I am 38yo African American woman. I am generally in good health with a healthy bmi (23.5), and work out frequently. about a month ago I had localized muscle twitching (upper arm one day, leg another) that lasted for a few days. That stopped and what began is generalized twitches all over. Anytime the body is at rest and awake the twitching starts.
Then, about a week ago, I started getting what I thought was carpal tunnel in both hands. I've had it before and this feels kinda similar, though not the same. My husband is a hand surgeon and thinks it is like not CT because of the pattern of numbness exclusively in the fleshy muscle of my thumb (says likely central nervous system issue). Same day the hands issues began, I felt like my legs and arms were jello and that has been ongoing, thought this part has been a little over a week now. I also have had a loss of appetite for about a week as well. This sound familiar to anyone? Making a neuto appt first thing in the morning.

I must add that I'm a high-anxiety person AND. Have been doing fertility treatments for past few months. However, while hormones can cause all sorts of crazy stuff, none of these are known side effects.
