I just had something that felt like a muscle twitch, but it was on my head, under my hair. I could feel something jumping if I put my fingers on the spot... I'm just worried it was a vein or something, and not a muscle twitch. It was just slightly above and behind the top of my ear, about 4 or 5 finger-widths back from my hair line. Are there muscles there?

Yes I have had this so I know it is possible. Don't know what it is but was one of those many many symptoms that was attributed to "anxiety" before my lyme diagnosis.

I have these also - but not just on my scalp. I am currently taking meds to help slow muscle spasms.
I also get the feeling of someone running an ice cube up my scalp, in lighting bolt pattern - if that makes any sense to anyone other than me! =)

As always, get checked out - but it could easily be no more than muscle spasms.

Be well,
Trav

Taveler- I used to get muscle spasms everywhere as well, but they have improved a lot and almost gone away, thankfully. And I get the same ice cube feeling! Your description is exactly what it feels like. And I get the same thing, but with a burning sensation as well.

I just wasn't sure what muscles were up there. :-)

Nicky,

I'm sorry you have to deal with that. This disease is so weird:/

Hi Nicky!
I get those burning & just warm feelings as well. Unfortunately I had to grow up with "odd" feelings.

I am currently searching for a new LLMD, as mine - bless his soul - has passed away. Unfortunate, too, as he made man, many great contributions to LD research.
