well, it has been a long journey...I used to post on the other BFS forums...starting about 2 decades ago...yes, there were at least two other BFS forums in the past ...now long gone...
I have not twitched in many weeks...here is my story:
60 years old...first got twitches in my eyelids in 1993...a few weeks prior to that I had briefly worked with lady who also had eyelid twitches...the twitching spread throughout my body in the mid 90s...developed parasthesias...etc...what changed? Well, I went from pre-diabetic to diabetic last fall and that prompted me to begin hardcore dieting last winter...stopped drinking...lost major weight...have not drunk anything but lemon water and water in months...whole foods diet...little processed food..no alcohol in many months...high fat diet, low carbs, lots of non-starchy veg ...lots and lots of exercise...
it is so weird to not twitch after almost 25 years...no parathesias...
I take melatonin at night and sleep better...

I may twitch a little but it is not really noticeable...
