What causes fluttering sensation on the back while lying down?

What could cause a fluttering or trembling feeling in my back. Usually feel it while lying down or sleeping, but sometimes also while sitting. I have stopped taking anything with caffeine; e.g. coffee, tea, chocolates, and altho symptoms improved somewhat, have not entirely disappeared. Thank you.

Hello,

In terms of the symptoms you’ve been experiencing, there are several possible reasons why this may be happening, one of the most common being muscle fasciculations, better known as twitching.

People with Benign Fasciculation Syndrome experience a persistent twitch, tingling, or numbness in one or more of their muscles. BFS causes chronic muscle twitching, which can last for extended periods of time or come back regularly.

Twitches may appear in random muscles and may get better or worse with time. I suggest you to consult doctor in person for treatment and please do not panic.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr K. V. Anand, Psychologist
