Nerve, Neurological Disorders Causes Muscle and Eye Twitch, Twitches, Twitching Muscles Fasciculations

Who hasn’t observed a little muscle “jumping” under the skin at some point or another. Eye twitching being the most common jump of all.

Fasciculation is just a fancy name for a muscle twitch. And muscle twitches are minor fine motor movement contractions of a muscle.

Twitching muscles are caused by abnormal nerve activity, and fortunately a muscle twitch is usually painless.

Most muscle twitches are harmless and go away without any treatment. For some, muscle twitching may indicate a neurologic disorder is present.

Fasciculations are common if you are experiencing:

  • myopathy
  • muscular dystrophy
  • spinal muscular atrophy
  • ALS ~ Lou Gehrig’s disease
  • chronic spinal cord nerve compression

Other non-neurological condition causes for nerve instigated twitching include:

  • stress
  • caffeine
  • exercise
  • lack of sleep
  • drug overdose
  • diet deficiency
  • overactive thyroid
  • drug side effect ~ diuretics, corticosteroids, estrogens

There is a syndrome of benign (harmless) muscle cramps and fasciculations. This type of muscle or eye twitch doesn’t have any affect on your level of fitness.

Living a lifestyle of healthy eating, exercise, plenty of rest and stress free is your minor twitch way to resolution.
