Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
it sounds like you may be suffering from myokymia.
Myokymia is an involuntary, local twitching of a few muscle fibers in the body of a muscle. This twitching, if it occurs in a limb, is not strong enough to actually move a joint but can be felt and sometimes seen as an area of quivering. Myokymia commonly involves the eyelids and muscles around the orbit. It often appears and resolves for no apparent reason and has not been linked to any underlying significant pathology. What causes myokymia? Studies have shown that it is associated with anxiety, stress, lack of good sleep, high caffeine intake and the use of some drugs. The best way to treat myokymia is to get more sleep, decrease caffeine intake and decrease stress. The good news is that myokymia is not a sign of serious underlying pathology and often resolves on its own.
Does this make sense to you?
Here is a good article on this topic:
Yes it does. What about computer use. Is there an association with this and extensive use?
Thanks for the article.
Not computer use per-se but rather working hard with decreased rest, high caffeine intake etc....which tend to go hand-n-hand with being on the computer a lot.
Gotcha. Thought I was getting a really serious disease. Well, thank you so much! Happy Holidays to you and your family!
My pleasure. Same to you and yours :o)
