I have been experiencing unstoppable vastus medialis involuntary contractions on and off for 3 hrs now. I am on Singulair and Loratadine for allergies and tonight took Advil PM for a gym injury involving the thoracic spine. I have pain upon flexion of spine. No other symptoms. Should i make a trip to the ER?
