    Muscle Spasm

    Hi, my condolence to u, ur father and family.  I have been doagnose with breast cancer, secondary lung cancer and recently given weeks to live. Yes... I suffer muscle spasm/twitching constantly, and usually whole I'm about to fall asleep. Twitching often occus more to the right driver history report of my body, my leg, shoulders, hand and even my upper chest; but lately, my shoulders. Twitching started mid last year (2016); a year after i had chemo. But since iv been  given weeks to live I have notice the twitching in my body is a lot more frequent. I also noticed that when i almost died and was resently admitted into hosptial, the twitching came on a lot quicker (1-3 seconds from closing my eyes) and grew stronger (Kick rather a twitch); but has settled since I was discharged. Spcialist have no idea why or what's causing my body from twitching. But speakimg for myself I personally believe there is a mixture of reasons that contribute to our body experiencing muscle spasms 1) Our time (Life span) is near, 2) Body is extremly vulnerable and our brain still trying to process the shock that our time to die is near. 3) Cancer spreading to other parts of the body and 5) Medication triggering reaction but I'm not entirely convinced since I was not taking medication at the time. Hope this helps.
