Wriggly muscles

Hi, Every day this last week or two, I have noticed that, in the evening when I am relaxing, I have a feeling like a wriggling worm in the sole of my foot. It’s been every night, I don’t know when it starts in the day but I don’t notice it until the evening in bed, and it happens constantly until I drop off to sleep. I’m pretty certain it’s a muscle “quivering”. I am sat relaxed now and I don’t feel it, so it may be an evening thing, or it may be gone. Anyone else exoerienced this? Leah :slight_smile:

Hello :slight_smile: I’ve had strange skin sensations that feel like wriggling. My muscles get jumpy or twitchy in the evening. Very odd x

Yes, I get this feeling. It’s weird, isn’t it? I, too, get it more in the evening and in bed at night. I’m afraid I can’t give you any pearls of wisdom or remedies, but wanted you to know you’re not alone. I’m not dx, by the way, but have “undiagnosed multiple neurological symptoms”…I’m pretty sure this is just another one of those! I’m not sure of your situation, but if this is a new symptom then it’s worth making a note of it and mentioning it next time you see your Neuro/GP/MS Nurse…

Urgh. I have this. Gp called it fasciculations. I have them in my leg muscles when I’m at rest. More noticeable at night because I’m not moving. So annoying. Feels like my muscles are doing a Mexican wave lol

Hi all, I am so embarassed because I did not remember I had written this post! I knew I’d decided to but had completely forgotten. Now more worried about my faculties than the muscles! So it sounds like it might be a relatively common thing then? The descriptions you all give sound about right. My face has been doing it today, but the foot has settled down the last few days… think my body is nuts!
