I've been dealing with muscle twitching in my toes and

I've been dealing with muscle twitching in my toes and fingers for the past 3 months and muscle spasms throughout my body, mainly fingers and toes. Sometimes it can be painful sometimes just bothersome. It happens every single day. Started in my left big toe spread throughout my foot and then went into my right foot than hands and fingers. I am seeing a neurologist for this issue and I am getting an EMG done on June 13th in all extremities. No vitamin deficiencies , blood tests came back good on that. Normal regular blood panels and total protein serum just waiting on GM1 antibody and ANA tests to come back. My neurologist thinks this is from long term use of alprazolam or zoloft? I have been on it since I was 15 and I am now 33. I've never heard of this before. Could one of these drugs be causing this? I also do have bulged discs in my neck C-5-7 and a herniated disc in my L5-S1 and bugled in L4.

The side of the outside of my right big toe is numb, it s been like this for a long time, any idea what s causing this. Maybe a pinched nerve, or something. I lift weights 5 days a week and I have no back pain other than what is expected. I also have been noticing my calf muscles twitch nonstop on both legs.

i stubbed my right little toe 10 days ago. i ve iced, elevated, and rested my foot. there s great pain in putting weight on foot, so i m using crutches. in the last 3 days, i started experiencing muscles spasms in both 4th toe and broken one . these are also very painful. i tried ebsom salt soaks and now have it lightly wrapped it for support to all the toes (due to the twitches). i plan to see a dr asap.....my question: what are these spasms? they easily raise my pain level to an 8 even though i m sitting still.
