Nearly nine years now!

Hello all ... I have just revisited this forum after nearly 3 years and thought I would contribute a progress report. My twitching symptoms are still there after 9 years, and a GP diagnosis ages ago that it is 'probably BFS'. Twitches come and go in various places, mainly calves (constant) and occasionally eyelids. Worse after strong coffee (Nespresso addict) and when I'm tired. Still have as much strength as a 62 year old might expect. So, to any new twitchers out there, I think you might find my case a fairly common one, especially as I, too, scared myself silly after Google diagnoses. I'll be pleased to answer any questions anyone might have about my experiences. :D

I Have had constantly twitching calf muscles for 5years now.Also in my feet .I get really bad cramps sometimes and find it worse after exercise. I am keen to increase my fitness but scared of the effect it might have long term on my bfs. Any advise ?

Hi Tony, do you have also experiences with cramps and twitching in feet? Have you ever had problems to sleep , because you are twitching during the night? Thank you for answering.

I also get really bad cramps in my legs and feet and they often wake me in the night sometimes leaving me in pain like a pulled muscle
