1. Age
- 46
2. Gender
- Male
3. Race
- Caucasian
4. Length of time you have been twitching?
- Between 2 and 3 months now
5. Was there anything that appeared to trigger the twitching. (i.e. viral infection)
- I had a steroid injection one week prior to beginning of symptoms. Synthetic Fluorinated steroid known to cause muscle weakness - Betamethasone. I am sure anxiety and stress have also fueled the symptoms as I quit my job after 16 years in August to pursue a new career, my duaghter (second child), was born in April, and I had to move in June.
6. Do you have any Anxiety or OCD disorders?
No
7. Any other medical conditions that may be connected to BFS?
I had a running injury to my groin for the past four years which has not healed and was the reason I received the steroid injection.
8. Did you go through the typical ALS scare so common on this forum?
Yes. Still there, though this site has been reassuring.
9. Body region most affected?
Left foot / toes and top of foot, calves, thighs, arms.
10. Most unusual area affected?
abdominals
