Hard week-need help
« on: June 23, 2014, 04:47:09 PM »
Mondays are tough and my girlfriend is gone for a whole week. I have work his weekend, too. I went to bed last night to my finger twitching four times! Super freaky. Then my leg was twitching this morning near the knee and I'm super bummed. I feel like this is truly als. It's been over five months since the twitching started and it's still here, how's this possible? It has to be something sinister. Nothing else has ever stuck around this long.... Woke up Sunday super sore in my left arm and today my right arm is sensitive to the touch. I just don't get it..

It's not ALS.  I'd suggest making some plans with friends this week, get out of the house, instead of sitting alone worrying for hours.

Seriously, dude.

You have to stop.

It is not ***. It isn't even close to ***. I would actually bet my life on it not being ***. That is how absolutely sure I am.

Logan, if you felt this thigh twitch this morning and also this thumb twitch last night you'd flip out not to mention his random arm/chest pain

You'd lose it if you had half the symptoms I do. I stopped seeking reassurance here because I know it won't do me any good. 

You HAVE to stop, Nolan. Your physical presentation is incredibly timid comparably. Your biggest obstacle is your mentality and constant cyclic worrying behavior. You have nothing going on. It's been 5 months. You're 22.

I've had twitching muscles for, hm, 18 months now. I'm still here -- running, walking, carrying gigantic bags of stuff from Costco, etc. No Dread Diseases. Neuro cleared me as well.

It is extremely bizarre (and for those of us with HA, very upsetting) to see and feel muscles twitch. I too felt absolutely certain that something was horribly wrong. And I was right ... but what's horribly wrong with me is ANXIETY. For you, too, it is extremely unlikely to be anything other than ANXIETY.

By the way -- my sibling also has an anxiety disorder, though more of a social anxiety disorder.  I was talking about my relentless finger twitches.  Sibling was like, "Oh, yeah. Happens to me all the time. I think it's weird, but kind of cool." Said in the most indifferent tone possible! After I got over my shock that someone could receive a Sign of Certain Death with such nonchalance  ::), that response helped me to see that HA is distorting my thinking terribly on this topic.

If you haven't already, google and find another forum where people with BFS post. I read a bit last year, and it was illuminating.

Do your twitches ever stop? I'm hoping mine dissipate completely, but I don't know how common it is for them to stop entirely or how long I might have to wait for them to. I also don't know whether this is anxiety-caused or caused by another factor like 'autoimmune' that BFSers like to speculate about.

I twitch all over. Common symptom of anxiety, subconscious as well. I have literally brought on/off symptoms with my mind. Random/weird- to painful symptoms. The mind is so powerful :(
