It is a body tissue that has the ability to contract. It shortens and generates force. It relaxes and returns to its original length. Muscles move joints, stabilize the body, move air and food through the organs, act as valves for bladder, bowel and other organs. They control movement of the eyes. They help us express ourselves by changing the shape of our ...Read more

Probably normal: Muscle twitches, especially those around the eye, are pretty normal. Are you going through any stressful times right now? That can often be a trigger. Just try and relax, and it will likely pass before you know it. Best of luck! ...Read more

Can depression amd axiety cause muscle twitching in legs calves eyes lids and loss of weight without trying?

Definitely, yes: Anxiety is state of tension, apprehension, worry, uneasiness or fear. It may be related to anticipated danger or arise for no apparent reason. While mild episodes of anxiety are common and do not usually require treatment, more severe forms can be chronic and debilitating. See your PCP for evaluation and referral to a specialist. ...Read more

I have painless, intermittent muscle twitching in the base of my skull and a cold/wet sensation like a drop of water near my eye. Symptoms for ~3wks?

I have painless, intermittent muscle twitching in the base of my skull and a cold/wet sensation like a drop of water near my eye. Symptoms for ~3wks?

Watch and wait: It can really be anxiety producing when you experience new & unpredictable sensations in your body. It's never happened before, why now? These are both symptoms that seem to be related to the nervous system, but will likely resolve. Possibly some mild nerve involvement from a virus. I would watch, intensify stress management & relaxation, & see your doctor in another couple weeks if persists. ...Read more

I have a lot of muscle twitching and my arms feel like they are shaking inside and recently get really sharp pain in both my eyes..What could it be?

Sleep deprivation?: The sharp eye pain could be dry eyes and doesn't sound related to the twitching . Lack of sleep, however, could aggravate a dry eye condition and cause muscle twitching. ...Read more

Been having vaginal bleeding, uncontrolled muscle twitching, twitching of the left eye, and "lighting bolt" pain in left side of my mid back, ideas?

Been having vaginal bleeding, uncontrolled muscle twitching, twitching of the left eye, and "lighting bolt" pain in left side of my mid back, ideas?

Vaginal bleeding...: ...probably is the most important of your symptoms. I doubt the others have anything to do with it. Any abnormal vaginal bleeding needs professional evaluation. There are too many possibilities and you don't provide enough information to guess at the cause: hormonal, pregnancy, infection (e.g. STDs), and others. Get it checked out and also ask the doctor abour your other symptoms. Good luck! ...Read more

I've been experiencing small muscle twitching on the right side of my body. Under my eye, my calf, my hand and my fingers. Is this something serious?

I've been experiencing small muscle twitching on the right side of my body. Under my eye, my calf, my hand and my fingers. Is this something serious?

Most likely nothing: But pay attention to see if there are any other symptoms. This could be early signs of serious things like ms, but you are mostly likely too young to see this. More than likely it is dehydration and a magnesium deficiency. Try hydrating well, take some over the counter, low dose magnesium and see if these subside. If not, ask your primary care doc. Hope that helps! ...Read more
