Yes, also try mag.: While I don't know of any research on this, many people report Vit E helps & it's safe to try. While some studies have shown harm from E they used synthetic E. It's important to take natural E with mixed tocopherols. Don't take dl-alpha tocopherol! See http://lpi. Oregonstate. Edu/infocenter/vitamins/vitaminE/ & http://articles. Mercola.

Do we know what causes benign fasciculation syndrome? Twitch in my forehead for a week and worried it might have to do with my laptop bumping my head.
The muscle is twitching--but you knew that. This can be from a muscle effect. Low magnesium or potassium or calcium frequently causes this. But all over.
For one particular muscle, it is the muscle having more reactivity (sore, bruised, injured) or the nerve to it being inflamed, or the brain having less damping down activity (restless leg syndrome). Read more
What, other than Benign fasciculation syndrome, would cause twitching throughout entire body? Eyelids, anus, eardrums, lips, arms, legs, abdomen, etc.
