Muscle Twitch
Whatsup Doc:) I have had a very irritating muscle twitch in my left tricep since Thurday evening. It just jumps exactly like those eyebrow twitches people often get and looks like there is something living inside my arm. Freaky!

I gym regularly including 4 days of quite heavy weight training and I am very concerned because my arm feels like it hasnt rested since the twitch started and my strength has gone down at gym.

I have tried stretching the muscle but the problem persists no matter what I try. Please help.

Dear Dawie
Try taking some extra calcium and Magnesium and a once off dose of muscle relaxant like Adcodol ( 2 tablets) if you are not allergic to anything.
