Nerve twitches on legs, expanded vein in neck, no pain

HELLO Dr, I am having this nerve twitches all over my body especially on my 2 legs for the past one month now.Though it has subsided, but it still occurs and worries me a great deal. I also feel that the vein on the left side of my neck has expanded. It has also subsided but refused to go completely. When I feel it with my hand , I do not feel anything or any form of pain, but the feel of the expansion occurs at intervals. Pls advice. Thanks Bede.

Thank you for posting your query.

The most common cause for muscle twitching on your legs could be a condition called as benign fasciculations. This is not a serious condition, and would subside on its own. However, you should watch for muscle wasting (thinning of muscles) and weakness, when you would need to see a neurologist to exclude other conditions such as ALS.

Bulging neck vein is normal and in the absence of symptoms (such as breathlessness), there is no need to worry.
I hope it helps. Please get back if you require any additional information.

Wishing you good health,
