Persistent Muscle Twitches throughout Body
For about 2 months now, I've had persistent muscle twitches. They started in my right hand, and now they occur regularly in my legs, hands, arms, and occasionally in my face, shoulders, and torso. I went to my primary care place, and they referred me to a movement disorder neurologist. I'm scheduled for an appointment there in January 2024. I've asked them to keep me on a cancellation list in case any earlier appointments become available.
I'm worried about the muscle twitches being an early symptom of a serious condition. I have trouble sleeping at night, partly because of the twitches, and partly just from constant worry and anxiety. The muscle twitches are worse at night when I'm lying in bed, and also when I'm quietly sitting down reading or watching television. I don't notice them so much when I'm actively moving around during the day, walking, swimming, gardening, etc.
Has anyone else experienced anything like this ? What was the diagnosis ? Thanks for any help that you can provide.
