Hard, violent twitching

Postby seventhcandle on October 6th, 2012, 8:06 pm

I am only three months into this BFS mess and I was wondering if anyone else out there gets very hard and violent twitches all over that actually cause pain. I get these painful ones in my calves, feet, above the knee, quads, shoulders, arms, hands, neck, face, lips, and eyelids both at night and during the day.

Does anyone else get these kind of twitches regularly?
Been on the BFS journey since 6/26/12...

Twitch way do I go from here?

BFS does get better with time. Almost two years in and able to do almost everything I could do before I had this condition. Still twitching away of course...

Of course. Almost everyone gets those. Arron even describes them in BFS In a Nutshell as cramps that start to cramp but don't actually make it all the way. So they are like a half cramp.
BFS FAQ:
1. No, that's not bulbar
2. No, the location doesn't matter
3. Yes, we have all had that symptom
4. No, you're not the exception
5. No, that's not ominous
6. No, you don't need an EMG
7. Yes, you will be fine
