I am a 24 year old male and I've had twitching all over my body for about a year now. It comes and goes in spurts and never had any problems until about a month ago. I felt a twitch below my right shoulder blade that lasted for about 5 days. It started off violently until it subsided to the point I had to use my hand to feel it. Afterwards, my arm felt funny. I thought it might be a bit tired from all the twitching.
Now, my arm feels weak in that I can still lift objects but they feel much heavier. I don't know if this is perceived or true weakness. My shoulder also droops significantly more than the other side now, and as a result causes some neck and mid back pain. I am scared to death of ALS and have health anxiety, but I am just not sure what this could be indicative of. I previously thought it was BFS, but what is this arm weakness and shoulder droop? Is something actually wrong with my muscle such as atrophy? I don't know.
