It's been a long time for me......

Hi all. I don't know if any "old timers' are on here anymore. I am Amy....AKA "cardu". I joined the BFS forum years ago when I began twitching after receiving two doses of the Hepatitus Series. I went through what ALL of you are probably going through right now. I had numerous doctors run tests on me and finally received a dx of "benign fasciculation syndrome" with cramping of course! I just wanted to stop by and say hello to anyone who is still on here from when I was freaking out. I also wanted to share with any new people who are suffering mentally and physically with this condition. I am still twitching.....with "hot spots"......6 years later. At times they are annoying, especially when I have a "hot spot" for like a week. This comes and goes and I don't even think/worry about it anymore. It has taken years to get to this point, but I am fine. Get your tests done and try in your heart to believe your doctors when everything comes back normal. I know it's hard. This consumed my whole life for years, I missed out on things with my kids.....mentally anyways. I was always here with them, but half here. My mind was always wondering and worrying. I pray that all of you can get to this point someday. I will keep all of you in my thoughts. Take care.
If any of you remember me, drop me a line. I'd love to hear how everyone is doing.

Amy,

Thanks for coming back to update us on your obvious well being. Even though I joined in the last year or so I still read posts from long ago and remember yours. The time you took to update us is a very generous message that the outlook for all of us is very positive.
