Hi, I'm Kallie. I wanted to say thank you, I was feeling quite desperate earlier on from lack of sleep due to muscle twitches every night. I fractured T6 and 7 back in 1992 and for years have had what I call a hunch - recently discovered they are compacted discs in my neck. I fell at the end of 2013 - on my coccyx down some stairs and I think that triggered the twitches. I have fortunately (until now, that is) never had much pain in my back or neck despite the old injuries but since Christmas I have developed weakness in my arms and hands, pain in wrists, shoulders, elbows and neck and upper back as well as inflammation in fingers, wrists and arms. But for me the muscle twitches are the worst because I can't get any sleep. My doctor tested all sorts of things and said it was my thyroid and put me on Ethyrox, and prescribed Celebrex for pain (which didn't have any affect at all). She looked at me like I was a nut when I described the twitching which at that time was limited to my chest and upper arms. I had to go out of town and the pain was so bad in my neck I had to see another doctor there who prescribed Vimovo (also didn't have any affect) and she also didn't know what I was on about regarding the twitching. I was reading "Hands Of Light" by Barbara Brennan and in there she mentions a patient who fell on his coccyx and then developed weakness, pain and inflammation in his wrists so that's when I realised a chiropractor might have an answer. I found a good one but he worried me a little because he said that I would either have a "miraculous healing" or he wouldn't be able to help me and I would struggle. I am trying to stay positive (working towards my miraculous healing of course) but it is difficult when I am so tired and freaked out about the twitching (which tonight moved down to my stomach, butt and thighs as well.) which is why I am still awake at 4am! However, finding this website and reading so many past posts about muscle twitching and spasms has made me feel much better. It is just good to know I am not alone and not losing my marbles. I will try the magnesium as suggested. Thank you all. I'm sure I will be able to get some sleep now.
