Time for a new Survey

Postby Ginlyn on March 28th, 2007, 2:55 am

This board had survey that is definitely in the archives somewhere that helped me quite a bit when I became anxious, worried, etc. I would read it many times as the questions helped me realize I wasn't alone, and many, many others shared the same symptoms.

I'm going to try and resurrect the questions and hope that all of you will answer.

Ginlyn, what a great idea, I found that survey helpful too at the begining.

Female
31
6 months
feet and calves
pins and needles and a numb left thigh.
Definetly when lying in bed or on the sofa.
Some I can see through my clothes, whilst some I can only feel but not see and vice versa.

Night is the worst
Can easily see facial twitches and of course fingers. Can even "hear" my vibrating...as I brush my wife's hair and accidently brush her ear...like a bug buzzing her. I am electric!!!

3. 7 months this go round. Twitched for about 6-9 months 4 years ago and then it stopped.
4. Feet and calves the most, sometimes biceps, started in hands but they rarely twitch anymore.
5. pins and needles in both feet.
6. Mornings seem the worst, but sometimes right after exercise is pretty bad too.
7. Some I can see, some I just feel... I don't bother looking much anymore.
