Strange spasms Posted By Spasmman Date : 15-Apr-08
I've had these spasms for as long as I can remember. They happen a couple of times per week. I will get the feeling my arm or foot will move, I even have the image in my mind then it happens like a second later, a brief but completely uncontrollable spasm.
It usually happens when I'm not doing anything particularly physical. Lately, I've noticed it happening while trying to fall asleep at night. One leg will suddenly jump, then nothing for a couple days until it happens again.
I'm not particularly concerned, but I've always wondered what this was exactly.
For reference, I have no other physical condition. I do tend to have a bit of the shakes but it only shows when trying to take photos or trying to draw. There's a history of heart disease and Alzheimer in my family though, if it is of any relevance.
