Default Very worried should i get checked?

Hi all,
A month ago or so I noticed a heavy twitching in my left tricep that didnt stop for a while. It went away but over the last week i have felt random twitches in my quads both triceps and various other areas of my body including neck and face and abdominal areas. Also this morning it felt like my neck did a brief spasm to the right side. Along with this i have had some discomfort in my left arm and the hand has been able to crack at will. same with my left foot. While i havent noticed major weakness yet, i feel extremely fatigued and have been sleeping or lying down non stop.. My main concern has been the twitching it hasnt stopped. Also i was in the doctors and it seemed my balance isnt great. not enough to fall over by any means but its not good.

From your description, a systemic illness such as a primary care physician can diagnose is far more likely.
