be wise to ask for repeat tests at intervals. And if you are on antidepressants, it may be wise to research possible side effects. Good luck!

    hi JS

    could well be mag deficiency.

     trying soaking in a nice hot bath with epsom salts...if you take magnesium tabs make sure you keep your calcium balanced too.

    i agree with jacqui that often dr s will blame you for their lack of knowledge...they are untrained in nutrition. can you find a naturopath or nutrition adviser?
