I've got constant muscle twitches in my legs that never stop and occasional twitches elsewhere. There’s definitely weakness and some loss of tone in my legs. I experience strange tingles in all parts of my body from time to time as well as pins and needles. I also have some unusually vision problems that have come up lately as well as inconsistent cognitive issues. All my reflexes are normal and there is no Babinski's sign.

Lymes – all negative
Head trauma – Yes more than once
Vit D deficiency
Chronic sinusitis
Brain lesion 8mmx5mm :confused:

  • Check that you're getting enough magnesium. Probably the best way to get more into your body is through your skin with magnesium oil. You can find it online. I had twitches similar to yours and within a short time of taking oral magnesium (didn't know about the oil then) the twitches went away. Low magnesium causes *all sorts* of problems like the others you mention too.

  • I suggest getting on the B12 misdiagnosis thread and posting your issues there. B12 deficiency can cause every one of your symptoms. Please get a uMMA test for B12 to rule this out. Best wishesDOM

  • You should Google OI (orthostatic intolerance)
