Leg twitching all night
« on: February 15, 2014, 07:15:47 AM »
I have never had this before and am really freaking out. Last night I woke up at about 4am with a constant twitching in my left leg, slightly above the knew to the left. I get occasional twitches sometimes, but this would not let up. I would massage it and it would stop, but the second I stopped massaging it, it came back. I ended up taking a Xanax and got a little sleep, but it's still there, although not as bad. When I walk around it is not twitching.
Any idea what this is? I am pretty active and run 1-2 miles every other day. I wore high heels all yesterday - could that have affected the muscle? I don't have any muscle weakness, etc. I currently take calcium ad vitamin d supplements. I am just frantic - worried about als.

I bet those heels did it!  I went to the gym on Feb. 1 after not being there for a few weeks and overdid the arms.  The top of my left arm (whole tricep area) was twitching up until yesterday!  I had an eye twitching for a month - it's really not uncommon.

Sounds like the high heels to me. A young girl I work with who is 26 told me that if she wears very high heels
for a long time, her legs feel weird.

Yes, I have been having the same issue with twitches. It is really annoying but nothing serious. I have started drinking more water and taking a magnesium supplement and that seems to help, but probably only placebo.  :happy0151:
