Overcoming Muscle Twitches That Occur Continuously?
Halo..gini, so in the last few days I have experienced muscle twitching in the butt area, the gluteus maximus area, and it hasn’t stopped for nearly a week … why is that?
Thank you for the question.
Muscle twitching of the buttocks can be reasonable due to nerve function or blood vessels that are temporarily interrupted, such as due to excessive stress, physical activity is too heavy, consuming too much caffeinated drinks or energy drinks, also stress or excessive anxiety. However, in some cases, it can also be twitch buttocks as you feel is related to a disease, such as dehydration, drug abuse, electrolyte balance disorders, epilepsy, nerve disorders, metabolic disorders, psychological disorders, and so on.
Depending on the cause, your condition can be mild, but it can also require further treatment from a doctor. Although the cause is unclear, if this condition lasts more than 3 days, you should not underestimate it. Go directly to your doctor or neurologist for a neurological examination, blood test, and other supporting tests if necessary. The treatment that the doctor will give later will be adjusted to the cause of your twitch.
In the meantime, what can be done is:
Warm compresses on your buttocks, or soak in warm water. Don't use tight pants, high heels, and narrow shoes. Exercise enough for once every 1-3 days, with a duration ranging from 30-60 minutes. Increase your intake of vegetables and fruits, especially those containing vitamin B complex, calcium, potassium, and magnesium. Manage your emotions properly.
