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?

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.

For most depressed patients, the benefits of meds are indistinguishable from placebo. Good treatment for depression is psychotherapy (with or without meds). ...Read more
