Whose BFS is more above the waist?

Postby TwitchyDoc on February 19th, 2012, 11:35 am

Just curious as for me, I definitely twitch more above waist than on legs. Not sure how common is that. Last days are pretty bad, movement induce arm,hand,shoulder and back twitches..bit anxious again :(

Mine started in legs, then spread all over, then for some time it had stayed mostly in my arms/shoulders and groins (OK, with aditionally calves) and now it is almost completely gone, I have approx. 10 to 30 noticeable twitches a day( counting the single twitches not hot-spots with more that one twitch in a row, if my finger twitches 5 times, I count "5")

Hmm based on the views/answers ration I assume most people have BFS on their legs..makes me nervous..mine were never so twitchy as my upper body.

So now you're worried that you don't twitch so much below the waist. Come on... ;-).

In my case, upper/lower body = same

I just twitch everywhere: feet, legs, arms/hands, belly/chest, back, neck, scalp, face. Upper/lower body 50/50.

With me, 51.25% are upper body. 48.75% are lower body.

It took quite a while to calculate this for you tDoc. :)

I always thought upper because that's where I always feel them--scalp, face, neck, chest, abs, biceps, shoulders, triceps, forearms, fingers, hands, and back. Then I realized my feet twitched 24x7--the scary ones that look really bad, and I can see only in the light, but not feel. So I guess I should feel much better about that huh? :wink:

I have constant twitching in my calves and feet, but I've recently developed constant twitching in my elbows and forearms as well (started 2 months ago). But I get random pops, machine gun twitches, flutters, above my waist all day long. I'd say I feel a twitch above my waist every couple seconds.

I would like to revise my numbers to 65% above the waste and 35% below the waste. I am not sure if I just dont care about twitching in my feet, calves, and quads, but I certainly dont notice them as much as the twitching in my neck, face, biceps, forearms, hands and popping back and traps oh, and dont forget abs.

By now, when I have relapses, I would say 80% above waist by now. That is weird because I started at almost 100% below waist
