Yeah, it happens to me, too, caffeine or not! It does look scary. And I also get the eye twitch, which isn't usually visible to anyone, but I feel it. But after I gave birth, I became extremely twitchy (all over my entire body!). Very diconcerting. I even had an MRI which revealed nothing. My neurologist said that some people get them, and they're called benign fasciculations. Sometimes, my finger or eye gets a twitch that lasts for days.

my fingers get really twitchy off an on-- i have had other twitches all over my body in just about every muscle. i went to a neuro and had a clean bill of health. basically as long as you have not noticed muscle atrophy or weakness (not perceived weakness, but dropping things, etc.) then you are okay.<br><br>
Thanks Mel,i will go check it out.....you have what also ,The eye floater?hmm,only thing I can be is quite clumsy,lol.....<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">.i also have anxiety difficuklties too,WOnder if that may cause it too......thanks!
mat4mel, sounds totally like me. And it's separate, but I have eye floaters! You're more prone to them if you're near sighted, which I am. I am a total anxiety person, so I'm not surprised that it may be related to the twitchies. There's some comfort in knowing others of you are around- makes me more comfortable believing the dr. that this stuff exists and can be benign!
