Has Anyone Ever Experienced Body Wide Muscle Twitching?

Has Anyone Ever Experienced Body Wide Muscle Twitching?

I have not been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, or anything else. I saw a Neurologist (Neuromuscular specialist) last year for the twitching. Didn't really get answers . Ran thorough blood work. since I had a normal exam, suggested Benign Fasciculation Syndrome. My symptoms for the last 2 years......

Well, actually it sounds like fibro to me, but there are many autoimmune diseases that fibro resembles. Yes, twitching, and painful twitching too. Yes tingling all over, and tapping, and sometimes I feel like I'm vibrating especially at night lying in bed. But doc says that's peripheral neuropathy for me. The rest of your symptoms are classic fibro. Severe muscle pain, dry skin, cold, etc. But those are also thyroid problem symptoms too! Have your doctor run tests. Fibros don't just have painful muscle problems. It is sort of an umbrella disease. We often also have IBS, Raynaud's, hypothyroidism, chronic migraines, neuropathy, arthritis, hypoglycemia, TMJ, severe allergies, degenerative disc disease, scoliosis, heart palpitations, lung issues, painful female problems, and I mean for instance in my case allllllll of the above and more. The list is endless. It used to be that to get the diagnosis of fibromyalgia you had to also have something wrong with every major organ. Head, heart, lung, bowels, female organs. It was considered an "umbrella" disease... covered every part of the body.

Yes Ive been here for months. I immediately went on b12, magnesium, and other brain nutrients. I also did dry heat sauna, and hot tub. Look for Magnesium calm in the Vitamin Shoppe and try it.

I have the twitching. It started about 6 years ago for me and it gets worse with each passing year. It can be embarrassing. I will drop things without any control. And even my speech twitches

Yep, it was one of my first symptoms. My muscles twitched constantly all over my body for 3 years straight. I only get them occasionally now.

Yes can relate. Have been through all the test and there is no test for Fibro. The Neuro dr. at least said I don't have MS and anything else. I was diagnosed in 09 and really flair up after lyme. Spasms, twitching, itching, sweating, foggy brain, burning feet and hands, constantly going to the bathroom, IBS, anxiety, which I have to see a shrink for. No meds yet, have to wait to see if they give me anything. Hang in there, all of had to search for some time.
