My pinky finger on one hand and my thumb on the other twitched a good bit off and on for probably a year or more. It still twitches from time to time; but much improved. It can be very annoying to say the least.

I can also relate to the twitching.

My most annoying has been in the eyelids, can last for a week or so.

Also get random locations - believe it or not, magnesium seems to make mine worse temporarily and then I see improvement.

Oddly enough, the twitching can be persistent for a few weeks and then go away for a few months.

This is my least intolerable neurological symptom!

I had one of my toes twicth for several days.

I have had twitching in all kinds of spots.

Like MBB3, most annoying is when it is on my eyelid.

Bicillin shots have greatly reduced these symptoms for me. But when I first started the shots, I was twitching all over the place!

But, since it doesn;t hurt, honeslty, I wish this was the worst problem I had....

I had twitching on the right side of my face around my mouth area. I kept thinking it was a prelude to bells palsy, but never had that. It lasted for years, but has improved greatly after a year and a half of treatment.

I have had twitching all over my body for about 5 months. I was diagnosed with RMSF,Erlich and still waiting to get a solid test of lyme but I pray its that and not an ALS. I am 32yr old and the last 5 months have made me feel like I am dying. Its scary I agree but keep the faith, pray to GOD and don't give up ! I have numbness in my fingertips in the last week. It seems a bit weird ? Anyone seen this ? Numbness for a few days after heavy use of a arm,leg etc?

I have been twitching to varying degrees for 3 years. Some things help, some don't...but I am still fully functional. It is easy to get scared about these things, but try no to...

I'm right handed, my right side seems to be the worst affected and yes, definitely worse after activity.

I took a week off abx (not intentionally) and my first day back, after being fairly active the previous week, the outside of my right arm, right leg and the right side of my face were numb on the surface after I woke up from my afternoon exhaustion nap. Kinda got my attention.

If you don't over do it, being active helps, but its easy to over do it and not find out until the next day.

I agree w/Richard...twitching can also be due to low magnesium levels.

Ah, I had migrating twitches for a while. Twitches would come for a few weeks, and leave for a few months. I went to the doctor for them before when it was over my eye because it was annoying the crap out of me for weeks. She did nothing and just called me crazy for coming to the doctor for a benign twitch.

As long as the twitch isn't hurting (like a severe muscle spasm), I wouldn't worry. Take magnesium. If that doesn't work (it didn't always work for me), your twitches will probably migrate or be gone within a couple weeks.

I called them annoying migratory fasciculations. I haven't had them since early treatment, but had them a lot before treatment.

Yes YAMB do not worry, it sounds like you are like the rest of us, a bad lyme case! Not ALS.

My twitches will not go away despite aggressive IV-treatment and orals for 3 years and supplementing Magnesium and B12.......

This disease can really make u suicidal with the never ending symtpms. Other symptoms do improve . But not the twitching.

My muscles are strong though - so no ALS.
