Hello,

Thanks for the query.

Localized and on and off fluttering of muscles on neck does not correlate with any major disease.
Some of the possibilities that can be considered are -
1.Muscle Fatigue
2.Hypocalcemia

Continue treatment for thyroid and blood pressure and wait to resolve the symptoms spontaneously.

Hope this answers your query.

Thank you.

Hi,

Thanks for the reply.

Hypocalcemia is the low calcium level in blood.

Normal Serum calcium 9-12mg/dl.If it is less than 9 mg/dl, it leads to hypocacemia symptoms like fatigue,spasms,weakness.

Hypocalcemia is common in older age group and in post-menopausal females.

Hope this answers your query.

Thank you.
