Am I crazy? There is twitching in my scalp, about an inch above my ear. Does this even make sense? Can we get twitches there? Since I tend to sleep on that side, I swear I can hear them when my head is pressed to the pillow. Have any of you fellow-twitchers had them in your scalp? (note: I am not anxious/scared/worried about this. I have been twitching for 22 months and believe I have felt them in all possible places but this is a new one, and a strange one at that, and I just really want to know if anyone else has experienced this! )

I am also twitching on the scalp. And everywhere else :( (No weakness, no hyper reflexes, no nothing - just annoying twitches for over an year)

I get that too, but only on one side...I wouldn't worry about it at all.

Hi Lydia,
Count me in the "scalpers" group! (Think of it this way....if there is ANY muscle in any part of your body.....it'll twitch eventually :) )

It was jumping like crazy about 2" above my left ear last night, so I hit myself in the head with a hammer to get it to stop. Do you think bad headaches are in any way related to scalp twitching?

Wow, who would have thunk it? In all the conversations that go back and forth about where and how often people twitch... I would have never imagined! Makes me wonder about where else I might twitch....:p

If you have a muscle anywhere, sooner or later it will probably twitch.
