My ears twitch a lot. Is this normal? Is it just a normal spasm?

My ears twitch a lot. Is this normal? Is it just a normal spasm?

May be normal: Twitching of an ear or eyelid, which happens in normal people, is called myokymia (an involuntary, spontaneous, quivering of a few muscle cell bundles within a muscle). Myokymia starts and stops spontaneously. It can last a few minutes to a few days. One should see his primary care doctor, plus an ear or eye doctor, if such symptoms persist, keep recurring, or are combined with any other symptoms. ...Read more

Is it normal for my manubrium to stick out pretty far? It causes no pain, but my chest bones pop occasionally. Is this just a normal variant?

Is it normal for my manubrium to stick out pretty far? It causes no pain, but my chest bones pop occasionally. Is this just a normal variant?

Likely normal: There are many physical variances in the human body when compared from person to person, the size and shape of the sternum is no exception. At 37 years old, I am assuming that your extended manubrium has never caused any problems and i doubt that it ever will. Same with the occasional, non-painful chest popping. ...Read more

For the past two maybe three months my stomach has a twitching that it does...is it gas or something else...? Is this normal.. Its kind of annoying

More info please: When you say twitching, do yo mean internal as in gas, or external as in seeing the muscles twitch. They are entirely different. With gas, is it upper abdomen with belching or lower abdomen with passing gas? Treatment approaches would differ, but pay attention to the foods you eat because understanding that can go a long way toward finding your solution. Hope that helps. ...Read more

A general surgeon can evaluate the growth and make an assessment. ...Read more

I been having a pulsating feeling in my right leg for a day now. It feels like it is twitching rapidly. Is this serious? Or just a muscle spasm?

You need exam: this sounds like a muscle twitch (fasciculation), sometimes it is just a benign fasciculation from overuse of the muscle, sometimes it is from a more serious cause like motor nerve, root, or anterior horn problem, you need to see a neurologist for EMG/NCS if it persists ...Read more

There is a click sound when i then my neck, is this normal, or it is sign of spondylitis?

There is a click sound when i then my neck, is this normal, or it is sign of spondylitis?

Probably benign : A click sound in your neck maybe from degenerative disc disease, or arthritis. Could possibly be something more serious as well. If there is no pain in your neck, or pain going down your arms, then it is probably a benign process. It is wise to see your primary care physician to see if there are any imaging studies needed to evaluate it further. ...Read more

When I have an orgasm there's a lot of liquid. Is this pee? Is this normal or should I get checked? It happens a lot lately.

Orgasm: Female "ejaculate" has been debated in the literature. It has been shown to be urine. There really is no alternate source of fluid. It is probably fairly common and seems normal for you. It does not indicate anything serious and is not likely to progress. ...Read more

My whole left leg hurts. Sometimes it is unbearable, but most of the times it is just a little bit pain. Is this a known disorder?

My whole left leg hurts. Sometimes it is unbearable, but most of the times it is just a little bit pain. Is this a known disorder?

Sounds like: It is nerve pain originating from your low back. Any injuries? If there is any weakness of the muscles, you need to see a doctor because you might need nerve decompression. Is there any swelling? If so, it could be thrombophletis, a potentially dangerous condition. Can't tell for sure, but if it is just pain with no other symptoms, you probably will get better on rest alone. ...Read more

Need more info: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, it would have been useful to have the actual test results as your statement does not provide any information even about what test was done. Talk to the doctor who ordered the test. ...Read more
