Nerve and or Muscle twitching

3 weeks ago a small portion at the top of my nose started twitching off and on, I didnt think anything of it until a couple days ago when I realized its been happening for 3 straight weeks!  After realizing that and starting to worry I started to experience the twitching going up and down my nose, twitching on both eyes a muscle twitch above my left knee and the back of my neck and on both arms.  I've been freaking out thinking its MS or some other disease and I cannot find any peace at this time.  Im not sure if its stress induced at this point but its starting to effect my life.  Any suggestions before I take a visit to the doctor? I just dont want to go there and it be nothing and be fitted with a huge bill.

Hi
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
Dehydration and electrolyte imbalance, muscle fatigue, pinched nerve due to wrong posture could be the cause. Change your posture and drink some fluids and see. 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!
