Are you taking anti deppressants or recently stop taking them? Twitching is a side effect that is more common than you would think.

You're probably ok, it's probably from lack of sleep.

Your fine bigman, twitches are from nervousness and being uptight all the time.

Hey
Hi I hve an anxiety disorder and depression. At the moment I can hardly sleep, which is really bothering me. Ive also noticed that I get a lot of muscle spasms/twitching and sometimes I cant stop shaking. Once I even got stared at coz my arm would not stop shaking and I was so embarrased :oops: I have stomach troubles and constantly feel lethargic, panicky and trembly. I hate feeling like this and I dont know what to do. :(

I hate it!! I wake up in the night to feel my arm going crazy n continually shaking..Longest its lsted has 2 be about 5 mins. I get it when im not doin anything, like if im sitting down, sleeping etc. Sometimes its painful but its also embarrasing coz I cant stop it. I dont really know why I get it, I spose it could be linked to stress. I also get this horrible crawling sensation and my muscles ache a lot :(

Hey

i get sketched out when I feel anxious, and have little ticks and things. But, just as a warning, you may be on too much medication (if you're on medication at all) -- you should talk to your doctor. I know that when I was on too much prozac (and when I was on paxil) my dosage was too high, and started to affect my nervous system. My doctor told me that being kept at too high of a dose of meds would have possibly eventually caused a stroke. Something to keep in mind. I was twitchy, restless, and anxious, and my heart would race sometimes.

Or it could just be natural symptom of an anxiety disorder -- I guess you have to listen to your body. I'd suggest talking to your doctor though, just in case.

It happened to me when I got off wellbutrin and adderall... I had also started drinking a lot and had trouble sleeping. If you drink or stay up for 2 days that could have been why. They suck but probably aren't serious unless you've been on speed your whole life or a raging alcoholic...

Most people have a twitch or jerk once and a while. If it ain't happening everyday, don't worry about it. If it is, you are probably dying. Joking, I have to say that because some slow retards don't get when you are kidding.... Anywho, sedatives help. Ask for something from your doctor if you have them often. And gazza_man, you are a hypochondriac. Not trying to be an ass even though I am one, but you are. You have put too many posts on here about stuff that every person goes through. You are like tweak from southpark, so calm down, drink a few bottles of wine and pop bottle of xanax and you will feel groovy!

I've been having tremors where my whole arm and shoulder shakes uncontrollably. I also have tremors in my leg and troso sometimes. I also have tingling, numbness, pains, spasms and burning sensations all over my body. Doc says its stress. I'm 18 and a college student. I don't think i'm that stressed and i'm also a very laid back person what do you all think.
