Got over one thing, now it’s on to the next.

Recommended Posts

Where do I start? I was overcome with fear about ALS because I had a sudden onset of twitches and jerks. Then I had pain in my foot and my toes got weak.

Went to the neurologist. Found out I have a gluten sensitivity and my twitches could be cause by that. Also found out that I have low vitamin D which could also explain the bone pain. In fact, once I started taking vitamin D my foot feels better but not completely. 

For the past week, my foot will shake back and forth 3 or 4 times when I am falling asleep. I know about hypnic jerks, but I read that it is only one single muscle contraction. My leg shakes like I trying to shake something off my foot. Anyone else experienced this?
