My thigh muscle won't. stop. twitching. What is wrong with me???
My inner thigh near my knee has been twitching(visible through the skin) like a mad man for about 3 days now. It's not constant, but it's happening really often. Twitching more than not twitching. Its going on hour 2 or 3 straight right now. What causes this??
There are a lot of different reasons for this from dietary to stress related. If you consumed extra caffeine or stood up for periods of time longer than you usually do, that could cause it was well. It's actually more common than you think, however, if it continues for days you may want to see your physician to make sure the cause is not neurological.
I know it's a weird thing, but odds are it will go away fairly soon.
Huh, I didn't think of it until I saw your post, and then remembered that all last week my thigh was twitching... only my left one, and higher up than yours, I think. But it was off and on for several days, last one being a few days ago. Now I'm worried about HYPP too. d;
I know this thread is from last OT day, so hopefully you've stopped twitching by now.
I have this happen from time to time. My thigh does it sometimes. A few years ago I had a twitch on my face that wouldn't stop. Luckily it was very small, so you really had to stare closely to see it, but it was annoying as all heck. It was right in my cheekbone area, under my eye. And sometimes my eyeball has twitched.
In addition to all the above (and hopefully it's stopped by now!), tired muscles will twitch (my eye will if it's tired!) and tight muscles in spasm will also twitch (ask me how I know!). Tight muscles in spasm often hurt, but ime they do not always.

You might be dehydrated. As Munchin said, eat a banana, or take a potassium pill. When I was throwing up so much I didn't have an ounce of liquid left in me, my whole body started cramping from dehydration. If it's not that. I don't know.
Also you can take magnesium. It helps relax the muscles. Whereas calcium tightens them up. You can get mag at walmart. I used it for muscle spasms, works. If you take too much you will get the ummm runs. I would start with 1 then try 2 at a time, then 3 max. I usually take at night. Helps alot.
