My shoulder has been spasming/twitching for three or four weeks now. It twitches vertically right between the anterior and lateral deltoid. It does this most pronounced after raising up my arm laterally (abduction) and then returning my arm back to a relaxed position. After returning my arm back to the relaxed position it seems to take a moment for my deltiod to relax or "unball" so to speak. After a moment it relaxes but begins to spasm a lot....although it spasms without stimulation as well sometimes.I still have full range of motion in my shoulder but my shoulder feels strange with a certain amount of discomfort that is diffucult to explain because it doesn't really hurt but is just "uncomfortable."Recently I have also felt a sensation of numbness across the skin of my anterior deltoid. Not pins and needles though....just a slight numbness.When I follow my finger down my collarbone just before my AC joint my anterior delt feels somewhat fiberous or rigid....right where it connects to my collarbone.Could this be bursitis? Possibly a muscle tear right around my anterior deltoid? Could these conditions cause muscle spasms and numbness??:confused:
