I am 34 years old and am in pretty good health. In the last month I have noticed that my motor movements are much more coarse than usual. My hands have a slight tremor and my fine motor movements are not very smooth. When my muscles are statically contracted they tremor and the tremor is most obvious during an eccentric contraction. Also, I have experienced twitching muscles, especially in my right hand.
I am becoming a little worried. I have not experienced any numbness or abnormal deterioration of vision and my coordination still seems pretty good other than a little loss of fluidity.
Does this sound physiological or neurological? Could it be some sort of electrolyte imbalance? Could these symtoms be associated with MS or Parkinsons or does it sound like something else?
