#3'S

Postby Moeman on March 1st, 2004, 7:29 pm

Hi John,

I was reading your post in regard to the type 1,2 & 3 twitches. I have a question about the #3's. You stated they are fine and associated with pain described liks a insect bite in a varying degree. Where do you experience these #3's and how often. One symptom I am still attempting to sort out are the fine ticks I have on my face. I experience these ticks frequently throughout the day and some time in waves. They occur on my face, lips, scalp, nose, ears....all over the head. Rarely associated with pain but sometime will vibrate and even feel like I have walked into a spider web around the lips and nose. Most of the time it is just a persistent constant tick taht drives me crazy....any ideas?

Any insight would be appreciated, Al
Take care. Moeman

Where do you experience these #3's and how often. One symptom I am still attempting to sort out are the fine ticks I have on my face. I experience these ticks frequently throughout the day and some time in waves (several at one time) They occur on my face, lips, scalp, nose, ears....all over the head. Rarely associated with pain but sometime will vibrate and even feel like I have walked into a spider web around the lips and nose. Most of the time it is just a persistent constant tick, very light but drives me crazy....any ideas?

Any insight would be appreciated, Al

Type 3's

Postby John_JR on March 27th, 2004, 1:52 am

I've been out of town, but I'll do my best to answer your question.

"Type-3" as I describe them are pain sensations of varying degree. They "feel" like random stinging sensations. Unlike a muscle twitch in which the nerve fires towards the muscle causing it to twitch, these "pain twitches" are when the nerve fires towards the brain. Because it is a strong enough signal, the brain registers it as pain. Our peripheral nervous system is comprised of motor nerves (nerves going to muscles) and sensory nerves (nerves going to the brain). It is my observation that my BFS is a nerve problem affecting these two groups of nerves.

I'm still convinced this might be related to some unknown or yet to be discovered pathogen.
