Over the last week, I have been experiencing what seems like muscle twitches on the back side of my left hand that makes my index finger move towards my thumb. They come and go throughout the day, but I have noticed that they subside with any sort of activity with my hand and fingers. I notice them the most when my hand is at rest. My hand, fingers, and forearm muscles look the same bilaterally and I don't have any noticeable weakness. What could I be experiencing?
so, if fasciculations occur only at rest, then they are less likely to be ALS. I'm asking because I developed calf fasciculations about a month ago. About the same symptoms as above but just in my right calf.
