Odd muscle twitch on the top of my thigh. Maybe uni or b*ke related

As the title says, I’ve got an odd twitch. The top of my thigh randomly contracts and twitches, rapidly, nothing slow and painful like a cramp, though it is very visible. It isn’t in any kind of pattern or anything just twitch twitch here and twitch twitch there. Seems like I get this after some time on the uni or bike, at least more commonly. It has never caused pain or done anything bad, but it is odd that my right thigh just randomly twitches.

Anybody else experience this? I’ve had it for quite a while, I’m not new to unicycles or bikes. I even had it when I was running 15miles a week and logging many more on the roadie, so I don’t think its because my muscles are is shock or anything of that sort. I thought I might be low on some vitamin, but odd it would only target that muscle on that leg. Thoughts?

Youre just weird :stuck_out_tongue:

Quite possibly, as I type this my leg does seem off… It doesn’t hurt, so I’m not going to worry for now. Never failed thus far.

Call a doc maybe?

Generally, it’s not a big deal, just annoying.

I have all kinds of twitches, twitches in my head, my eyes, I get spinal twitches at least 2-3 times a day, and sometimes when I stretch out my legs, my left leg quivers super fast.

I hope nothing is wrong with ME… haha

My shoulders used to do that after long canoe or kayak trips. It is not a big deal. Just eat a banana, find someone to give you a massage and enjoy life :slight_smile:

Have you tried getting those bolsters (firm cylinders) to roll over it for massage?

You may not be stretching it enough, as that’s a tough muscle to stretch.

I stretch it by kneeling, then dropping my butt onto my feet, then lying all the way back, pushing my pelvis forward/upward. It’s great to stretch the front thigh muscles.

Those big rolling pins are great, I have one for my back, but I forgot I had it, I need to go find it. Thank you!

I do eat bananas a decent bit. The second bit it a little harder, I’ll have to step my game up, for now I think I can handle it.

I have that happen all the time when I stretch, its really odd. Ever have it when your half asleep and them your whole body will twitch causing you to jump a bit if your doing something like sleeping on a school desk.

Thank you for the link.

Haven’t tried that at all. I don’t stretch at all, not before anything I do, all the cycling and running has made me really inflexible, I’m starting to work on that. I’m not even able to touch my toes. Thanks for the tip, I’ll give that a go.

No but I hear sometimes people wake up in I think it’s deep sleep, before REM sleep, and they can’t move because the body is still paraylzed. It could be something like that.
