1. Issues with handwriting?
All my life before BFS crap. My teacher would say my handwriting looks like as if I had written while ridding on a horse.

2. Increase on decrease with catching colds or flus?
None still the same.

3. Cracking sounds in areas such as your neck, back, or feet?
Knees and neck

4. Symptoms of IBS?
All my life especially I dont know morning after I brush my teeth I always get stomach ache for no reason! Its always early morning I notice.

5. Trouble with your balance?
No

6. Trouble (percieved) swallowing?
No

7. Increase in headaches?
No

8. Tongue twitches?
I had very few of this its more like spasm I felt. But the weird thing is I felt a bit more on the mouth and throat than tongue but they hardly come.

9. Twitching in your back or abdomen?
When I have nightmare for some weir reason it twitches at my back.


10. Do you or did you watch the HBO series True Blood?? :lol: :lol: :lol: (sorry, inside joke, had to put it in here Mary) That and I ran out of symptoms that people ask me about and I hate not ending with an even number :D

No i dont. I was crazy about Prison Break and Lost and after both of them ended I just did not find anything else that interesting in the series except some realitys hows like Hells Kitchen and Amazing Race. :D

mommylondon wrote:Do you like surveys, I like surveys...I think they are good to help others see that they are not alone with their symptoms, and that there symptoms are common among other BFSers...Sure you could sit and do a search in the archives for your symptoms..and that does well for many...but sometimes its hard to do all that reading and sometimes its not good to do all that reading as you may run into others anxious thoughts and find yourself drowning in your own pool of anxiety...

So here is another symptom list..Do you have....

1. Issues with handwriting?Hands cramp up a lot now when I write or do anything.. alot of hand pain too

2. Increase on decrease with catching colds or flus?No Change here, don't really get colds or flu very often

3. Cracking sounds in areas such as your neck, back, or feet?Heck yes!!! Neck, back and ankles really bad


4. Symptoms of IBS?Yes, have dealt with this for years. Not officially diagnosed, but doctor said I probably have it.

5. Trouble with your balance?Yes, lately it has felt off...When really anxious it's worse.

6. Trouble (percieved) swallowing?Sometimes... not a huge problem for me

7. Increase in headaches?YES!! My headache problem started before the full blown twitching and am still dealing with it today

8. Tongue twitches?I do get tongue twitching, but it is the place that I have twitched the least

9. Twitching in your back or abdomen?HECK YES!!! In the beginning they were so strong it was so frightening. These places are regular random poppers for me with occasional hotspots.

10. Do you or did you watch the HBO series True Blood?? :lol: :lol: :lol: (sorry, inside joke, had to put it in here Mary) That and I ran out of symptoms that people ask me about and I hate not ending with an even number :D


These surveys may be pointless in some people eyes...but I know for a fact that mine and others have helped some people and thats all I care about....It aint a popularity contest around here folks..people are struggling and others can help...can we just let that happen since thats what this board is all about??

Take care all

Robynn :D

Hi Robynn!

1. Issues with handwriting? Well, it's not good - I've always gotten complaints about it.

2. Increase on decrease with catching colds or flus? I've got a pretty strong immune system. With two small children, I seem to catch hardly anything.

3. Cracking sounds in areas such as your neck, back, or feet? Sometimes.

4. Symptoms of IBS? Yes, for sure.

5. Trouble with your balance? No, I don't think so.

6. Trouble (percieved) swallowing? Yes, I keep thinking I have small bits of food caught in my throat. Could be GERD, or anxiety, but it's scary.

7. Increase in headaches? No.

8. Tongue twitches? No - maybe one.

9. Twitching in your back or abdomen? Again, maybe a twitch here or there, but nothing out of the ordinary.

10. Do you or did you watch the HBO series True Blood?? :lol: :lol: :lol: (sorry, inside joke, had to put it in here Mary) That and I ran out of symptoms that people ask me about and I hate not ending with an even number :D

Nope, but heard it's great! The best show on TV in my opinion is Breaking Bad, but that is a show that will surely make you twitch! :)

1. Issues with handwriting?
-- Yes. Sometimes I'll be at work writing something and my hand will feel like it's not working properly at all. Have to struggle to write, but then the next day it's better.

2. Increase on decrease with catching colds or flus?
-- No. Get about the same number of colds and flus that I always have.

3. Cracking sounds in areas such as your neck, back, or feet?
-- Yes. Where my right leg connects to my hip is probably the most frequent spot.

4. Symptoms of IBS?
-- Yes. Since I was 10 years old. Varying degrees of success in self-treatment which generally consists of trying to relax, eating 35 g of fiber per day + drinking about 1.5 gallons of water per day.

5. Trouble with your balance?
-- Yes. I still have what I would consider good balance, but sometimes it's really, really off.

6. Trouble (percieved) swallowing?
-- Not really. I've had this in the past but I am convinced it was all in my head.

7. Increase in headaches?
-- Yes. I've had migraines since I was 14. I've had really, really bad ones in the past including blindness, numbness, etc. My whole family gets them. Lately they are less severe (likely because I take Excedrin at the first sign of them) but more frequent.

8. Tongue twitches?
-- No. At least I don't think so. I refuse to look.

9. Twitching in your back or abdomen?
-- Yes. Abdomen twitching is one of the first places I noticed twitching before it went ALL OVER.

10. Do you or did you watch the HBO series True Blood??
-- No.
