Muscle, Nerve twitch

Ma1e
22 years o1d

I have joined this site because I am determined to get my prob1em hand1ed....it drives me abso1utey crazy.  I have a musc1e twitch that happens throughout my body at random in my sca1p, feet, 1egs, arms, and hands.  It is not painfu1, but when I am sitting sti11 it just happens unctro11aby, and even sometimes when I am out and about it happens (especia11y in sca1p)...it increases especia11y when I think about it and when I am under stress....it happens when I am sitting down 1ike every 5-10 seconds in a defferent body part usua11y...

the trippiest part about it though is that it effects peop1e that are around me...its 1ike an e1ectric current is re1eased thru my body and stif1es who ever is around me.  It happens 1ike c1ock work everytime.  Say my 1eg twitches and I am sitting in c1ass, who ever I am sitting next to wi11 react in some sort of itch, rub, or 1ook a fraction of a second after me.  I know this sounds crazy but this has been going on for about 2 years now and I have 1ost a 1ot of hope.  I am socia11y adequate, but this fascu1ation that has been going on has rea11y been bringing me to the deep end emotiona11y and menta11y.  I stopped going to c1asses 1ast semester because I have this prob1em that effects peop1e to the point where I have deve1oped a be1ief that I am a burden around peop1e, and this of course makes the prob1em that much worse...its a vicious cyc1e.  

Has anyone ever heard of this??  I need answers bad1y, and no I am not crazy or anything a1though I fe1t at times1ike my head was going to exp1ode...is there a cure?  

Thanks

Hi
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
Dehydration and electrolyte imbalance, muscle fatigue, pinched nerve due to wrong posture could be the cause. I would suggest you get the blood levels of the following checked if they have not already been checked: potassium, calcium, sodium, magnesium, vitamin B complex, or vitamins B1, B3, or B6 and Vitamin D. Generally deficiencies of any of the above can cause muscle twitching and spasms in localized or generalized areas of the body. Get your kidney function, parathyroid gland function and adrenal function tests done because these affect the electrolyte balance in the body. Stress, alcohol, caffeine and fatigue all cause similar symptoms. Hence if you take alcohol or coffee then cut this down. Sleep at regular hours and see if it helps. Certain sleep disorders and peripheral nerve disorders due to diabetes or hypothyroidism can also be the cause.
Since I cannot examine you and know other related conditions you may be having, nor is a detailed history possible on net, I have listed the various possibilities that should be looked into. Please consult your PCP for primary examination followed by proper referral.
Take care!
