First of all thank you for creating this forum for everyone. I plan on seeing a doctor but I just wanted to know if I am worrying too much about some thing I shouldn’t worry about. I take lithium and Zyprexa for my bipolar and recently I started to have some muscle twitching with a minor bout of muscle weakness. I can still stand on my toes and after checking through the other symptoms I don’t believe I have anything else. I’m 41 years old. I also notice some hypnic jerks when I fall asleep. I was reading in the forum that muscle twitching is typically not a symptom of ALS until much later. I have also been known to worry a lot about the worst happening. The symptoms have persisted for about two weeks and they are not as strong now as they were before. The twitching is typically all over my body with little tiny blips that occur a few times every hour. When should I be concerned and what other symptoms should I be looking out for just in case? Thank you in advance for your answers.
