    Anyone get muscle twitches that last for hours on end?

    I get them here and there and I started getting twitching in my back yesterday afternoon that lasted about 3 hours and then last night my right bicep started twitching pretty hard and today (about 15 hours later) is still going crazy!?

    I checked out Wiki, and doctors don't really know what the main cause it, but they attribute it to high intake of stimulants, and/or magnesium deficiency. I am pretty positive I am not deficient on magnesium and my stimulant intake has actually been cut the last couple weeks.

    It's not a huge deal, but it's freaking annoying.

    yea man, its very annoying. Especially when your in class and it happens. My left quad and right shoulder will twitch. It happens when I dont stretch? I have no clue, but its annoying as hell.

    Do your guys' twitches last for hours on end?

    Water isn't the culprit. I drink PLENTY of water.

    Maybe it does have to do with stretching if that's possible. The last 2 times I worked out I was in a rush and didn't get a chance to engage in my normal 10-15min stretching routine.

    Ok cool... I just wanted to make sure it wasn't just me.

    Just another complication that comes with workout I guess.

    same here! Glad someone posted this too...
    It mainly happens on my left eye. I was thinking it might be from the caffeine. Been taking 600mg/day

    My eyelid will twitch when I haven't been getting enough sleep, and occasionally my shoulder or thumb will twitch, but it doesn't happen often enough for me to track down the culprit

    i dont know about lasting for hours, but ive read that a muscle twitching is your body sending stimulation as it feels you are falling asleep

    Me. I had one that stayed with me off and on for about 2 days. I was just like :wtf: and annoyed as fuck, because I actually like a little twitching sometimes.

    This happened to me after getting a stinger in high school and for about a year after I would get twitching for about 2-3 days a time a few times a month and it sucked.
