For nearly 4 years now i have been having muscle spasms or twitches all over my body. In my face, legs, stomach, inside my ear, everywhere imaginable! Its usually in one place at a time and will stay in the same area for as long as 6-8 months, then just when i think its all over one will start in another location on my body, and last for who know's how long. I can't take it anymore, they are driving me crazy, because of them I cant concentrate, I'm depressed, I'm always tired, never want to do anything. I'm only 28 years old, and am usually very,very active. Sports, outdoors ect., this is not me. Doctors say I'm fine but I'm obviously not, Please help with any suggestions !

  • I feel for you. I also suffer from muscle twitches, but mine occur all over the place, not in one spot for extended periods. Mine are mostly on my limbs, basically below the neck. For me they started in the fall of 2006, along with a bunch of other symptoms. And like you doctors can not find anything wrong with me. Mostly they just disregard and ignore this twitching. So I fully understand your frustration. Have you been seen by a neurologist? I didn’t get anywhere when I complained to mine, but if you have not seen one it is worth a try.

  • I have not yet been to a neurologist, but i suppose that would be the next step. I have had sooo many other test done and everything comes back negitive. I feel my doctor doesnt understand what its like to live like this and doesnt take my condition seriously. The part that really hurts is the depression , and the inability to concentrate when your muscle spasms constantly, i know you are probobly dealing with alot of the same depression issue as me. I pray to god that some day this will end for me , you and other ppl in the world that have to suffer. Take care and keep in touch about your progress! And I'll do the same.

  • I've heard from other forums that alot of times spasms and twiching can be caused from magnesium diff. Just wondering if you have tried any multi-vitamins and if you have seen any results from the them?

  • Have you ever heard of turrets syndrome? Since I can’t see your actual twitches I don’t know if this is a possibility, but if you are unfamiliar with this condition you might want to read up on it and see if it sounds like you. No matter what, a neurologist would be the doctor to diagnose or rule out turrets.
