Dear Abhishek,

What you are experiencing could be what we call fasciculations. Fasciculations are rhythmic muscle contractions (not those of the nerves). There is a list of conditions that could lead to such fasciculations. However, if you do not have other symptoms suggestive of any medical condition, you may consider only a few causes. Stress is a common factor associated with fasciculations. Mental or physical stress can lead to these symptoms. Anxiety is another possible cause.

Lack of adequate sleep can also bring about these symptoms.

You may have to reduce any stress and anxiety in your life at present. You can also try a few relaxation exercises. Jacobson's Progressive Muscle Relaxation (PMR) is a good and effective technique, found to be useful for relieving stress. You can read more about PMR here -

You may not have to worry excessively. If you have any other bothersome symptoms, you can always consult your physician for an evaluation. Adopting a healthy lifestyle including adequate sleep can help.

Take care.

Lately I have been having a lot of problems with constipation. Not irregularity... I ll go every day or every other day, but my stool is so hard it feels like I am passing shards of glass. It makes me bleed horribly and it is very painful. I am a nursing student & I am under extreme stress at school.. I know stress can contribute to constipation. I have been taking a stool softener every day, but it still hurts so bad!

I ve never had anxiety or stress, but within the last 3 months I feel like anxiety is causing me to have stomach problems that result in me having the urge to go to the bathroom. It is really bad when I travel or am in meetings and this has never been a problem in my life, but has been consistently bad recently. Any suggestions?

My doctor thinks I have adrenal fatigue or insufficiency after coming off a week of Prednisone (which was for sinusitis that hadn t resolved after 4 courses of Augmentin.) Symptoms included aching glands around head and shoulders, lightheadedness, dizziness, insomnia, terrible fatigue, strange aches here and there. I also have had cognitive issues - losing track of what I am talking about mid sentence. CT scan yesterday showed that the paranasal sinses are clear now and all blood tests, FBC, iron, thyroid etc were normal. My doctor has prescribed a lower dose of Prednisone for 3 weeks to kick start the Adrenal glands. Prior to my problem with sinusitis, I have had at least a year of stress due to grief, supporting others through grief, daughter getting married, changes at work and a greatly increased workload where I don t have time for leisure. I am 49 and mother to 3. I work full time.I have started the low dose prednisone but am worried that it will cause more problems. Should I stay on it?
