mdh157 that was a fantastic response and I totally agree. Hello everyone, I am new to the forum and I have been reading a large majority of you guys responses about BFS and can relate to all of you. I have had the diagnosis of BFS for 15 years. It started when I was in high school 15 years of age as I remember like it was yesterday. My first twitch ever was my R hand 5th finger (pinky) and at first I was surprised and amazed. However, soon after I began experiencing intense twitching every place you can possible imagine from my head to my toes. At the time I to had EMG test completed with proved negative for and nerve damage and at the time just diagnosed me to be going through a growth spurt lol. Twitches progressed with the hope they would cease but never did. For me college was very intense and it seems the common factor for most of us is stress and anxiety. The kicker for me is that I am an extremely organized person and felt that I relatively had no stress thus keeping to do list and a prioritized order to execute each task. As I have matured (now 30), I have really learned my body throughout the years and have realized that despite my organization I truly am stressed. I do not take any medication and simply take a multi vitamin daily. I use to be down on myself because I do not know not one person who does not have some level of stress but somehow we are the lucky few for out body to not fully understand how to channel stress and anxiety and it expresses this through relentless annoying muscle twitches. I do make certain that I complete my activities that can help me to live a more stress free life like daily exercise to name one. I also have noticed that my body needs more hydration than my family friends whether exercising or not and I feel this helps me some as well. I have noticed the more dehydrated I am (like having a day of fun at the pool last summer) really puts me in a bad predicament for twitching the following days. I am continuing to learn my body and make adjustments but still have some bad days and better days. Sleeping is definitely tough most of the time but meditation has been my new hobby and has helped me gain better nights of sleep. I do believe that one day I wont experience a single twitch and I can feel normal like I did prior to 15 years of age. However, I will not let BFS defeat me. I hope I helped someone with my experience because you guys I have helped me express a secret that 95% of ppl I am affiliated with don’t know about me.
