Twitching all over my body? I'm freaking out.

Hello everyone,

So I started having these twitches on my left eye like a week a go and since then almost every muscle has been twitching in my body. I fear of brain tumor or any other brain disease. I hope not.
By twitching I mean like shaking, for example my left bottom eyelid shakes often enough. It's not even much noticeable if someone looks at me unless from really close, but I feel it and it's very scary for me.
Usually the twitches happen when I'm sit or trying to sleep. I also have a headache which is not severe and comes and goes every now and then.

I'd rate my stress and anxiety very high and this condition only makes me worse. I don't get much sleep lately sometimes because I want to wake up early some other times because I just wake up (from 3 to 6 hours daily).
In 2010 I had an accident where I hit my head and went in a coma state for about 8 hours. I had just a very small hematoma in the back of my head. This is the main reason I fear brain tumor, if that could be related.
I hope it's nothing, I'm going to my doctor on Thursday and see what he has to say.
Thanks to all in advance.

Hi there!

Well, without a clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. Possibilities that may need to be considered include stress/ anxiety, neural inflammation, epilepsy, neuro-degenerative conditions, muscular causes etc. You could try being relaxed and see if it seems to help. If you do not see any improvement over the next few days, I would suggest considering an evaluation by a primary care physician and depending on the cause identified, it can be managed accordingly.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
