Customer Question
I am a 32 /...
I am a 32 / F experiencing intermittent muscle twitching. I have had this problem in past years, but every time I have these episodes, I fear ALS.
The twitching is not non-stop, but it occurs every so often in various parts of my body: face, arms, hands, legs, butt, back, etc.
