For almost 2 years now I had these muscle jerks. I've done a MRI, muscle tests and been to a neurologist. They think I'm crazy. The jerking, or cramping (?) comes when I relax. They move around in all of my body on both sides. If I relax they can randomly go left foot - a finger - neck - left foot again - right leg and so on. The jerks are discreet but visible if you are aware of them. Problem is they rarely come when I'm at the doctors.
Psychiatric meds makes them worse, especially SSRIs. I tried Neurontin and had success until week 2 when my jerks got stronger so I quit. I feel so left out with this and afraid to get worse. I had one period of a few months when they went away but came back.
Other symptoms: Agonizing restlessness, sometimes tremor, stiffness in arms, internal vibrations in left leg that comes and goes (sometimes non existent for a few months), fatique, severe brain fog and so on. I'm 25 years old and female. Never been on neuroleptics. Have no issues with pain. Before this I was on no other meds than birth control and occasionally valium.
