Bad shoes are a recipe for disaster. Try Getting supportive shoes first. New balance sneakers are really good. If it doesn't get better check with your doctor, but it really sound muscular.

No, I haven't done anything to manage my anxiety but maybe I should look into it. All I know is that if I bend my body in a certain way the twitching stops pretty much, which is why I think its a pinched nerve, that and I can pull my leg to my chest and cause the buzzing/vibrations to happen.

Until you do something to help your anxiety, the worrying is most likely not going to go away. Anxiety produces worry that in turn feeds the anxiety. If you can afford it, therapy is a good place to start as a therapist can give you the tools to help control it. If not there are always self help resources that teach Cognitive Behavioral Therapy which have proven results with anxiety. Depending on your level of anxiety, like if it is interfering with your daily life, it may be well to talk to a doctor about meds as well. These are usually the best places to start trying to help yourself.

Yeah... the first few weeks my feet and back were absolutely in pain during work from standing in one place on those terrible shoes with no support... im just wondering if that has something to do with it... and my previous knee injuries. Also, I noticed I've been having like acid reflux or something like that ever since wearing a back brace. It's pretty tight around my stomach... could it be possibly causing that? It's definitely not indicative of ALS I hope. I just think that since I can sit in a certain way to make the twitching stop makes me think that it's just a misaligned spine or pinched nerve. Since the twitches are all over, it can't be ALS.

And yeah, anxiety runs in the family particularly on my mom's side. I've had anxiety issues my whole life and after being forced to read Tuesday's with Morrie in high school i've been absolutely terrified of getting the disease. I tried to get my GP to prescribe me muscle relaxants but she was hesitant because she thought it was drastic considering my age. I really feel as if the muscle twitching in my legs, back, and other areas would stop, everything would be fine. But you guys think I'm okay then? I really think it's posture related since it all started when I started working as a cashier.

Any other thoughts? Think this could be postural related? I've been wearing a back brace and it's been seeming to help a lot.

If it's bothering you that much you should go to doctor to get it checked. No one here can tell you what it is exactly, but it is not ALS.
