I stopped twittching

I stopped twitching for almost two weeks. I thought it was over and I was so happy. Now the twitching is back. This sucks :(

Wow, this is awesome. If you did once, you will twice, and so on... I am really happy for you and I hope it will happen to me one day or another :)

My twitching stops for extended periods every so often and I miss it. I sort of miss the sensation.

I'm in the same boat as Mario. If given a choice, I would keep the twitching. I'd miss it for sure.

I don't really have pain or soreness or joint problems anymore so I really don't mind BFS for the most part. I mean, so I twitch, so what? As I have said many times before, as BFSers our enemy isn't really the muscle twitches, our enemy is actually our interpretation of our muscle twitches. If you don't mind them (as I don't anymore), they might as well be freckles or a wart or your nose or brown hair. They are just a tiny insignificant part of what makes you a person.

To me, complaining about muscle twitches after five years would be like complaining about the fact that my legs are sort of bowlegged. It's like, okay, and?

I stopped twitching after only 3 months. I kinda miss it! Although unfortunately I still have the tingly pinky fingers :s
Now I just get the occasional twitch. Don't know if it was the magnesium supplements or just not worrying about it anymore.
