I am wondering if anyone else here has experienced similar symptoms due to anxiety. For the last year or so, I have been experiencing aggravating muscle twitching. It started with my left lower eyelid last summer, which lasted about a month and seemed to go away when I made a computer monitor change, reduced time at the PC, and reduced stress (I got married around that time).
However, since then I have pretty much had constant leg and foot muscle twitches, sometimes more active than other times. My left leg also seems to be more "active" than my right leg. I believe this has led to bouts of fatigue (for instance, whenever I get sick with a flu or something, I end up having weakness/fatigue for about 2 weeks afterward).
Right now my legs are very sore even though I only had moderate activity today. I have noticed my left leg, particularly the thigh and calf, has been rapidly contracting much more than usual today. I know muscle twitching and fatigue can be symptoms of anxiety, so I wanted to see if others here have experienced this, and if so, were you able to reduce or eliminate it?
I'm a 28 year old male, and while I am overweight, I'm fairly strong as well. I should not feel so weak, and yet at times my legs feel very weak and sore. Yet other times they feel totally fine. For instance, I helped my sister move a week ago and had full strength the whole day and only regular fatigue afterward.
One thing to note is I am dealing with heartburn and am taking 20 mg Omeprazole (i.e. Prilosec) daily. I had a few uncomfortable symptoms for a few days, but I have felt much better and free of those symptoms today (day 5). I am unsure if this drug could have an effect on someone with anxiety related muscle twitching and fatigue or not.
Anyone relate or have advice?
P.S. As a side note, under this forum's anxiety resource section, I clicked on the anxiety symptoms link and was absolutely shocked at the breadth of symptoms anxiety can create. I knew it was long, but my goodness! I haven't been here long, but I find it useful already.
