  : : : : Hi
  : : : : I have a strange effect in my muscles, they vibrate.  I'm conscious of this
  : : : : all the time but especially when I'm not busy I notice it more.  It is
  : : : : especially noticeable in a muscle under contraction (not necessarily heavy
  : : : : contraction, just light, normal use).  The vibrations are very small
  : : : : and just visible, especially at the end of the limb where the natural leverage
  : : : : makes them look bigger.  I'd guess the frequency is 5 or 10 a second, maybe more.

  : : : : Can you offer any advice as to a possible cause? (I'm male,28,otherwise healthy)
  : : : : I looked up 'fasiculation' and Motor Neuron Disease seems to be the only documented
  : : : : cause which didn't give me much reassurance.
