I am typing this over found it at MedHelp sorry didnt know how to get it over here.

YOU PROBABLY REMEBER ME, I HAVE HAD FASICULATIONS FOR
OVER SIX MONTHS NOW. ALMOST ALL ARE IN MY CALVES AND SOME AT
RANDOME IN OTHER AREAS.
I HAVE HAD 3 NEURO DRS TELL ME IT IS BENIGN AND HAD ONE EMG
STUDY AFTER 2 MONTHS OF TWITCHING .
THE EMG WAS PERFORMED BY THE HEAD OF NEUROLOGY AT THE NERVE AND MUSCLE CENTER OF TX. AT BAYLOR COLLEGE. BY A NEUROMUSCULAR SPECIALIST. HERE ARE THE RESULTS.
ALL NORMAL, INS ACT, FIBS, PSW, FASIC (SOME IN 2 AREAS), CRU,
AMP, DUR, POLY, RECRT.
ALL SHOW NORMAL ALSO NORMAL SESORY STUDIES.
I STILL HAVE NO WEAKNESS AT ALL AFTER SIX MONTHS AND THE TWITCHES ARE GETTING LESS FREQUENT AND MUCH MORE MILD.
I CAN STILL WORKOUT, WITH EVEN BETTER STRENGTH THAN BEFORE
AND RUN 5 MILES W/OUT CRAMPS OR ANYTHING ELSE.
QUESTIONS:
1. HAVE YOU SEEN NORMAL EMG REPORTS AND NORMAL EXAMS WHEN A
PATIENT IS HAVING FASICULATIONS THAT WERE REALLY *** .
THE MAYO REPORT SAID NO BUT IT IS VERY OLD?
2. IS 6 MONTHS WITH NO WEAKNESS AND 3 DR EXAMS ALONG WITH
NORMAL EMG, ENOUGH SO I CAN GO ON WITH MY LIFE WITHOUT FEAR?
3. IN MY LAST CLINICAL EXAM THE DR. SAID HE HAD NEVER SEEN A
PATIENT WITH OUT WEAKNESS WHO HAD A** HE SAID ONE EMG WAS ENOUGH I DID NOT NEED TO REPEAT IT , HE SAID 6 MONTHS OF TWITCHING WOULD NOT GO BY WITHOUT SOME CHANGES IN STRENGTH
IF I HAD MUSCULAR PROBLEMS, DO YOU AGREE?
THANK YOU FOR YOUR ANSWERS AND COMPASSION , I NEED TO MOVE
ON WITH MY LIFE IN THE WORST WAY. PLEASE HELP ME TO UNDERSTAND.

ANSWERS:
1. NO
2.YES
3. FOR THE MOST PART, YES

AFTER EXTENSIVE NEUROLOGICAL EXAMS, TESTING, AND REASURANCES FROM MANY OF THE TOP NEUROLOGISTS IN THE COUNTRY, I THINK ITS PRETTY SAFE TO SAY THAT YOU'RE IN THE CLEAR. TURN OFF YOUR COMPUTER AND GO OUTSIDE. ENJOY THE DAY.

THIS IS ANSWERS FROM THE CLEVELAND CLINIC I HOPE IT HELPS.
