You don't have ALS, you have BFS. There are different groups that get benign fasiculations, those groups are: athletes that exercise and especially if they eat a high fat high protein diet, another group is people that get it after infection, another group is of course those with anxiety. Fasiculations are tiny contractions. There is no research in it. It is a benign condition meaning it seems you have it forever, but it never gets worse. Exercise makes it worse, but don't give up exercising. Exercise makes it worse because of free radicals and antioxidants and circulating lactic acid after a work out. Don't listen to the people that say take magnesium. Don;t take magnesium without having levels checked first. Get checked for lymes and B12 deficiency as well. Other than that, if you go to a neurologist you will probably have hyperreflexia on exam, and you will have a normal MRI and normal EMG. So while this condition is benign it is very difficult to live with. It takes about a year before you come to accept it. You will have good days and bad days. I've had it 17 months now, and i have talked to people that have had it over 20 years. It sucks. But it will never progress into MS or ALS so fortunately, we will never get worse, we just will have to live with daily twitching forever. It may get worse around your period and if you get sick, too, but then gets better. Caffeine will make it worse, too. You will get hotspots. It will be bodywide. Some days you may only have 3 fasics all day while other days it may be nonstop. Try not to worry, it's very annoying to live with, but it IS benign and does not progress at all into anything that would disable you.
