For almost two months, I am having widespread fasciculations. It started from my right arm and became widespread. After some time, I began to notice my right shoulder, and knee started to get fatigued quickly. I have visited my primary doctor so many times until I was given a referral for an EMG. My EMG test was clean, no form of denervation, and the neurologist diagnosed my fasciculations as benign. But now my muscle twitching is worse. Currently, I am getting constant twitching in my right biceps, and it occurs consistently without breaks. I have sleepless nights. Please help.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I reviewed, and I am glad to confirm that we can exclude any possible motor neuron disease, neuropathy, or muscle disorder. I would recommend checking vitamin D, plasma levels for possible deficiency, and thyroid hormone levels for possible thyroid gland dysfunction. Possible treatment options would be Clonazepam that helps to reduce muscle twitching and also calm down your anxiety. You should discuss with your doctor on the above tests and treatment option. I remain at your disposal for any further questions whenever you need.
