thats like me all the time
the way i see it, dyspraxia is an extra hurdle in every race i run, but that extra hurdle, is just extra exercise, so in the end, i will come through stronger.

I seem to get two types of twitching/shaking. The most obvious is jerkey movements in my muscles especially my fingers, I've been to see a neurologist about this and after an MRI and a blood test he concluded that whatever it was doesn't seem to be damaging me. He said it could be linked to my dyspraxia.

The second is just the normal kind of shaking from exerting myself, but unfortunately frequentl especially when I have to aply force to something. This, combined with a very untoned apearence and low stamina, can only be explained by extreme unfitness. I think this is unfair since I get 3-6 hours excercise a week, and many far fitter pepole do none. Deep down though, I know it's my own faut... :P

If your leg is shaking it's known as RLS (Restless Leg Syndrome) very common and I had it severely as a side effect of antidepressants.

It could just be that you're anxious. I know my anxious friend always has a tremor. Try breathing exercises or if it really bothers you Beta Blockers such as Propanolol from the doctor are extremely effective. Perhaps you should talk to a physician.

Occasionally my leg starts shaking when I stretch. I also seem to have a twitch which would be comparable to if someone touched you with ice in the centre of the upper back.

Shockingly, for no apparent reason sometimes I have these huge muscle twitches or shakes, in the upper body.People normally notice but take it lightly, or joke and say 'Has somebody been walking over your grave?' . Thankfully though they only last for around 3 seconds !!! :roll:

I get exactly the same thing as LadyAnna, i have realised that it is caused by heat change, generally when i get cold, i also get shivers down my spine regularly.

I get sudden, noticeable twitches in my upper body too that last for less than 5 seconds. Sometimes it's related to a drop in temperature but, more often, they have no known cause.

My fingers perpetually twitch a little. As I become tired, the muscles become fatigued, or I am under stress this twitching becoumes much worse. It seldome spreads past my wrist anymore but occasionally does spread to my forarm where it can become quite painful if it causes both sides to contract at the same time (bu this point I have little or no contol over my fingers) and I have to focus alot of attention on calming it down. It hasn't spread past my elbow in years. It's less noticable in my other muscles, but it affects all of them. The neurologist said it will get better over the years as I learn to overide it but that stress will always cause it to resurface. As a result, I've noticed it more in the last few weeks.
