New Twitch - Question

Postby Mark1369 on April 6th, 2014, 6:52 pm

I've been dealing with BFS for over 9 months now - I have had two clean EMGs (in the last 60 days), clean MRI (with the exception of Chiari 1) and other tests came out fine. Generally, have had small fine tremors, jitteriness, internal tremors, zaps, pins and needles, some dizziness and brain fog. This all started after a pretty bad virus. For a while I was pretty spooked but am coming to terms with this little by little.

My question: the twitches have always been random and all over - recently I have one that has started on my right inner bicep. Its been about 3 days now and it comes and goes - its especially positional - meaning that if I am leaning on my arm in the right way I can trigger it. Flexing sometimes stops it for a little while - sometimes it doesn't. Smacking it can stop it or sometimes speed it up. It's weird and different from before.

Never had any weakness etc.. Still don't - no fatigue but I get shaky muscles easy (isometric tremors) which I've had for some time now.

Anyone else have this? Is this odd? Normal for BFS? I feel like I've made some good progress on coping but everything was predictable - this new thing has thrown me for a loop.

One other thing - the neuro mentioned "maybe" BFS but also thought I had essential tremors which I thought was a strange diagnosis an not encompassing all of the BFS-like symptoms.
