Muscle twitching is caused by minor muscle contractions in the area, or uncontrollable twitching of a muscle group that is served by a single motor nerve fiber. Muscle twitches are minor and often go unnoticed. Some are common and normal. Others are signs of ...Read more
Almost constant twitching in left calf and some in right. I have mild lumbar scoliosis with hypertrophy and spinal stenosis. Could this cause this?
Twitching: How long has this been going on? It may be ok. It is a common symptom. Twitching could be caused by some changes in your back, in particular if there are changes around S1, which is a common site for stenosis. What is more important- are the calves strong? Do they seem like a normal size? If you can stand up on your toes/balls of your feet, it may be ok.
Can spinal cord injury (no known trauma) cause twitching through out the body? MRI of brain normal. Take magnesium, calcium, D3, but no help.
Unlikely: What type of spinal cord injury might you be referring to if you are saying there is no trauma in the history? In addition, for twitching throughout the entire body to be related to spinal cord damage that would imply that virtually the entire spinal cord itself would have to have been affected and that is highly improbable. Bottom line-spinal cord injury not responsible for body twitching.
Not really: Although it varies somewhat based upon when you had surgery and what type of surgery you had, it is not really a typical postop complaint. I would certainly make sure your surgeon is aware. Thank you.See 1 more doctor answer
Hello I have spinal stenosis, im 55 two fusions in c5 c6 one plate in front two in back now I am having a twitch in my chin any ideas if conected? Th
Not likely: The nerves that supply your chin and the rest of your face exit directly out of the brain and so are not affected by abnormalities in the neck. Don't hesitate to be seen and evaluated.
Can l4-5 spinal stenosis + left sided herniation cause muscle spasm in both legs? Why do I feel weakness in leg as it twitches?
Yes: Spinal stenosis generally causes diffuse weakness in both lower extremities and get aggravated with activity. Leaning forward as you would on a bike or sleeping in a fetal position flexes the spine and generally alleviates the pain from stenosis. You appear to have a one level disc herniation which would cause numbness, weakness, spasm in the muscles that are innervated by that nerve root.See 2 more doctor answers
Nerve dose twitch: Muscle twitches are caused by our muscles tightening up involuntarily in other words when we're not actually controlling them muscle twitches can happen for lots of reasons like stress too much caffeine a poor diet exercise or as a side effect of some medications most twitches go away in a few days and are nothing to worry about some time the cause nerve problems or other medical conditions.
Rest assured that...: ...your kidney, for as many years as it sits in the back of your body attached to a bladder full of wet urine, perhaps always trying to absorb the shock of your poor posture as well as when your babies were squishing the heck out of them while you were pregnant....that they are not looking to move down the street by jumping out of your body and slithering away. Twitching's for MUSCLES not beans!
Yes: Acutely compressed nerves can result in muscle twitching, muscle spasm and typical painful radiation patterns. This is due to the abnormal signal the nerves are now sending to the muscles which are reacting to its signal. Sometimes this is an involuntary action in which the nerve is reacting like a reflex arc that is on replay. This cycle of nerve signaling needs to be broken to improve this.
Just relax: May be you just exited or anxious. Just relax yourself!! Drink tea, camomile tea is good. Take a rest. It's not normal, but may happen with anxiety.
