For those with long term muscle twitching
About 9 months ago I started having muscle twitching problems.Three doctors and several thousand dollars later I ran into this website that describes my symptoms to a tee.Unbelievable to me that my neuro Dr. never mentioned this.
I lift 3-4 times per week and in my pursuit to find out what was going on searched wannabebig for answers from fellow lifters.I found several threads on the topic, however, I don't recall BFS being mentioned.It was a tremendous relief for me (don't google muscle twitching unless you want to be scared half to death) so I thought I would pass it along to you fellow lifters that might have the same issues.
I used to get twitches in my shoulder a lot happened after i started playing football for a couple of years, would happen every other day for on and off for about 30 mintues. I now just get them in my quads sometimes, nothing too crazy
I read it, and it says you only get tiwches in muscles you can normally move by yourself....
how come at times i have had twiches in muscles i cant move? i dont get them often but i have had twiches in parts of my face which i cant move, and also individual parts or my arms which i cant move individually (without moving the whole muscle)

A muscle twitch is due to the nerve sending the impulse to move (I believe). If the nerve can send it, the brain can control it, and therefore you can move the muscle. However, you may also be moving other muscles as well.
I have twitches in my face as well.What they mean is any voluntary muscle.You can move muscles in your face by smiling frowning etc.Involuntary muscles would be heart,lungs etc...
