Hi All   Smiley: wiggle
I hope you are all having a goodish day! I keep having a twitchy hand where my fingers and thumb shake uncontrollably for different periods of time, they don't hurt but it is really weird I have no control and can't hold items when it is bad, does anyone else suffer from this or could it be unrelated?
Many thanks  smiley: thanks

I also have this. I also get painful muscle spasms in my arms and my whole arms ache and twitch. My hands are often numb and often have severe pins and needles. I often cant hold anything when my hands get like this. Im always dropping things as my hands just dont seem to work. Ive also found found that now since getting iih i cant open jars or bottles.  My doctor has given my some pills to relax my muscles in my arms for when they get really painful. Apparently iih can effect your arms etc. My doctor told me this and im sure ive read it on the ihrf website.

I don't think it's anything to do with IIH but I also get very shaky hands and an 'irritated' right arm - I could sometimes rip off my arm it gets that irritated  Smiley: noooo! (until I double dose on pain killers and knock myself out so it stops bugging the hell out of me!!)

Thanks for the replies!

I take 20mg furosemide & 1000mg acteazolamide daily x

I don't get any pain in my arms it is just my hand, I also sometimes just drop things - it is almost like my hand forgets I am holding kids find it funny especially when the item happens to break!!!

Thanks again, I hope you are having a good day xx
