    Random muscle twitching

    There's a cluster of muscle fibers on my left quadricep that randomly starts twitching on its own. It occurs periodically throughout the day (not necessarily while I'm working out) and I have absolutely no control over it. Each time it might twitch 4-5 times in quick succession. I can physically see the area of the muscle move when it occurs. It doesn't hurt (kinda tickles actually).

    Does anyone know what this might be and if I should be overly worried?

    Thanks!

    It could be sign of overtraining (stress on the cns). how often do you workout? Do you use high volume and/or high intesity? When is the last time you took a break?

    I get that too, it comes and goes throughout the year. Nothing to worry about, but a little annoying.

    My shoulder does that, my chiropractor says it's from a lack of fiber.

    I tend to do legs twice a week and generally I shoot for higher reps than heavier weight. My last leg day was 3 days ago and I'm contemplating skipping one of my leg days this week to give the quads a break.

    I had that happen alot when I was younger, and I worked out to much. I'm not sure if I grew out of it, or if getting on a better workout program where I wasn't burning muscle or doing to much isolation helped. There is probably a medical explanation for it, I always chalked it up to growing pains when I was younger, and to "what the heck is going on" when I was a little older. I just remember it now that you bring it up, so it's probably been a couple years now at least.

    I get this occasionally.

    I see zero correlation between this and overtraining. This happens to my brother who doesn't lift.

    It's normal.

    I it is however medically proven that it is a side effect of mental stress in some patients. You can suffer from mental stress when your cns is overworked from overtraining.

    Common Causes

    * Benign twitches (not caused by disease or disorders)
    o Often affecting the eyelids, calf, or thumb
    o Normal and quite common, often triggered by stress or anxiety
    * A diet deficiency
    * Drug overdose (caffeine)
    * Drug side effect (such as diuretics, corticosteroids and estrogens)
    * Exercise

    Ive had twitches for years... they come and they go for me. I saw a doctor around 1999 when i first started getting them. He informed me that they were benign fasculations. I get them in my legs, back of my arms, calves and forearms. The more you pay attention to it the worst it becomes.

    This is a quote from the fibromyalgia symptoms website:

    What Causes Muscle Twitching?
    Muscle twitches happen when the nerves inside of your body begin to fire involuntarily. In order for you to move your muscles, a series of electronic impulses are fired along nerve pathways in your body. This stimulates muscle contraction and relaxation. Muscle twitches occur when a particular nerve fires an impulse unexpectedly. As a result, your muscle twitches compulsively. Some possible causes of muscle twitches include:


    muscle fatigue
    muscle strain or injury
    emotional stress or anxiety
    certain medications
    caffeine
    nervous system disorder

    I have this right now actually except in my lower abdomen. I went to two doctors to make sure, and they both said the same thing. I forget what term they used, but it's just caused from stressing a muscle. It will go away in 1-2 weeks. I've had mine for a week and it's almost gone. It was really annoying and kinda nerve racking when you don't know what it is. I even had a hard time getting to sleep at night. Anyway, nothing to worry about.Hope this helps.

    Same thing happens to me, my right shoulder. I think it may be because of overtraining (4 days on, 1 day off, low reps/high weight)

    I keep telling myself that its not serious as I dont want to skip a day....w/ that being said its prolly a good idea that I take a few days off soon. Good luck guys!

    This is caused because the body, for whatever reason, is keeping that muscle too close to its activation potential. It happens a lot in professional athletes because their body is so used to work that it is essentially always ready to work. The body is always sending a weak signal to your muscles and for some reason it is sending just a little too strong of a signal to that grouping of fibers.

    It can be caused by taking in CNS stimulants like caffeine or Ephedra also. Don't worry about it unless it becomes worse or starts causing problems. I get it a lot when I skip a few workouts because my body (brain) is expecting to work so it is activating the signal... No physical issue to worry about usually when not accompanied by other symptoms.

    Alright is wasn't easy to find info to back this up by just googling muscle twitching.....But I have heard before that Muscle Twitching , for bodybuilders, is a good thing!!!! It is a good sign !!!! So don't freak out....be happy about it... I wish I could remember all the info I got on the subject a few years ago but it is definitely good and means your muscles are in good shape!!!! ....continue to try and research this as I will and hopefully repost on here...I handle stress very well, my muscles have been growing extremely well these past few years and I am now actually a pretty big guy....when I was smaller only some of my larger muscles would twitch ..(when I was growing well) but now I get twitching even in my upper back muscles and chest and shoulders and triceps...it feels great! I am almost 100% positive it is a great sign for a bodybuilder....will update soon
    All excitements good or bad must be harnessed, kept under control, stored, and channelled in the proper direction. Lest we lose site of our blessings, our purpose, and the bigger picture. Take a deep breath, focus, have faith, and move forward.

    I get quadricep twitching from time to time, sometimes my quad on the inside just above the knee will twitch, it can last for a couple of hours or sometimes a day, the most likely cause is the caffiene in creatine coupled and heavy lifting. It often occurs the day after doing supersets. Unless it never goes away or it is painful, probably nothing to see the doc about.

    I sometimes get that in my eye, twitching eyelid. Nothing to worry about, prob too much stress in your life or not enough of sleep.
