For the last few months I have been experiencing twitching. For example....if Im sitting still my left foot may jump up....then a few seconds later my left (or right) hand may jerk....maybe a slight twitch in my calf....etc
I have been taking antidepressants for 6 years or so for panic attacks. I recently switched to Lexapro from Prozac; however, I started experiencing this twitching prior to the switch.
It seems to worsen when I feel "high strung." Almost like electricity going through my body at times. A unique symptom occurred last week when I was typing on the computer keyboard and my left hand was tapping on the keyboard by itself (this symptom hasn't occured since).
Additionally, when I was a child, if I were sitting still and lifted my left heel off of the ground (while keeping weight on the toes) my leg would bounce up and down. My mother has shaky hands and my psychiatrist said it was familial tremor...however, I have read that familial tremor rarely affects the legs. All of this is very very concerning to me. I am 26 years old and currently looking for a job...so I do NOT have health insurance. These small twitches of the limbs are worrying me terribly for I feel as if I MIGHT have parkinsons. I have a very bright future ahead of me so I really dont know what to think.
