Hi everyone. First of all I would like to apologize in advance if I am wasting anyone's time.
I'm a 27 year old male, I have been experiencing some symptoms over the last 2 weeks that I would like some advice on to see if this sounds familiar to anyone. I did contact my doctor who said to come see him only if symptoms get worse or don't go away but while looking for relief methods I stumbled on ALS and MS info and truthfully I am quite anxious.
Been having an issue with left leg discomfort when sitting down. Its a very mild feeling, not a lot of pain but I feel a deep tightness that isn't really a painful cramp but that muscle feels like its tight, but it isnt, motion and stuff is normal. After about 2 months like that I got a very long and erratic muscle twitch on my left calf that lasted about 15 seconds. It went away but over the last week I've been having twitches in multiple areas in my body, but the most of them occur on my left side. Twitches occur in my Calves, Quads, hamstrings, buttocks, arms and back near my shoulder blades, and also in my abdomen near my ribcage.
I've also felt very mild cramping in my left calf and both arms that goes away with light stretching but come back once in while. I call it cramps because I don't have a way to describe it. My arms feel kind of like a mild tightness and discomfort. Been feeling a bit of pain in the arch of my left foot and ankle when I walk or do stuff sometimes.
The twitches are not constant, or don't last longer than maybe 5 seconds, and goes away if I move that muscle.
Most of them are just one hard twitch and then it's gone.
But it happens during the whole day, mostly when I'm at rest, and happens occasionaly every few hours or so.
In terms of weakness I haven't failed at doing anything I do On a daily basis, although my left side muscles feel more sore after a workout than my right. Amount of weight lifted is not any different.
Now for the last two days I have also been experiencing some strange internal trembling in my arms when I wake up in the morning. It cannot be seen but I feel it in both arms and it goes away when I get up and move about to start my day.
Once again, I apologize for any inconvenience here. Just wanted to know if any of this sounds familiar or whether I should push my GP for an exam or something. Thanks to all!
If this was anything serious would anything else have come up in 2 weeks?
I totally regret my first google search on twitches because ever since seeing stuff about ALS I have been completely freaked out and restless.
