Hello, I’m a relatively healthy 26 year old male that’s a bit over weight. 6’0 and 227 lbs. my question is regarding a twitch and somewhat of a numbness I’m feeling in my upper left ab muscle. No tenderness, no bloating, no nausea, and no pain what so ever. Just a weird feeling of fluttering/Twitching for the last week.

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Have you started exercising recently?

Fluttering or twitching of left abdominal muscle muscle is likely due to the over use of the muscle s your other muscles are not doing the same.

This can occur also from sleeping on affected side longer than usual.

Since you do not have any other symptoms, this is not likely serious condition.

Magnesium 200 mg and vitamin B complex supplementation daily will often help with such symptoms.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
