Hi guys. Does anybody else have constant aggressive muscle twitching. Its driving me mad. The twitches can be anywhere in my body, hands, feet, legs, shoulder blades, back, stomach, i even had one in my ear!

They are sometimes slow and tichten up, other times very fast shudder of the muscle like its being tazered.

Is this a lyme symptom? im not diagnosed yet. I know its not a neurological disease as i have seen 2 neuros and they say no to anything like that going on as i dont have any weakness etc.

I do have other lyme like symptoms, waiting to see LLMD

Yes, I have a positive blood test. My muscles twitch like crazy, especially in my face under my right eye, and in my legs. It can happen anywhere though, but I have noticed since being on high doses of antibiotics the twitching has diminished by about 70%.

Lyme can be neurological. It can attack any part of your body, some bacteria may attack the joints, some may go to the brain. It is different for everyone but this IS a symptom of lyme.

I was diagnosed last year with Lyme and muscle twitching is one of my main symptoms. It really does drive ya crazy, huh? My twitches can sometimes be so bad that they wake me in the middle of the night!

I get some wicked twitches in my left shoulder blade/neck area. Doc said this was a Babesia thing. Have you been tested for that?

You can take Organic Apple Cider Vinegar to help with the muscles - dosing is 1-2 tsp + 1 tsp honey or agave in 1/4 cup WARM water 3x's a day...

Also consuming at least a teaspoon of mustard 3 x's a day or a tsp of pickle juice 3x's a day can also help with the muscle twitching...they both have acetic acid - which helps the body to produce acetylcholine which can help with the signals to the muscles...

Also, need to be on a good Magnesium supplement to help with the muscle twitching too...

I take magnesium shots weekly. I was doing them myself but I was bruising so badly and actually made my leg numb for several months. I go to llmd and she does them. I can do b 12shots. That needle is little. Magnesium shots hurt and are 22g needle. It does help though
