    What could fasciculations in arms and back indicate?

    I have been having strong fasciculations in both my arms and back for over a week. I get it often but not as bad as the present. I am under a lot of stress at the moment and have been having at least 2 cups of coffee a day, Is this something to be worried about??

    Fasciulations have a variety of causes, the majority of which are usually benign. They can however be due to disease of the motor neurons.

    Fasciculations are commonly encountered in healthy people which can be annoying. In such cases after a thorough neurological examination and EMG testing, if no pathology is found a diagnosis of “benign fasciculation syndrome” is made.

    Please see a professional in regards to this as although in a percentage of people there is no issue, the issues that do arise can be serious.
