maybe I'm just crazy, but to me it seems I twitch more on days where the weather changes a lot from day to day. if it goes from say 20 degrees one day to 50 degrees the next I think I twitch more.

I don't know about the twitching, but the fatigue and perceived weakness seem worse on cold and/or damp days. That's been my experience.
I will ultimately and completely crush, defeat, anihilate, and eradicate my anxiety so it cannot and will not do the same to me.

This topic gets me thinking about the autoimmune/viral possibilities of BFS. I have had Crohn's Disease/Ulcerative Colitis for about 10 years. Crohn's/Colitis is an autoimmune disorder. And I remember my gastro telling me that many people experience flare-ups during cold fronts, changes in the weather etc. I remember it happening to me also.

Maybe I'm reaching here, but I'll be darned if my Crohn's didn't flare up during weather changes. I haven't really thougth about the twitches behaving that way.

Chron's Desease

Postby Slavin Balen on March 8th, 2005, 1:45 am

My gastroenterologist says that wide spread fasciculations might be early sign of Chron's Desease. He has seen a few cases in his career. I have been tested last week. The lab exam was negative i.e. I have not CD.

Slavin,

What is the connection with Crohn's Disease and what type of lab testing did they perform?

Pansdorf method

Postby Slavin Balen on March 8th, 2005, 12:21 pm

Sorry, I can't find out words in English. Something like this:
I did lab test of bowels by Pansdorf's method. I had my bowels X-rayed. Lasted few hours and 10 pictures were done. It shows early stage of Chron's desease and other desease as well. Everything was fine and normal.
