muscle twitch or muscle spasm?
« on: April 09, 2014, 10:29:30 PM »
I have a wound on my palm and the muscles next to it would move when i contract it but it also moves when its relaxed. The muscles would contract/twitch a little and relax for 2 seconds and theres no pain. I was wondering if this is a muscle twitch or muscle spasm

Twitch.  Spasms are painful.

Ok. I googled it and it said some muscle spasms arent painful depending where its located. The muscle contracts which made me think its a spasm but its not painful which made me think its a twitch so i dont know

The muscle spasms you are likely worried about are a limb contorting painful contraction.
