    In the last couple months I have been getting muscle spasms and twitching a lot. I used to get it once in a great while, but now it seems I get twitching that lasts a couple days and then I work out again and then it moves to another spot on the body.

    It is most common in my shoulders and back/lats... I am not really worried, but just wondering what is the likely cause and if anyone else gets this.

    It's one of two things:

    1. Super AIDS

    OR

    2. If it's in your vagina, you may be starting your period. I'd talk to your mommy about blossoming into womanhood.

    Could be a lot of things. Some you should be worried about, others not.

    Perhaps you should see a qualified doctor?

    I twitch a lot, but mainly when I'm sleeping. It's just your muscles rebuilding.

    Thank you.

    I'll look into both.

    But seriously folks....

    I've had these before but never really thought anything about it. I've noticed in the past when I have a lot of stimulants in my system like caffeine or something, my eyelids twitch some. Same thing happens when I'm under a lot of stress.

    If it's persistent, you should get it checked out. Especially if there is any arrhythmia, "heart fluttering" or shortness of breath associated with it.

    Ironically, I have given up caffeine for the most part in the last couple weeks. I was taking pills daily for my e/c stack, but about 2 weeks ago I stopped and now I only have maybe 3 cups of coffee a week.

    I have been having a bit of arhythmia but its not consistant.. maybe once or twice a day. I'll try to stay well hydrated and if it is still happening in a week I guess I will go in to the Doc.

    I was thinking it might be from golf since it started about the same time I started playing golf... And the twitches are usually in my back/lat/shoulders, so maybe my golf swing is doing this :hs:

    Golf might be to blame for the back twitches, but I'd get the ol ticker checked out if you feel any kind of heart flutters or arrhythmia.

    My calves twitch 24/7. They've been doing that for as long as I've paid attention. I'm fully hydrated and eat a completely nutritious and balanced diet.
