[QUOTE=veryworriedguy]Hi everyone,

I have been having NON-STOP muscle twitching all over my body (mostly legs, arms, back) for over 2 1/2 months now....and it seems to have been caused by extreme anxiety I went through during a difficult period of my life. Currently, I am taking Xanax to relax my nerves and reduce the symptoms because they bother me a lot. But anyway, my question is...will I continue the muscle twitching forever?? Or will it eventually go away? Has anyone else experienced something similar to this (anxiety-induced symptoms)...and how long did it take to clear up, if at all??


Stress and Anxiety CAN cause everything you're mentioning. Considering we're not Dr's we can't verify it in your particular case, but chances are if you've been under a lot of stress, this is the cause. I also have been experiencing muscle cramps, muscle spasms, and twitching. After several visits the Urgent Care I was told I was full of anxiety and needed to learn to relax. After visiting a few chiropractors I learned that stressing myself out does make your body physiologically change!!!! In my particular case I had segmental dysfunction, also known as subluxation. This can happen anywhere in your spine and what happens is tight muscles around spinal joints dislocate, pinching nerves, causing pain, spasms, loss of sensation, numbness, even bowel problems. Luckily chiropractic adjustments will eventually retrain your muscles to relax as well as keep the joints in place.
Point of my story, stress CAN and WILL manifest in your body, and muscles fall victim very easily. Try to stretch more often, drink lots of water, and have good posture, especially while on the phone (don't tweek your neck to the left or right to hold up the phone), while sitting at a computer (try to loosen up your shoulders not keeping them tight and "shrugged")...etc...Keep us posted!
