Twitching in Calves

Why does my left calve twitch continuosly, and sometimes the right one. Is this due to training? I did have sciatica, and the leg has never really gained it full elasticity.

It doesn't hurt, if anything it feels nice. However is this due to training?

    Could be worthwhile getting a decent sports massage and getting any kinks rubbed out of the muscle as this could be the cause of the problem.
  • Hi Jason,

    I've often had twitches, I've tended to get them in my Triceps!! I was told that it was simply being over tired and that a decent rest was all that was needed. The Advice seem to work, I'd lay of trianing for a day or 2 and seem to come back feeling stronger mentally and physically!

    Actually I am not sure if it is twitching, it feels more like the muscles moving around?

    I just did a 5 mile run, and the leg that had sciatica, the muscles are going mad.

  • I used to suffer from twitching eyelids. My doctor said it was the lack of magnesium in my diet. Apparently magnesium alows the muscles to relax when one is in a relaxed state. I take a supplement and it stoped my twitching eyelids. Possibly it could do the same for your calves.
