A muscle in my right arm (I think it's the tricep) keeps twitching. Beginning to piss me off! :|
<<<Insert Obligatory "STOP MASTURBATING SO MUCH!" joke here>>>
it happens to me once in awhile too dunno why
Haha that can't be the problem cause I'm a left hander!
Had this as well, you should get a roll of tums (with calcium) and eat a bunch. This can be caused by a calcium defiancy. Mine (was my left tricep) did not go away for about a week straight, and was driving me crazy, but eventually stopped. Other things could cause this, but eat some tums, and give it a few days, if still doing it after a week, I'd go see a doc.
A week? :Q
It's been like 20 mins and it's driving me crazy already . I take a daily multivitamin, although I'm not sure how much calcium is in it. Lately I haven't eaten that well and besides the vitamin I don't think I have been getting that much calcium. Maybe that's the problem. My mom has some muscle relaxers at home, that would probably work too?
It is probably a potassium deficiency than a calcium one.
I notice I get that when I'm dehydrated sometimes.
Calcium and potassium are also cited.
eat a bannana
doh meant potassium sorry heh
Considering i just spent the last 6 months going through a nutrition class i would say its a combination of all 3. feed your sarcomers some nutritents and water and you should be fine.
DO NOT TAKE ANY MUSCLE RELAXERS. you are not having a spasm or hard core cramp.
Maybe you have had a curse placed upon you?
Is there music playing? If so, turn it off...does your arm stop?
You are mutating!
That sort of thing happened to me when I was in 7th grade or something.. head muscles started to twitch for no reason. I eventually figured out how to control them and now can move my ears!
That happens to me just before Dr. Moonbeam becomes Mr. Fullmoon.
Thanks for the advice
A. Your pottasium/sodium balance is off, causing a minor nerve short circuit
B. A nerve is getting pinched somewhere in your back and you just need to see a chiropractor
Calcium in a multivitamin is completely worthless. They just use it as filler, and is made of calcium carbonate which is virtually chalk. In fact, when I take vitamins I make sure to take mostly water soluable vitamins and minerals (since they only last about 2 days in the body, where as all the fat soluables are stored for a very long time) and I take a seperate calcium supplement (non-carbonate).
Sleep deficiency can cause this too.
This tricep-twitching thing was bugging me for about 20 minutes straight; I read through this thread and seeing dehydration was a possible cause I drank some water and the twitching immediately stopped. Whaaaat.
Hello New person!!!
Goodbye, New person!
We'll miss you.
I used to get that every now and then but it's been a while, I think too much caffeine and/or sugar can do it. Been a long time since I've had it happen, and I don't drink as much pop as I used to, so it might be related.
I'm sorry, it's lupus.
Look into Albion mineral chelates; they are excellent and highly bioavailable. Also make sure to get enough vitamin D3, A and K2 to further absorption.
I agree with the general consensus that the OP is likely deficient in one or all of these electrolytes: potassium, calcium, magnesium, sodium and chloride.... also B vitamins such as B12 or possibly dehydration.
So....did it stop yet?
