The book “Clinician’s Guidebook to Lumbar Spine Disorders” is the best book for understanding potential causes of fasciculations or dysesthesias.

The two chapters review most of the disorders that cause these symptoms but it is not absolutely complete as there are very rare conditions that are not covered.
