Hello. I am a 26 year old male who has a question. Despite reading multiple sources online that pretty much say I have nothing to worry about, I still want to ask a Neurologist to be semi-sure (I say semi-sure because I am aware you cannot be completely sure without a visit).
I have been having muscle twitches all over. I always got them for as far as I can remember, starting only in my eye lid, but when it started in between my index finger and thumb, it got worrisome. It is a small twitch that comes and goes and some days it is there, some days it is not. Last night, my forearm to my thumb started to twitch briefly, but then stopped. Nevertheless, I get these twitches all over my body pretty much. Some move my entire thy, some are small and barely noticeable. I have no tremors, no weakness (besides perceived but I cant stand on one foot and do all the at home strength tests) and it does not wake me up when I am sleeping. I have had some type of muscle twitches besides the eye lid from years ago, for about 4-6 months now. Could be longer, but like I said, I have only recently started worrying about them.
I am on Suboxone medication 1mg x 2 daily. My blood work came back normal and I have generalized anxiety. The twitching and the worrying about the twitching has made my anxiety worse and has gotten me so worried at some points, it was hard for me to do daily functions because of my worry.
Sometimes, the group of muscle will feel soar or stiff, but I do not know if this is because I am getting small twitches in areas that are sore from doing stupid at home strength tests. I even took it as far as to measure my legs and they are both the same size.
Please, if there is anything else you need from me, please let me know. There is a good possibility I have nothing to worry about, but an answer from a Neuro would ease my mind substantially. The fear of ALS, MS, Parkinson
's all scares the hell out of me.
