Re: Constant twitching

... think I worry so much but still I'm continuously twitching. I can cope with the twitching but the stiffness is horrible. I've been prescribed amitriptyline but it makes me fall asleep. Is there any thing we can try to stop the twitching? RGB you have been a great help! Xx

Re: Sleepwalking?
