I never had any doubt.  Hopefully you can finally put this away.  I'm happy for you.

Yes I have, Mexican. It's a pretty handy resource.

Thank you everyone. I just hope is 'sticks' and my mind doesn't strategize a way in which 'I COULD STILL HAVE IT'.

Scary Symptoms website eh?  Sounds SCARY LOL  Not sure if it would be a "handy resource" as stated by Nomcom........icom , or if it would trigger more anxiety.  My poor body is exhausted from this stupid stress.

There was no follow-up EMG. Only a clinical and a statement of, 'you don't have ___, get your anxiety under control. Here's a referral. And twitches can be benign'.

no they will ask you to create a resistance to them when they push against your hand and arms and legs, check your relfexes, this is usually enough to say you are fine goodbye. unless they see something wrong which they wont

Exactly, but that is rarely enough for the healthy anxious.  We want a full body PET scan, sleep studies, EMG, nerve conduction, MRI, the top specialist in the nation to see us, blood work, urine tests, measurements of our saliva, then a 2 hour sit down with a panel of world renowned experts to explain away every symptom.  Then we might be convinced, maybe.  And if so, we will move onto the next scary disease.

The fact is this, if you can pass a clinical especially in the young...you are ok.
