Muscle twitching
Feb 14, 2001

Hi, I was just wondering what would cause muscle twitching. I never had this before and it started about 2 months ago. I have never had an HIV test. I seem to sometimes get little flutters through out my body every so often, but at night my body actually starts jerking only when i am about to fall asleep. Sometimes it will be my legs, or my arms or just my whole body. Then when I finally fall asleep I am fine. Is this something to be worried about, also is this a common symptom that would be associated with HIV? I do work out a lot with Yoga and lift weights, could this contribute to muscle twitching at night? I would really appreciate hearing from you. thanks

Response from Dr. Sullivan

This would be a very unusual manifestation of HIV; there are many possible explanations for your symptoms and you should discuss them with your Primary Care Physician;JLS.

my chronic bacterial vaginosis infection seems to be antibiotic resistant
