I am a 24 year old female who experiences muscle fasciculations in both calves, shoulder muscles and around my mouth. I have several small lumps in the small of my left back that can be moved. I have gone to several doctors and have been told that it is due to muscle spasms from my posture (took a muscle relaxant but the lumps did not go away) as well as lymph nodes and both told me that I should not worry about it. I find it hard to deny the fact that the lumps are there and have been there for more than a year and the fasciculations have been present for more than 3 years (they first presented as mild paraesthesias confined to my left leg) which was diagnosed as symptoms due to a pinched nerve. I don't know what to do. I really feel like the lumps should be imaged or something. Any suggestions as to what this is? I have not had any severe spinal injury. When I was 18 I fell down stairs and blacked out/fainted - my back was imaged and I was told I was fine.

  • I have had the muscle fasiculation in my right calf for over 8 years and it is constant. I have them in both calves and other parts of my body also just not constant. I have had nothing else more severe except the worry that something else is a problem. I know your concern over this just know that I have been having this a lot longer than you and everything is still fine. Good luck to you.
