My twitching goes away with my other symptoms and were one of the first things back when I dealt with Lyme the second time around.

The Lyme bacteria live in the muscle and nerve cells, and use up the magnesium that we need for all enzyme processes.

This deficit leads to twitching and many other symptoms common in Lyme patients.

The Importance of Magnesium to Human Nutrition
http://www.mbschachter.com/importance_of_magnesium_to_human.htm

When buying magnesium, look at the list of ingredients. Don't bother getting the mag oxide, it's more difficult to absorb.

This one is good:
Source Naturals Ultra-Mag
Magnesium (as magnesium citrate, taurinate, malate, glycinate and succinate)

I have relapsed several times and often I have periods of time with no symptoms accept for muscle twitching.

I have always taken lots of magnesium and it doesn't make a difference.

When I asked my doctor if symptom free included no twitching he said yes.

I'll be interested to see what others say about this.

I take magnesium all the time and the twitching never ends. I've yet to have any successful treatment that would eliminate it. In fact, it only gets worse.

The twitching also comes with involuntary movements.

I have had muscle twitching (primarily my calf muscles) for 5 years----my doc thinks LD & Babs are gone but Bart still alive & well.

Lot of posts on here about muscle twitches & bart----clearly Bart & LD can both cause twitches. Magneisum has never helped me.

Mine are different now that I am on rifampin----been on it & Doxy for 6 weeks---twitches seem less intense & don't seem to last as long.

I have my fingers crossed---twitches & burning skin are nasty. Good luck.
