yeah, I think I have had on again - off again and then on again muscle tension issues as long as I can remember. Kind of like having a bit of gastritis, constipation or diarrhea along with general nervousness and anxiety - I can barely remember not having it at least to some degree

I used to get some muscle tension when I was working, but it's not been a problem for a long time. I'm not experiencing much stress at the moment. I guess the reduction in social challenges and the end of general workplace stress could well have been responsible. My diet is the same as it's been for years. I often use a simple meditation technique and a very brief Hatha yoga asana (a variant of the Cat Stretch), and believe they may be helpful, though I was also doing those when I used to get muscle tension and they didn't stop it. I suspect it helps to keep warm, and to get exercise. And a hot bath.

Main symptoms were a stiff neck, generally tight muscles (which I learned to consciously relax my way out of), and a slight but very distracting eyelid twitch.
