Posting to this forum because I've had a lot of anxiety problems in the past and wondering if this current symptom (muscle twitching) could be caused by the same thing.
For three consecutive days now, I've been noticing that my left leg begins twitching rather persistently at times while I am sitting. I notice this in classes and at home, where I spend most of my time. While walking, or riding a bike I don't notice it, but I would imagine that is because of the sensation of muscle exertion trumping the sensation of any small muscular contraction.
Interestingly enough, however, this has not truly been CAUSING me any anxiety. I am more curious about it than anxious. I mean, I know we've all sat on our couch at one point and sat there and watched while our arm twitched away for about a minute...but I'm just wondering about what would cause this kind of daily, persistent, localized occurrence?
Muscle twitching is one of the symptoms of anxiety. Kinda crazy my muscles were just twitching as I was reading your post. I get them all the time. It's more annoying that anything else. My finger twitched for two days a while back!!
