Do you ever get random twitches?

xOhxSoxScandalousx xOhxSoxScandalousx
Do you ever get random twitches on different parts of your body? For like a month now I've been getting the most annoying twitches on the side of my foot. It's driving me crazy! I get twitches on my eyelid and thigh once in a blue moon. But the twitch on my foot has been haunting me just about everyday. Lol. Anyone know how to make it stop? hahaha.

Are you taking any medications? Some can cause twitching like that...

Nope. No medications. Other than once in a while if I have a headache or something and I take ibuprofen or something else.

I totally have that. I get a random twitch in my neck or my arm sometimes and it drives me crazy! I also hate those sudden, full-body shudders that come out of nowhere and make you look like an idiot...

Yes. All the time. Especially if I'm nervous, or right after sex.

Hahaha! Doesn't it piss you off? I'm sitting here, starring at my foot..looks like a damn worm crawling around underneath my skin. So creepy! Our bodies do the most annoying things sometimes. Lol.

I especially hate toe cramps. Those are the worse! They strike at any moment and always seem to arrive when your around company. So embarrassing. Lol.

I pretty much only get those in my eyelids, and only when I've either overworked my eyes or I'm really tired.
Usually a short nap makes the pesky things go away though. ^_^

These quick Clonic Tics can be caused by migraine or other neurological issues and, unless they interfere with functioning or happen all the time, are usually benign.

I have Migraine Disease (this is what they are calling it now, it's not just headaches, it's a real disease with body wide symptoms and involvements) and I get these a LOT, especially if I am in a lot of pain, but sometimes just for no reason. I've hit my hand against walls without meaning to, and even kicked my husband in bed. Usually they are milder than this. (Three members of my immediate family have Tourette, and although similar, these benign tics are pretty different in scale than full blown Tourette Syndrome, of course. But, they may originate in the same region of the brain.)

If it happens in the same muscle over and over, then it's a spasm and quite different than a random tic. Sometimes warm compresses can help with spasms.

As long as they are rare and don't interfere with your ability to drive, work, eat, sleep, breathe or socialize they shouldn't be a problem. If you notice an increase in them, mention them to your doctor.

I hope you feel better.

That sounds more like a spasm than a Clonic Tic. But, without seeing it, I can't know for sure. Try putting pressure on your foot, stretching the muscle, walking around and exercising the muscles a little bit and then try a warm pack or compress. This may help you.

Migraine Disease? Wow! That sounds exactly like what I have. My doctor could never give me a straight answer about anything or a name. I'll have to ask him if he thinks this might be it... Thanks P'Gell!

I have spasms and constant migraines and other symptoms. They're sometimes full body spasms or just located in one spot.

@RickyNStephy - I hope you get well soon!!


I'm curious though, does anyone else's spasms or tics hurt?

I have that happen too, I find it happens more when I'm tired, or maybe only when I'm tired. My leg will jerk or something. It's so weird. My fiance and I both do it in our sleep. I have woken myself up before as I was just drifting off and jerked myself awake. My eye has too when I'm tired.

I don't think it's really anything medically wrong.

I get muscle spasms a lot, but not a lot of nervous twitches. Sounds like P'Gell helped you out.

Yes, my right leg, eyelid and left forehead. Nerve damage from an injury--pisses me off and there is nothing I can do for them.

P'Gell, thanks so much for giving me your insight. I don't think it's a serious problem. It's just annoying as hell. Lol. It doesn't hurt at all. Just irritates me and freaks me out to watch it twitch everytime. Lol. A cousin of mines has the same migraine problems as you. As a child she had so many issues with it. Sometimes it would make her vision go black on either one of her eyes. It was scary. She's dealing with it much better now but still get's the migraines. I haven't had a migraine in a long time. I'm so glad I don't have them frequently. That sucks that you have that disease and I hope one day it will get better and wont bother you anymore.

Thanks for your advice and personal stories everybody.

Maybe poor circulation? I know that my wife gets them from time to time. My step son has Tourettes that comes with a lot of involuntary twitching. His parents didn't realize he had it til almost 7 years of his activity when they finally diagnosed him. I would talk to a doctor about it though. Or you could always google something like "constant twitching of the foot or foot muscles". Something like that might pull up forums or dr articles that you can try to compare your experiences to, in the event that you cannot see a dr. Might help you to at least narrow things down. You might have some sort of vitamin deficiency too. I'd check into it.
