Involuntary Finger Movements
I have minor involuntary movements like a finger twitch or a leg jerk especially when I'm lying down. What cud this be due to?
Need examination: Twitches in the limbs can often occur without provocation & generally are considered to be clinically insignificant. If they become frequent or can be brought on by specific stimulation or changes in position of a limb or joint then, investigation of a deeper nature is warranted. I'd be happy to consult you more fully. Please set up an appointment with me by going to: www. Healthtap. Com/drsaghafi
Why do I randomly feel weird throbbing and involuntary movements in different parts of my body? Like eyebrows or hands and fingers.
Neurologist consult: You should see a neurologist asap.Get a more detailed answer ›
I have involuntary movement on my left eye lid and from time to time on my left little finger or thumb. On my hand it is difficult to monitor how regularly as I can't feel it happening. I have dropped a couple of glasses because of that?
Involuntary movement: Needs to be evaluated by your doctor. Please see him/her and you will get the help you need. Peace and good health.
Since 2 nights my left index finger has been showing an involuntary movement either tremor/spasm (once/night for 2 seonds). Could it be serious?
No, fasiculation: There are several possibilities mostly in the neuro realm some of which are benign like fasciculations or idoipathic resting tremor or carpal tunnel synrome or spasm. GIVEN the range of answers see your doctor to check Vitamin levels and for referral to Neurology for thorough eval. An EMG may be indicated. Medications and hand or occupational therapy may be able to help. Don't delay.
Pain numbness in both hands primarily in the last 3 fingers with involuntary muscle movement and weakness?
See your doctor: Unfortunately without more information, this is impossible to answer. However, I'd strongly suggest seeing your doctor to be evaluated as motor control in the fingers originates in the cranial spinal nerves. Good luck!
Difference between tics and spasms? Involuntary foot jerks, leg movements, finger jerks, & jaw jerks that stop occurring when busy. What are these?
Tics: If they stop when otherwise focused they are tics. Have you had a recent strep infection?
Involuntary movements + brisk reflexes: saw neurologist; MRI, EEG, found nothing, conclusion: psychological? Now tingling in left pinky+ring fingers
Involuntary mvmts: There are some causes that have not been addressed, but the first two could be due to a psychological cause. Expect some kind of follow up evaluation and continued discussion to help close the case on these. Tingling in the left hand fingers probably is due to something different, such as mild ulnar nerve compression.See 1 more doctor answer
See your doctor: You should see your doctor to be examined. They can help determine the cause, if there is an underlying neurologic reason or if it is Tourette's syndrome or a transient tic disorder.
Neurologist: These are symptoms suggestive of possible neurological problem. See a neurologist.
Movement disorder: Resting tremor is worrisome. Some persons are nervous and have a need to move even when trying to sit still. This may be normal, but may indicate a disorder. Tourette sydrome can begin in this manner as can parkinsonism. A thorough medical evaluation would be appropriate.
See details: It may be a tendon issue that you cannot resolve by yourself. See an orthopedist or hand surgeon.
Which organ is just below the right side of the rib cage? I feel a lot of involuntary movement in that area. No pain however.
Liver gallbladder: Liver, gallb;adder and the tranverse colon are below the right side of your rib cage.
I twisted my finger and it didn't start hurting until the third day lots of swelling pain upon movement but I can move it bend it?
Probably sprained: You probably sprained your finger if you can still move it, but without an exam and possibly an x-ray, I can't be certain. If it still bothers you, you should see your doctor.
NO: Tourettes syndrome is a movement disorder characterized by presence of both motor and vocal tics for more than 1 year. Involuntary eye movements can be a motor tic and depending on the duration maybe transient (less than 1 year)chronic (more than 1 year). As a result only eye movements is not tourette syndrome.
What to do if I continue getting these involuntary movements quite a lot, just all of a sudden. I've read many things but don't know which would apply to me?
This is complex: You need expert help, unless you have unusual neurological expertise, you will not figure out how to manage this, and it is far safer to see a neurologist ASAP. You could have epilepsy with focal seizures, or even a movement disorder, and these issues require very specific directions.
JLS: The usual is jumping legs syndrome but I guess that it can exetend to other parts. It indicates an irritable nervous system.
Some possible causes: Sudden weakness and involuntary movements could be caused by drug side effects, a stroke, a TIA. a seizure, MS, or an injury to the head. It would help to know if the symptoms affected both sides of the body or not. It would also help to know if the symptoms recur and how long they last.
