Ok,i ve been having this problem for about a week now.
in random periods of time,my thumb starts twiching,or shaking if you understand this better.Its sort of like its pulsing
and it goes all the way to the upper part of my palm near the thumb.
It doesnt really bother me at all,while playing or anything,
but its been a week and im kinda worried.
Can anyone help me,has this happened to anyone else?
Is it from using it too much?(i understand ofc i cant avoid fap jokes with this statement,have at it all you want )

Edit:i forgot to add it is in my picking hand.

FAP!!!

Have you come off any SSRIs or anything lately, and/or has your caffeine intake increased?

Meh, I usually just buy them off the local shaman, unless I'm in the wilderness, where I rely on raw meat to raise my HP.

The same happened to me, but it was a calcium deficiency.

I had the same problem once. It went away on it's own after about a week, and nothing ever came of it. But if you're that worried, you can always go to the doctor to get it checked out, or at least use WebMD.

its just alzheimers...micheal j fox has it, so should you



wow either you're joking or stupid.

Parkinson's is what you are thinking of.
Alzheimers makes you lose your memory, not shake.

Sounds like tendonitis (inflammation of tendon). Stop playing for a few days and take some ibuprofen or similar. And yes it is likely to be from overuse.

It might just be tiredness - my eye twitches when I don't get enough sleep. Irritates the hell out of me! But see a doc is its happening a lot, just to make sure its not the first signs of something more serious
