A little worried...

I was flexing my left and right biceps today, to check they hadn't atrophied (I know, very bad, but it's usually reassuring), and after doing so with the left one, it was twitching like crazy - really really heavy ones. I did the same with my left bicep, and the same thing happened. I'm kinda freaked

Hey Dave...

It is not at all unusual to twitch in the muscles that you tense up...that is why it's so common to twitch more after exercise. I wouldn't be worried.

I get this all the time.

Iyou have BFS you will twitch today, tomorrow, next month, next year , etc etc.

The twicthes you have on flexing muscles have no more significance than any of the others you have had. They are just twitches - and if my experience is anything to go by - you are going to have a lot of them. Expect them and you won't be disappointed.

Whatever this is, it is a real illness, its not in your mind and you will get real and disturbing symptoms. I have lkearned to trust the opinion of my neurologist and despite 14 months of twitching I am 100% fine. As i am sure you will be.

Best wishes
