    I have had muscle twitching problems for years. Went to a neurologist several years before become diabetic, and everything checked out ok. I was likely prediabetic at the time. I'm just wondering if diabetes has anything to do with it. More than that, I am curious if anyone else has experienced this and what remedies you have found that help.

    Actually I used to have eye twitching but not for a long time, I put it down to lack of sleep, but you never know

    I have been getting that when I am tired, but my prescription for glasses must have changed since I have been losing weight as my close ups and distance glasses seem "fuzzy"

    Yes. When my BG was very high before diagnosis 2 months ago, calf muscles had noticeable palpitations, not twitching to the extent of involuntary movements though.

    I was informed possibly due to excess blood sugar by my GP and good BG control will help negate, which it has. Have not had any issues in over a month.

    Facial twitches are the worst. I only get those now and then. Today was one of those days.
