feeling down again

My twitches have been bad again lately. I noticed that my right hand along the pinky side is showing real symptoms of atrophy. I think it could be due to an ulnar nerve entrapment but everyone knows what happenes when we notice new symptoms. I also get pain along that side of my right hand, and pulsing twitches on my inner elbow on that side. I wake up many mornings with my right pinky and index finger numb and my my grip strength on my right hand is now weaker than on the left. also, I have no push strength in my right pinky. I'm having pains in right leg as well, and nonstop twitching all over my bodY... what does this sound like?

It sounds like BFS to me, combined with some nerve irritation issues. The pain and the fact that you wake up with it numb definitely points to that. Sometimes when I sleep on my arm, the entire thing feels weak for hours. You are a twitcher, so anytime you have nerve issues, a virus, inflammation, stress, or anxiety, you can bet that your body will respond by increased twitching. I would definitely see a neurologist to address the ulnar/nerve entrapment issue, before surgery to release the trapped nerve is needed. There is no need to worry about what I know is in the back of your mind; the pain and numbness indicates it is something much much much less serious, though it still needs to be checked out. Take care.
