Guys... can anyone help?

I've heard about MS and twitching. How would i know? - I'm worried about MS now!! - MY muscles aren't weak they just jerk out of nowhere for some reason. Not constantly... but just too much for my liking!

Thanks for all the help so far... but the MS fear is getting to me a bit. Can anyone clear up the difference? :S

Go check ALS and twitching, it's much worse.  :P Like I said above, you are fine, it's BFS. Just go to www.aboutbfs.com and you'll see many people with same thing.

Hey Hypo, Thanks for the comment :)  - BFS does seem possible tbh

I am more worried about MS really..... now my legs feel weird. I just think i'm focusing on it.

My calves jerk, fingers do soemtimes.... MS just scares me all of a sudden :(

I have had muscle twitches for 8 months. I even went and got an EMG to rule out ALS. They have gotten better but I still have them. Each twitch heightens my anxiety. I have to make a conscious effort to talk myself down and to know that if it was something serious like ALS the disease would have progressed by now. Give it time and if nothing gets worse you are fine! Hang in there!

Yes, I twitch all the time. My thumb, my feet, my hands, eyelids, muscles in legs. It's anxiety.
