Twitching in both hands, teeth chattering

2 posts in this topic

Hey y'all,

 

So, I've been having a few issues lately, I'm a 21 year old male. 

 

Since late October 2016, my left hand has had a fasciculation in it that used happen consistently, but now only happens about 5 times a day.

 

Around Christmas 2016, I noticed my right finger would shake if I moved it to the side, both while moving it and a little after resting it. About 2 weeks after, the same happened to my left hand. 

 

Now, as of last night around 7PM up to now, my teeth have been chattering lightly consistently, with the most break being maybe 5 seconds, then it would just continue.

 

I'm worried that these may be early signs of parkinsons, I've spoken to my PCP about the fasciculation and he told me not to worry, but haven't been back to tell him about the other symptoms. I'll be visiting the doctor on my college campus, on Monday, but I'd like a little peace of mind beforehand if possible. So could any of these be early signs of parkinson's or could there be an alternative cause?

 

Thank you!

It is unlikely Parkinson by your description however if the symptoms persist best to see a neurologist with some expertise in Parkinson.
