I have been having muscle twiches all over my body it

Customer Question
Hi I have been having...
Hi I have been having muscle twiches all over my body it started on the right side of my face.... then went to the left side and went dizzy. I went to the ER they did an ECG on me and everything was normal. They gave me tranqipam and meticorten. The doctor thought I had bells palsy which I now know I don't. . 4 days later I was driving and became so dizzy I had to pull over and get out the car. Eventually went to the hospital again to do another ecg which came back fine again. The twitches have calmed down with the medication, just get disorientated and dizzy and very mild headaches. The headaches only started after using the medication.
Thanks

The meticorten is prednisone, a powerful steroid anti-inflammatory. It can certainly cause dizziness and headaches. Have you ever had it before?

As for the twitches, if they come and go they are likely fasciculations, a very common occurence in otherwise healthy individuals. They are usually associated with stress, fatigue, health anxiety, poor sleep, etc. They typically improve after a couple weeks or months.
