Twitchy finger, should I be worried?

For about 2 weeks now my finger(ring finger I'll call it) has been twitching. It was on and off but lately it has been mostly on. I'm worried it may be something bad like a neurological disorder? I am a receptionist so I type a lot. I am 27 so could it be something bad? Has anyone had this and know what might be wrong? Thanks!

It is probably just a muscle spasm- I get little twitches in my leg or even finger when I am tired or sometimes it just randomly happens.

If you type a lot (I do as well), it could just be a little carpel tunnel maybe? Sometimes my pointer finger feels really weak when I've been typing a lot. If you are worried, make sure to see a doctor.

And please- avoid web MD! You'll only scare yourself!!! :) Good luck!

I gotta completely agree with Alex, do not research the crap out of it--you WILL scare and drive yourself nuts guaranteed!!

Ive never had or heard of anything like this so I cant really comment on it, BUT id wait a couple days in case it is just a spasm, then consult a doctor if it persists. Is it painful at all??????

I just stop what I'm doing to focus on it. It's not like a crazy twitch i just know its happening so I focus on it and since it's been going on and off for a few weeks now I'm worried:-(

Could be stress on Jan 05, 2012 @ 07:56 pm

Sometimes nervous twitches are stress related. I usually get it in my right eye which is my dominant eye. Sometimes my upper lip will do it too. Nobody can see it but I can feel it. Usually happens when I am way to stress out from work and family.

Id try and relax and remove some of the tension. Use some massage techniques. Aveda has a massage oil/dispenser that blue. Use it for a while. It's a little stinky but it warms as you rub it into the effected area. It acts as a ligament and is a little pricy. I love aveda so I use it.

Try not to type for couple of days. I know that hard because of your job but I find by taking a vacation away from the keyboard usually helps me also.

Dont panic yet until you've seen your Dr. If distressing and massage doesn't help. Good luck!
