Does Anyone Get Muscle Twitches?

Does Anyone Get Muscle Twitches?

I'm wondering if anyone gets muscle twitches. If so, are they mild and "small" sensations or strong? Do they last for a while or just for a second? Do you ever get involuntary movements? And do you think this is related to lupus? Any information at all would be appreciated.

After months of foot/ankle pain (along with everywhere else!), I started feeling constant twitching in my feet and calves about two months ago (usually when I sit or lie down), and now I occasionally also get twitches… read more

I have lupus and dystonia which is a form of Parkinson’s. I used to get involuntary movements but since I was pregnant two and a half years ago it’s been in remission, thank God! I’ve noticed a lot of twitching for the past couple of months. I’ve even had my tongue to twitch from time to time. It’s not a huge twitch but when I stick my tongue out it looks like my tongue has things moving around in there. It’s very weird. I think I have a nervous system issue bc I also have tingling in my face, head, and legs. Nobody seems to want to take that issue serious, so I’m dealing with it at the moment. My rheumatologist just up and left town and I have to find a new one, so I can’t address those issues until I do. Sorry for the long answer.

Thanks @A MyLupusTeam Member. Sorry to hear the twitches sometimes stop you from doing activities. Do you have them every day, and usually in the same spot(s)? Did your rheumatologist say anything about it? Thanks again. I hope you are having a good day.

I get muscle twitches all the time, so much so that sometimes i have to wait for the twitching to stop in order to continue whatever it was that i was doing
