Hello,

Customer:

hello

Dr.tiwari :

Will you please answer some questions so that i can help you-

1.Are you taking treatment for high blood pressure or diabetes?
2.Are you feeling excessively stressed?
3.Is there any recent dehydration problem or are you taking less liquids?
Please reply.

Customer:

1. No

Customer:

2. no 3. no

Dr.tiwari :

Thanks for information.

Dr.tiwari :

The localized twitching is not serious one but surely it may annoy you.This may occur in all muscles of the body.This is only a local firing of the muscles of the body.This may occur due to dehydration,aging process or more seriously a developing motor neuron disease.
I will advice you to rule out these factors & increase the intake of vitamin b complex.If this does not resolve your problem then have aconsultation with your neurologist.He may run some test like NCV & EMG study.

Hope this will help you.

Customer:

should I have any concern about an anurisium in the arota that is in the abdomen? Does it travel to the left side by the rib cage?

Dr.tiwari :

No,The abdominal aorta passes in the midline.

Dr.tiwari :

& also it will not lead to feeling of twitch but a pulsating feeling with localized pain.

Customer:

thanks how much Vit B should I take daily?

Dr.tiwari :

Yes.

Dr.tiwari :

It will help you.

Customer:

Since this has been getting worse over the past two weeks - how long should I wait after increasing intake of water and Vit B before going to the DR.

Dr.tiwari :

You should take it for at least 2-3 weeks.But if mean while symptoms does not improve or progresses then you may consult your doctor early.

Dr.tiwari :

Do you have any other queries?

Dr.tiwari :

If you are satisfied with my answer then please PRESS GREEN ACCEPT.
