I want to ask why so many times my legs have been twitching for almost 2 weeks, sometimes in the thighs, soles of the feet, calves or sometimes other parts of the body. I want to be sitting or standing and lying down. Then I also often feel like there is an earthquake (the body moves on its own) what other people say is normal. Thank you

Hi Risda, thank you for visiting HealthReplies.com.

Twitch is a condition in which there is an involuntary and reflex muscle movement. Twitch in the legs can be caused by several underlying conditions, such as:

Deficiency of vitamins, such as vitamin B The presence of anxiety and stress disorders Excess muscle activity that causes fatigue The presence of certain neurological diseases, such as Amyotropic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Side effects of consuming certain foods or drinks, such as caffeine. While complaints of body swaying or the sensation of dizziness and floating can lead to vertigo symptoms. Vertigo is a condition where there is a disturbance in the balance organs in the ear and the balance center in the brain, both peripherally and centrally. The following are some of the causes that cause vertigo, such as Meniere's disease, labyrinthitis, brain tumors.

To get the right treatment, you need to see a neurologist so that an in-depth interview of your complaint will be conducted and an in-person physical examination or a special neurological examination will be carried out. In addition, the doctor may also carry out supporting examinations as a consideration for making a diagnosis, for leg twitches such as electromyelography (EMG) and blood tests as well as for a floating sensation using an MRI or CT-Scan test. Meanwhile, there are some tips to reduce your complaints, such as:

Adequate rest, 8-9 hours per day Regular exercise Avoid stress-triggering factors Avoid caffeine, cigarettes, and alcohol consumption Avoid doing activities that are too strenuous using the leg muscles. Hope it is useful.
