Tongue

Hi All, I know BFS is benign. I don't worry (too) much about progression of symptoms into something sinister, HOWEVER, my tongue twitching is going to put me over the edge. Will it ever go away??

My tongue twitches when I take pseudoephedrin HCl...a decongestant that I guess is some sort of a neuro transmitter...(according to my neuro...) Could you be taking something with that in it?

No, I'm not taking anything other than what was recently prescribed to me to help with symptoms. Neurontin (300mg) for pain and Inderal 40mg. for the tremor in my left hand. I'm sure a decongestant would probably aggravate the twitching though. Thanks for your reply.

ME is Myalgic Encephalopathy commonly known as CFS which is Chornic Fatigue Syndrome.

Hey, that almost sounds like a children's book doesn't it? Sorry, not to make light of it. I wondered if you twitch often in the tongue. Mine went on for about 3-5 days every 15 seconds. It seems to have stopped (Jinx) today. NOw, where it was twitching it feels stiff and looks depressed or slightly sunken. I hate this cra*! Is this to worry about, not that I won't :lol: , but wondering what you and the other twichers think?

Uber,

Do the symptoms of CFS or ME present similarly to BFS including the twitching??
