Muscle tightness?

Do you guys experience tenseness in your muscles? My left thigh muscle always feels slightly tense or tired, even when I am relaxed in bed. No weakness or anything, thank God!

Yeah sometimes if I am not too careful, I find that I have a tendency to tense up my muscles....and so I have to take a few minutes a day to consciously relax all my tense muscles. I think it is from being generally anxious. My doctor says that we often get tense without realizing what we are doing. Feeling tired and having tired achy muscles is on par with having BFS. I'm sure you are fine. If it continues to bother you, why not make and app. and go see a doctor? He will be able to put your mind at ease better than me! :)

i get tense muscles sometimes. it usually comes around the time that i think that maybe what i have is not really Benign Fasciculation Syndrome but some other illness.

My calf muscle sometimes feels tight, like its about to cramp up. I used to have a lot of muscle cramps when the BFS first started. Fewer now. Soaking in a hot tub sometimes helped. Sometimes it just goes away for no apparent reason.

Hi there-

I have experienced a lot of muscle tension and/or muscle cramps! For me, it seems to travel to different areas of my body. For a while it was my shoulder, then my hands, and now my left leg has been giving me a lot of pain and discomfort. I guess cramping and that type of thing can be a part of BFS, from what I've read on here! Seems that many people experience that along with the twitching!

Take care! :D
