I don't know if this is anxiety or not...
I just feel like I'll lose control of my muscles, like my legs will buckle under me or my legs or arms will start moving involuntarily (like when someone is having a seizure). Or I'll end up in a deformed position that I can't get out of. Would this be nervous-system related?

I recently had an MRI that was fine.

Did you tell your doctor about what is going on when that happens to you?

Good Morning.  These are unusual sx.  May I ask what the MRI was for?  Did your Dr. share with you what he was looking for on an MRI ?

The MRI was for that I was feeling sensitive to light/sound...(I've posted that elsewhere)--how it would make me jump and feel weird sensations down my back and in my head (head feels like tickley inside). I also have TMJ and clench at night; ears feel full, ringing, white noise.
He didnt really tell me what he was looking for...just said it looked normal. I found out from a CT of my neck, that there's a lump on my lymph node but they said it was fine.

Hi- i experience really bad muscular spasms and twitches which i have been told are a side effect of my meds. muscles cramp up as well.  i have episodes of 'distonia' where i cant control the twitching in my body. in my case it is related to the wiring in the nervous system- mine is a bit faulty.

I wish you all the best and wish i could be of more help,
