Twitching all over body

Hi there! I had a C2 C4 fusion along with a C3 corpectomy back in December of 2014. My doctor said I would need another surgery to fuse my C5 in the next 5-10 years and he mentioned there was already a bone spur and that was back in 2015 I believe. But I don’t have insurance currently. And I am experiencing all over body twitching, and it is terrifying trying to figure out what the heck is happening. I’m scared it’s some wild thing like ALS, but I’m only 23. I am hoping honestly it’s just something to do with my neck, so please please pleaseeee comment here if this has occurred for you as well! It’s not contractions, just really small but noticeable movements. Thanks in advance!

  • Hi @landslide__ I too have twitching all over my body. I have felt them virtually everywhere at one point or another and mine range from small, mild ones to absolute visible thumpers!! I have been diagnosed with neck problems in C5/6 area, but apparently very mild, so sounds nothing compared to yours as mine haven’t even been considered for surgical intervention. I have twitched daily for around 2 1/2 years now and had numerous tests which so far have ruled out other nasty disorders including the one you mentioned. I had never experienced twitching before my neck issues.  So in my opinion, my symptoms did start with my neck issue. Hope that helps some.
