Hi Rena,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Generally, those who often experience twitching are the parts of the body that often experience movement, for example the eyes, hands, feet, and so on. However, it is not impossible that twitching occurs in the head, as you are experiencing right now.


Twitch in the back of the head can occur due to the following reasons:


Muscle fatigue, for example if you often do activities with your head upright and stiff for a long time. This stiffness can be felt not only in the neck, but up to the head
Excessive emphasis on the side of the back of the head, for example if you sleep on your back too much, especially using a hard sleeping pad

Migraine, which is a throbbing primary headache, especially dominant on one side of the head, occurs due to vascular phenomena that trigger inflammation in the brain
Cerebral aneurysm (abnormal bulge in a brain blood vessel that is prone to rupture)
Disorders of certain electrolyte or vitamin balance (eg magnesium, calcium, potassium, B vitamins)
Tension headache
Cluster headache

Hypertension (high blood pressure)
Hypercholesterolemia (high blood cholesterol)
Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar)
Dehydration (lack of fluids)
Nerve disorders, such as a pinched nerve
Skin infections around the head and neck (for example, herpes zoster or post herpetic neuralgia)
Psychosomatic disorders, and so on

Try to overcome the twitching feeling first through initial treatment efforts as follows:

Avoid excessive pressure on the sides of the neck and back of the head, for example by choosing the right bedding and pillows, struggling to change sleeping positions
Also avoid excessive tension in the neck and head muscles, for example by not sitting too much upright or bending too much, not "breaking the neck" until it makes a crack

Regular exercise, for example aerobic exercise, yoga
Avoid stress
Compress the area of ​​the head that is twitching with warm water
Control your blood pressure and cholesterol
Drink and eat enough

However, if you feel that the complaint is getting worse in 1 to 3 days, you should check with your doctor directly so that further evaluation is done.


I hope this helps.
