    Should I be worried?

    Hello and thanks in advance for reading this and giving me some direction. I went to my PCP due to muscle twitching. At first, it was all over twitching. Now it seems more centralized, as in the sides of both calves, the back of my thighs, top and bottom of my foot. There are times I will...
