Yes I have for almost 2 days straight, then it slowed down, area felt "funny" for a few days after. I went straight to my doctors after 24 hours as this was prior to my EMG and neuro referral. He could see it through my pants!

I have twitched EVERYWHERE!! and I mean EVERYWHERE. But never one that was like a pulse.. I've had hot spots in every location too... But they were more random not like this... Should I be worried?

My GP ordered blood work and reassured me twitching itself is not a concern. He saw the panic it caused me and ordered the EMG as I was still waiting the neurology consult (this was last June and didn't see the neuro till October). The blood work was unchanged from my last results with low b12 and normal EMG. He acknowledged the constant twitching in my thigh was not normal twitching but said if he really thought I had something terrible going on he would call the neurologist himself. It was a frightening experience but went away. Yes while standing too, I remember being at work and going for a walk and it was still going strong while standing. It will stop soon Violetmom, and although a new type of twitching just the unpredictable part of BFS :?

Hi Veryworried, funny you ask as when all this started like many I was excessively self testing and examining. I noticed a dent on left outer thigh even before that area was a hotspot. I showed my GP (whom I trust and has been my doctor for 18 years) and he felt it was the distribution of adipose tissue (fat). It's still there and likely was before the days of self examining. My quads do shake from time to time not sure if they do when semi-flexed. Hope that answers your question.

This twitch is bringing me back to my initial days of being freaked out... Actually had a nervous breakdown in beginning... I don't want to go there again.. My thigh is almost constant.. I've read here that als twitches are constant until weakness occurs. I'm so scared guys... Help!!!

Yes but lots of people here have hot spots that last for week or months so I won't worry about that
