    twitching tricep

    My tricep near my elbow has been fluttering for the past 2 weeks. This usually is a sign of fatigue and usually goes away. I get them sometimes in my shoulder after a hard training day. But this one has been doing it for 2 weeks and I have trouble falling asleep. I asked my buddies who work out and they also get them too but they usually go away. My arm doesn't hurt at all, its just annoying. Anyways I was wondering when you guys get it what do you do to make it go away or less annoying. Thanks!

    I get them too; in fact, I just had my annual physical and asked my doctor about them. He said they're called Benign Fasciculations and they are quite common, especially in people whom exercise. He did a complete Neurological work-up on me and as long as they are not associated with loss of muscle control or extreme weakness they are nothing serious.

    There are some things you can try, such as magnesium, calcium, hot baths; but according to him it's pretty much time that makes these go away. They can last days, weeks, even months in some cases.

    I know, annoying I had one in my left pec once for a couple of months and it was irritating as hell.

    Yep, I just kept working out; it just took awhile to go away, that's all.

    It'll subside eventually, may take a bit of time though so hang in there. I've seen other threads about this and it's quite common.

    I know I've just bumped a 5 year old thread, but I wanted to say thanks for the post, I've had this annoying twitching above the elbow for 2 weeks now and was getting concerned

    I have had this exact thing going on for a week. Like others have said, it's quite annoying. I am taking the week off from upper body and focusing on legs and cardio. I am hoping this will help it go away faster. Fingers crossed.
