Almost constant twitching in left calf and some in right. I have mild lumbar scoliosis with hypertrophy and spinal stenosis. Could this cause this?
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. ...Read more
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. ...Read more

Can l4-5 spinal stenosis + left sided herniation cause muscle spasm in both legs? Why do I feel weakness in leg as it twitches?
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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more
Irritation perhaps: Some irritation to a muscle, nerve, or part of a nerve that goes to certain muscle fibers may cause those fibers to twitch. Such twitching is usually for a few hours or a day, and only once in a while. In those cases, doctors and patients usually don't spend time looking for a cause. But, if symptoms are frequent, or recurrent, a primary doctor, ENT doctor, and a neurologist can evaluate. ...Read more

Localized twitches called myokymia can affect eyelids and face. May be secondary to brain and brainstem irritation, but might also be local secondary to muscle activity, fasciculations. ...Read more
Muscle spasm: This is a very unusual symptom. The cause can be explained by spontaneous firing off of a nerve to the frontalis muscle, a thin muscle that is innervated by the facial nerve. It is similar to blepharospasm or twitching of the muscles around the eye. Usually, it is anxiety, but if it continues, see a neurologist to rule something more serious. ...Read more
