Hi!

Hi. I have been very concerned about my recent symptoms. 2months ago, my body jerked a lot and, they felt like they were over- sensitive. I ignored those symptoms. However, the next day, my legs began to twitch. It began with the place right above my both knees twitching uncontrollably and visibly. That spread out to my butt, feet, and legs. My face, tongue, arms, and torso also twitch occasionally. But, my legs twitch the most. I went to my doctor, and my doctor noted “a bit of hyperreflexia in lower extrem . I saw that twitching+hyperreflexia means something serious. I twitch every 2-3mins. I have some questions. My blood work all came out normal. I am so sorry that I have so many questions.
1) I read that twitching alone means nothing. A little bit of brisk reflexes alone alone means nothing. Is twitching+hyperreflexia in lower limbs concerning?
2) Is als twitches visible?
3) Do als twitches stop when you move that area?
4) Are there any other diseases that cause hyperreflexia and twitching?
5) How does the tongue twitch feels like? Mine feels like someone is pricking my tongue with something from the bottom of my tongue.

Thank you so much for reading this.
