I feel my left arm muscle twitching, please advise?
For the past week I have had a muscle twitch in my left rem in between my elbow and my hand. Just comes and goes. No pain or anything. Then goes away. Maybe have it about 2 to 5 times per day. What can it be.
Muscle twitching or muscle fasciculation also called a nervous tick can be a normal reaction to stress, anxiety or dehydration. Or lactic acid buildup in muscles. Eat a balanced diet, drink 6 to 8 glasses of water per day. Reduce coffee. No need to worry unless twitching becomes chronic or exaggerated. If so, your doctor can recommend electrolyte and thyroid tests. MRI and CT scan may be required as well.
