How much do you twitch

Postby veryworried123 on July 26th, 2014, 10:42 am

Hi everyone

I was wondering how much you twitch per day?

I feel like I twitch like crazy all the time

Can you ballpark it as I know it's hard to count

Under 50 a day?

Over 100 a day everywhere?

I'm at about 500 a day that I can even count on avergae

Thanks

500 a day is NOTHING! I count 35 per minute in each calf, 9 per minute in each thigh, and at least 20 per minute all over. Literally hundreds of thousands a day. See my video from yesterday. 500 a day is on the lighter side of BFS. But, it's different for everyone.

I know for sure I twitch in my sleep. Let me ask, do you have the lightning bolt type twitches in your calves? Because bfsers who have that will be in the thousands a day for sure.

I don't get lighting bolts but I do get lots and lots of myclonic jerks a day

Either that or they are just super strong twitches that moves my arm leg or whole body

I've tried just about everything to calm them down but can't find anything

I get them all over even in my face but mostly in legs even thighs, hands etc

Thanks

How long is a piece of string? There are far too many to count. Constant in feet and calves. Add in the ongoing random hits all over the body, which seem to come on regularly. Then as my ultrasound showed there are plenty of ones beneath the surface that you can't see and/or maybe not feel.

Well I don't count them, but this might give an indication, "how much don't I twitch!" They just never seem to stop. Lately I've been having some really weird twitch in my right shin, it's a constant repetitive twitch which happens every second, at first I thought it was my pulse but it's not in time with my heartbeat and I can stop it when I forcibly raise my foot just like I was going to walk on my heels.

I also seem to be getting much more aches and pains from twitching. 18 months of this [email protected] and I'd say it's getting worse.

I get a twitch more often in calves and feet... Say one every two hour, in arms, biceps etc maybe once a day, tongue maybe 10-20 a day with a tingling feeling but this comes and goes at periods of time. I think maybe (I hope) I'm responsible of creating it because over the last months in created a tic of bending and playing with my tongue so I possibly irritated the muscle (I hope)!

It varies (body-wide) from many a second to every few seconds. Cannot imagine going 5 seconds without one!

Been going 20 months now, but recently it has got a lot worse, especially in the Chest/face/neck. I am also now experience pain in my arms and thighs (I'm assuming it is associated with cramp - but who knows). The addition of the "lighting bolt" type (as bobajojo calls it) in my right arm waking me up several times a night is frustrating to say the least.

Calves: around 3-9 times per minute, I can see those without feeling them. But they seem to be non-stop. It looks like lightning when there is a thunderstorm.

A couple of times a day: hand, thighs, butt, upper arm, shoulder, neck, eye or the facial area below my left eye. There is no regularity in those. They don't happen every day. Those I can feel and see (if I look at the right moment).

Another hotspot was my right foot (sole). This was a buzzing kind of feeling that came every day and lasted for up to an hour. This one is gone or at least very very much reduced up to a point where I don't really notice it anymore.

I twitch literally non stop in my calves and feet, 24 hours a day. It's like my calves are wriggling, jumping and popping away whenever I look at them. I joined this site in October 2006 and have been having these constant twitches for 8 years now. I no longer worry about anything sinister going on.

After that long I'm sure you don't

Doesn't seem like there are too many people that say I hardly twitch anymore after that amount of time
