Is involuntary left thumb twitching or spasm cause for concern?
Question Posted Wednesday October 6 2010, 4:09 pm
For the past few days my left thumb has been going crazy. About once every 30 seconds to a minute it will spasm out for 5-ish seconds. It's frustrating and causes a lot of distraction for me. I don't really know what to think of it because it happens all of the time--during rest, movement, etc. I started reading online and saw that Michael J. Fox found out he had Parkinson's and remarked his pinky twitched on it's own a lot. Now, I'm not jumping to conclusions that I have Parkinsons because I'm still rather young, but is this (involuntary movement of the left thumb) merit a doctor's visit or will it go away on it's own?
