Okay, this is going to sound just weird, but tonight there is a small area about the size of a quarter on the back, lower right side of my head that is ticking (not the sound, just the sensation). That's the only way I can explain it. It will tick for five or ten minutes, then stop for awhile, then resume.
When I told my husband what was going on, he looked at me like I was nuts! I just hope my head doesn't explode like a bomb! (Just kidding, of course.)
This whole thing just gets weirder and weirder!
I was just trying to explain exactly what you had, I think. It came on suddenly, instead of a ticking I explained it like a fuzzy sensation times a thousand, in my head, gave me the impression i may pass out, needed to steady myself and remind myself to breathe because I got so scared, and as suddenly as it came on, it was gone. Does that sound like what you had? I need to remember to write it down in my symptom book to show my neuro in July.
I've just googled " muscle twitching multiple sclerosis" and found heaps of sites that I found interesting. The "ticking' that I get sounds really similar to some of the posts here. The sites on a whole say it's pretty common in MS patients, and names specific types. Fasciculations, myokymia...... something about it being the spontaneous release of an axon, causing the contraction....... thought you guys may be interested in looking it up too.
I've just seen my neuro and mentioned the muscle twitches, he proceeded to tell me that they are not a symptom of MS????????? (Which is what prompted my googling).
Getting another MRI on Wednesday, so will keep you posted.
