Nah, not even close. Simonaa twitches every second to match me. But Bobajojo is going at it 3 times per second, or like 240,000 per day! It always is a surprise when you add them up!

I know it sound horrendous doesn't it? But if you think about how often you blink, it's probably similar! :)

Lying on the couch watching Sunday Night Football and my feet, calves, hands, and back are all twitching away. 3 times per second is not an overestimate! That's pretty much standard for me.
Over 10 billion twitches since May 2011.

Started late March of 2009. Began with an "innocent" side to side movement of my right ring finger. Increased slowly over spring and summer, becoming nearly constant in insteps and calves. Seems to be very slowly getting worse over time, but strength seems to be fine. I go to neuro once per year now for followups.

All the time. Often they move around, but over the last 3 weeks below the elbow on the right I have been twitching 24/7 many times per second.
Fasciculating from the 25/03/2007 (as accurately as I can recall!...)

Holy Cow! Here I'm thinking 10,000 is alot for me. I can't imagine. I mean, I feel I twitch alot and it drives me nuts but I can't imagine it happening every second or even every 3 seconds for that matter (although this happens to me at night when I lay down). Wow!

I've actually desperately tried and failed to keep a log of how many twitches I get per day...
At the beginning of it I'd say I've twitched about 500+ times a day.
3 years later, I've estimated about maybe 70-100 a day. Big reduction for the most part, of course control of my fear over the issue really helped.
