Hi all, my new main concern here is that I get muscle twitches. Sometimes my lip will twitch or "move on its own". Sometimes my tricep, alot of action in my legs, sometimes hand. It's like muscle contractions or twitches I guess you can say, when you look at your skin, sometimes you can even see the muscle contract and move. It has like a bubbling effect.

I never get anything major like a swinging limb or anything but these thigns have been happening for months now. Hasn't really much gotten any worse than it was but i've been having more muscle twiches in my legs and calf. Also, sometimes I get like vibrations in my feet, as if someone has put a slightly vibrating cell phone on it or something. It's weird. Also, sometimes my muscles in my leg tighten a little, nothing major. I severly fear a neuro muscular disease because of this. I fear MS or even worse ALS.

It also happens when i'm not anxious but this is because I rarely have anxiety attacks. My psychologist tells me that I have obssesive thoughts, I can't get the idea that I have a disease out of my head. But the thing that freaks me out is that I get these twitches even when i'm not thinking about my "disease". He said the mind continues to work. Anyways, anyone else have these twitches or "bubbling" of muscles?

Hi there. I can definitely relate. I get these twitches alot. I get them anywhere and everywhere. Even the bottoms of my feet! I've also occasionally felt vibrations in my lower legs and feet also. Like you, I worry about some form of neuro disease, but I've had a brain and neck MRI that was normal, and blood work that was totally normal with no muscle damage or atrophy. I get these twitches more when I'm experiencing more anxiety, but I also get them when I'm less anxious and not thinking about them also. It's scary, but most anxiety symptoms lists I've seen has muscle twitching on them. You're not alone!
