My name is Aung. I am 32 yearl old burmese-Indian race.It has been 2 week my tricep is twitching in the same spot everyday.but not continueously.The twitching only occurs when I try to pee or some occation in Bowel Moement.Normal time Almost no twitch.Even I have a few time no twich while peeing small amount.

I did not feel week until I googled and end up with ALS symptom.

Is twitching muscle is Symptom of ALS and I am so sacred.I have series of health anxiety previous.I did Blood Work 2 week ago and all clean.My Magnesium,Potassium and Sodium and Thyroid level are all normal.More over,I have no arthiritis and test come back normal.I visited to Neurologist and she tested me with rubber hummer for Phisilycal Test and she does not seems concern as my limbs are function very welm and I have no sign of Muscle Lost. of ALS though she instruted me to do Blood Test Regsrding ESR,ANA 23-Profile,ANCA.Any idea of those tests?Is Twitching make muscle waste and so is ALS?

I would apprciate any of your suggestions.

      Hi Jake

      It's a small span to diagnose anything.

      It will eventually go away.

      About weakness if u can lift weights , button ur shirts ,open lids of jar ur fine.they don't have any medication on twitching.all they gave me is calcium,vit d ,b12 injections and anxiety med which have lot of side effects.(I discontinued those)

      I have visited my neurologist for nearly 4 to,5,times for twitching but he has never suggested me an emg

      As he thinks it to be anxiety.

      I do feel weakness in my feet sometimes but not always so that's a good sign.

      Eat healthy,take care n be positive

      Dear Doomi

      Yes I can lift the weight,In fact I everyday lift the weight to see how it effects.I visited 3 neurologist and phyisical exams they did and they did not too concern .Was your symptoms getting better after taking VitD,B12 and Calcium.How do you feel now?

      I too hope it is axiety related problem and not big underlying cause.
