My right arm keeps twitching between my bicep and tricep. What is the likely cause and treatment?
Fasciculation: Most of the time a muscle "twitch" (or fasciculation) is totally normal. However, it can be a sign of nerve disease (lower motor neuron disease). If there was a nerve disease, I would also expect to have some evidence of sensory or strength loss on exam (and in the patient's list of complaints). Additionally I would expect reflexes to be reduced or absent. Without these, it is probably normal. ...Read more

Please be seen by your doctor for a complete evaluation, but if you have the warning signs above you would have to be seen immediately. ...Read more

Could be C7 nerve: Tricep pain and pain in the index/middle fingers follow the C7 nerve and the EMG may have been performed too early to detect the problem. You should still have your dr.

May not be ulnar: The ulnar nerve can cause pain through out its distribution in your arm, but your pain does not fit only ulnar pain. Carpal tunnel syndrome is related to your median nerve.
