Twitching Fingers

Recommended Posts

About the same time my scleroderma symptoms began last year, my index fingers started twitching from time to time. My aunt has Parkinson's, so I'm wondering if the twitching could be related to sclerdo, be a double whammy, or totally unrelated.


Anyone have twitching fingers?

I don't have a twitchy finger but I do have a twitchy toe on my right foot and my left eyelid. They twitch periodically (not at the same time) and feels weird. I don't think it's scleroderma related because it started a couple of years before diagnosis, but then I'll never know. It doesn't twitch as much now as it use to.


Hugs to you and your aunt,

Hi there VEGAN,

I also have a thumb that does this from time to time...and a little more than I'd like! I just read the article that Jude the Grouch posted. It was actually about Dysphagia, but it mentioned the link from Scleroderma to Parkinson's and a few other "not so fun" illnesses. The point is that they are all somehow not that far from each other. I hope that muscle spasms arent Parkinson's, but something to consider I guess.

I havent been diagnosed with anything except Fibromyalgia and endometriosis, but I get twitchy everything off and on. Once it was my eye for a month or so, then my nose, sometimes my legs, back etc and the finger with the ulcer does at times twitch. Who knows?
