Highly unlikely. Relax. At young age, occasional muscle twitching is usually harmless. If you have lost muscle mass and/or if it bothers you enough, see your primary care doctor for an exam. They may order labs (calcium etc) to make sure nothing is amiss. Read more...

In my case I'm 22, I have twitching n n jerking in some body muscle, left leg and arm feal weak on and off, could that mean ALS, what's the %?

<1% chance of ALS. It is common for people to experience muscle twitching phenomena. Be healthy, eat right, exercise, & do not worry. In the early stages amyotrophic lateral sclerosis presents with increasing weakness in one limb, usually a hand. Fasciculations (twitching muscle fibers) are usually subtle. Then speech & swallowing difficulties are seen, as is difficulty walking. Still worried? your MD can do a test. Read more...

36, woman, tightness in left leg, some muscle cramping & twitching in both legs, arms, & lower back. Left leg feels tight when walking. ALS?

Not clear not ALS. This needs clarification - the twitching can be benign fasiculations but I am not cleare. It can be neurological. Read more...

Early 20's male, I been having weaknes on left arm and hand and left leg but comes and goes, some twitching around my body any ideas, ? Thanks

Any ideas? Here's an idea: See a doctor. It doesn't sound like something you should blow off. Weakness in an arm and a leg on one side at the same time should be checked out before you decide not to worry about it. Read more...

Random, intermittent, short lasting muscle twitches in various places on my body. Mostly legs and arms, but other places as well. No obvious weakness/atrophy. They have been present 1 1/2 to 2 years. BFS? Should I be concerned?

Explanation . These twitches possibly are short muscle spasm. May happen due to abnormal Ca metabolism. The first of all check your diet for milk, cheese, and use Fish oil 1200 Daily for 1-2 month. And tonic water. You having these for ~ 2 years, that's why you can try it for 2 months. Then go to a doctor. . Read more...
Probably not. . Given no other symptoms and no worsening over 2 years makes it likely to be simply normal muscle twitch that is rather common. . Read more...

Random muscle twitches all over body. Mostly in arms in legs, pretty much occur daily, have been present for years. No noticeable weakness. Cause? BFS?

See neurologist. there are multiple causes for this from simple muscular exhaustion to neurological diseases that can progress. The fact that its been years and no noticeable weakness is reassuring but you need to get checked making sure electrolytes are normal, possible leg to make sure its not a seizure activity. A neurologist would help you find the cause. Read more...
Likely BFS. If you have had this for years with no weakness then benign fasciculations syndrome is highest on differential. Make sure you had your magnesium levels checked. in certain cases magnesium supplementation helps. cut back on your caffeine intake and decrease your stress. consider eval with EMG testing to be sure it is just BFS; if it was ALS,MMN,myopathy etc you would have developed weakness by now.
