Brain Tumors/Muscle twitches



So I am paranoid something is wrong with me. For the past few days I have been getting muscle twitches across my body. They are not painful and can occur anywhere, I have felt them in my chest, back, arms, legs and even butt. Of course google searches come back with als and a brain tumor. They happen often, the only time I really don't feel them is while I am doing things.  I feel fine otherwise so I am curious what could cause this is as it's driving me nuts. Any idea what could cause my brain to make these movements?


They may also be signs of stress among other things! This is not something I can solve for you from afar. Not without an examination! So I strongly suggest that you let a doctor - best a neurologist - check you! Good luck!
