Not likely: You may have fibromyalgia. You need to discuss this with your physician and possibly see a rheumatologist. This is unlikely to be Lyme disease but there are other possibilities in the differential diagnosis that need to be confirmed. Your evaluation will include examination, lab studies and maybe imaging. ...Read more

Involuntary movements an issue? Have invol. Movements only when i try sleeping. Lip puckering/ twitching. Jaw moving. Muscle twitch. Face twitching.

Could be normal.: Involuntary movements may occur during the dreaming phase of sleep. Some people may have difficulty getting to sleep because they worry a lot and when they finally fall asleep their muscles twitch which can cause them to wake up. It can also happen when you are very tired and yet you may have a hard time to relax and sleep. I wouldn't worry too much about this. ...Read more

There isn't a : Subconscious anxiety. I would guess that you may clinch or grind your teeth at night. That can go up with anxiety but not dependant on it.

Treatment for bruxism is Clonazepam at night, perhaps a dental splint. I would go in, it may be something else; gd luc. ...Read more

Whenever i have a twitch in my foot, jaw, arm, or finger my eyes tend to look over to the left or up involuntarily. Why is this?

No explanation: I can't think of a good neurological mechanism that explains this series of events. Does it happen EVERY TIME you twitch? & why are you getting twitching anyways? Has that been looked into? Do you have Benign Fasciculation Syndrome (BFS?). Perhaps, if you tracked down the origin of your twitches? You could contact me directly at www.healthtap.com/drsaghafi. I'm a violinist if that might help? :) ...Read more
