Lately I have had twitching inside my right leg, sometimes it,s at the top of my leg sometimes at my ankle or at my knee. This has only started recently and the way I think, being the eternal optimist, is that any change has to be good.If someone was to put their hand on my leg (I should be so lucky) they would feel nothing it is just happening inside. Does anyone else get these weird sensations? It,s five years now since my spinal injury, so why is this only happening now?

I can't say I've experienced the exact sensation you have. But it's been 13 years since my injury, and I get weird sensations all the time. They're usually harmless and go away eventually.

Those infernal low down muscel twitches - i have had for as long as i can remember
They are only noticeable by touch, dont cause visable spasms although thats what they are

I had a "shocking" sensation on the inside of my right quad a week ago that lasted the better part of the day.

It was like zingers that would go up/down the thigh.

I'm taking it as a good sign, since in the last month or so, I've been seeing some increased mobility/balance.
Adversity doesn't build character.....it reveals it.

I have normal pulsing spasms sometimes throughout both my legs from time to time. However, I've also noticed that I sometimes have a long-lasting quiver in my right inner thigh when I'm nervous or tense. I get this when I'm under a lot of stress or there's something making me somewhat emotional. I think it may have something to do with increased blood pressure during those times, and the quiver sometimes lasts for hours. Normally, it's just a spasm when they twitch and shake, but it's something different when I'm up-tight about something.

It's probably just a spasm of some sort. That, or if you have any control over your legs, or progressively getting control, it may be some sort of reaction. When I started gaining a little more calf-muscle control in my left foot, I could feel little tremors behind my ankles. They stopped after a while, but if you can exercise your legs at all or have any ability to push with your legs, it sounds like something that could be related to exercise.
3 doctors diagnosed me with hysterical paralysis (weee!), 1 diagnosed an incomplete T7, another T2 and the last (and most accurate) T5. Trampolines are BAD. Sleep is unpredictable. And never kiss strangers. Life has moved on.
