    So, my thumb on my right hand (and my pointer finger sometimes, not sure of it's name) has been twitches inconsistently for the last hmm months (many many months ago) it comes and goes and I can't really put any one thing on it, sometimes it happens more after a hard workout at the gym, sometimes it doesn't, sometimes it'll happen for days and then nothing for a few weeks (in days I mean, it'll twitch for a minute and be gone for 30 or 50 minutes and then come back again for a minute)

    anyone know why this can happen? something I should be concerned about at all?

    It is possible that you have intestinal worms. A good cleansing will wash them away and kill the worms and then you will be back to normal...maybe!

    I am not KIDDING!!

    My left eye lid began twitching a couple weeks ago. It is the most annoying thing, went on for a few days and then suddenly stopped.

    Something small like an eyelid twitch is generally stress or lack of sleep, but something like a thumb generally means nerve damage, especially if its been going on that long. I would suggest getting it looked at

    yeah I gotta remember to mention it to my doctor, I see her regularly but it's about other stuff and completely forget to mention it.

    That is odd, Tank. Probably just over using it in the gym or in a way that it
    hasn't been used previously. Maybe your gripping something differently or
    shifting weight with your hands. Whatever it is, if it continues beyond a few days, I'd have it checked by a doctor.

    That said, I usually have other areas that "twich" after being at the gym.....

    curious... have you tried giving your hands and fingers a good stretch?
    Maybe the tendons and muscles are shortened and tightened after you work out and the twitching is brought on by that change in density. Just guessing... I'm no doctor but I do love to play doctor.

    My eyes twitch when I've been reading too long. They literally fibrillate right to left REALLY fast. It obscures my vision and equilibrium. I usually have to put my head between my legs and close my eyes for a few minutes till it stops.

    Yeah, there is one nerve bundle/muscle that controls the bending of the thumb and partially affects the index finger. (It's up inside your forearm.) Mine died completely and the muscle atrophied to the point that the doc couldn't even find it any more. So now I can't bend my thumb and my wright wrist is skinnier than the left.

    Might want to have it looked at while it's still twitching.
