Please please help months I've had on going twitches

Resolved Question:

Please please help months I've had on going twitches all over my body, they began under my eye now a lot of them are in my left bicep, my blood test results came back all fine and my gp said my reflexes where brisk, I am 37 years old I suffer from bouts of anxiety and have pcos, I have taken Prozac and metformin years. I also started using a vibration plate 3 years ago I spend most days on it sometimes up to 40 mins and 50mins on my treadmill. I was a binge drinker in the past but last October I gave up completely and have since only drank twice at xmas. My neuro app could take some time I'm terrified I have mnd or maybe a tumour I am truly frightened many thanks x
