I already filled in, but my scanner is broken so I need to get my results scanned in somewhere else

Mine is all filled out and ready to go, just waiting to receive my full report from the Mayo clinic. As soon as I get it in the mail, I'll send it all off with a full library of twitching vids! -Matt

Just received my info from the Mayo clinic and forwarded it on to Dr. Carvalho. If anyone else reads this and is willing to participate, please do! Although, he's going to be busy for the next few days viewing twitching videos :)

Well, only 2 people participated so far what I have been told (which makes 3 with me) - please, if you can, join this study, most likely we will not have opportunity like that in the future.

I agree. I'm sure this will be an interesting study and potentially be of good use in the future to help calm newer twitchers!

If you've had an EMG but don't have the report, all you have to do is call your neuro and they'll mail it to you. C'mon, we can do better than just 3 of us! :D

lifewithbfs: If you have at least the report from neurologist saying that your compaint is fasciculations (or that he noted fasciculations), then you are welcome to join. It is kinda strange to do just NVC - maybe you have had major sensory issues? If you have a video on YT, the better.


For the others: As Matt said, we can do better than just 3 of us. Especially important for tongue twitchers who have not any evidence (meaning literature) that this can be benign - this study should mention it. But we need you!

Yes, I do have more sensory issues, I don't have any Video , has my twitch is very small , hardly any one can see, couple of time I told my PD, to look but he can't see, and just ask me to take muscle relaxer :twisted:

lifewithbfs: if your twitching is that minimal, why do you even call it BFS? I would say if you do not twitch in at least 3 regions frequently and daily, be happy but this study should be aimed on "severe BFS".

So I assume nobody else will join - this kinda sucks, people are asking for support and when they can do something for the others and medical community, they do nothing.

I will send everything to doctor Carvaloho email.
I am Brasilian and here we speak portuguese. Dr Carvalho speaks portugueese too so I think I dont need to translate the exams. am I correct?
