I do not have MS, and apologize in advance for posting in this section with stupid questions, but thought I may be able to get some helpful information from people who know what they are talking about.
about a month and a half ago I started experiencing random muscle twitches. These occur everyday, on and off throughout the day. They don't happen to just a specific area, they are random and all over my body. I really don't have any other signs, but I have read so much about MS and muscle twitching that I'm wondering if I should be concerned. I saw a neurologist who did a typical neurological strength exam. He said it was fine...no weakness, etc., and he doesn't think I need any tests. The thing is, I started taking an SSRI (Zoloft) about a month before the twitching began. I have heard this MIGHT be a side effect, but it's impossible to know if this is why and be 100% sure.
I'm wondering how muscle twitching presents itself with MS, and if I should be overly concerned. I'm considering requesting some kind of test from my doctor, but not even sure what kind. EMG? MRI?
Again, I'm sorry to post here but am hoping somebody might have some good input. Please share your thoughts!
