Body Wide twitching: Diagnosed with C5 Radiculopathy and myo fascial pain Syndrome

Hi. I've had a pretty bad neck pain on the right side just behind the ear for a few weeks which prompted me to see an ENT HNS doctor. After a soft tissue ultrasound and a cervical CT Scan, I was referred to a Rehab doctor for a straightened cervical lordosis. The rehab doctor did an EMG NCV test and the results indicated that I have partial chronic denervation on my right biceps and deltoid muscle. He recommended 6 sessions of rehab and stated it was a C5 radiculopathy. Im currently on my third session and i'll see him once all the 6 sessions are done. Just after the CT scan though I have been having muscle twitches all over my body. The ENT doctor prescribed prednisone but I only took it for 5 days. It started with a cramp on the right left calf and for 3 consecutive days, I woke up with  cramps. Then the body twitching started. both feet, back of the legs, abdominal area, arms, fingers.. It mostly happens on the right side of my body and mostly noticeable when in bed. Though I still feel it as I sit on my station at work. Has anyone experienced body wide twitching with cervical radiculopathy? I really hope there are others who can share their stories if there's anyone on here that had the same thing. 



  • Mystified, To begin with there are no “ medical professionals “ on this site as well as rules preventing us giving advice. BUT in my own experience cord compression can cause whole body symptoms depending where the cord is compressed at. MY spinal specialist ordered all the correct test to PROPERLY diagnose and treat the problems. I’m sorry we’re not able to give advice. Please keep us posted.....David
