Muscle Twitching/Spasms - please help!

Hello everyone,

I've been experiencing muscle twitching all over my body for the past 2-3 years. They feel like bubbles or things crawling under my skin and they happen more frequently when I have lots of gas. Sometimes the twitching stays in one place and doesn't stop for hours. At first I though it was a side effect I was getting from Zantac, but I've been off Zantac for months and I still get muscle spasms! What kind of doctor should I see for this problem? Could this be a neurological condition? How do I make these annoying spasms stop?? They're SO ANNOYING!

I also suffer from SIBO, eosinophilia, autoimmune thyroiditis/hashimoto's, interstitial cystitis and heart PVC's/PAC's. Could these conditions cause muscle spasms?

Could my muscle spasms be causing my PVCs/PACs? I never had PVCs/PACs before I started having spasms.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Start maybe with a Chiropractor, sometimes muscle spasms and twitching are due to pinched nerves or misaligned vertebrae, I know mine are, I have them, and my chiro is usually able to help.

I also suffer from SIBO, eosinophilia, autoimmune thyroiditis/hashimoto's, interstitial cystitis and heart PVC's/PAC's. Could these conditions cause muscle spasms?

They could be, that question could be better answered by your doctor.

Yes, sometimes muscle spasms can cause PAC's and PVC's. they, in themselves, are a form of muscle twitching, after all, the heart is a big muscle. Again, a doctor or even a cardiologist can answer this better, I am just answering from my past experiences.

Thank you so much for your response. I asked my PCP and she said it could be related to magnesium deficiency and that I should start taking supplements (my magnesium level is on the low end of normal).

I am currently seeing a chiropractor for unrelated reasons. It seems to help my other problems, but it doesn't seem to do much for my muscle spasms. We haven't actually discussed my muscle spasms. Do I need to specifically ask my chiropractor about my muscle spasms?
