    Twitching and spasms

    I'm 40-year-old overweight male with GERD, tension headaches and bilateral maxillary sinusitis. I first noticed twitching on my abdomen seven months ago. I was being diagnosed with GERD at that time and described them to my doctor as 'bubbles popping'. He said it was probably gas popping in...
