Elle I don't know where you read that BFS is rarer than ALS. It is not! Millions of people have it. I went online to make sure I was right and every reputable site started with lines like BFS is much more common than any neuromuscular disease. I remember knowing that back many years ago when I had one of my ALS freak outs.
You have anxiety that appears to have caused BFS or merely your body's reaction to stress.
Remember that you can feel fine but the effects of earlier anxiety can store up in your system and "attack" at any later time.
First off, I love y'all two.. !! Second.. ellebel you said you were at your mom's your thigh twitched and what happened then?? Your mind said holy shit nooooo it's happening again.. then it happens again then your leg is buzzing.. it's from the adrenaline your body is pumping to that leg. You got anxious. Every darn time I get anxious my thigh buzzes. Sorry but I always heard that wide spread twitching like thigh to foot to calf etc is not an als symptom.. so idk what your gp meant by her comment. We might not have bfs but we do have twitches caused by anxiety . As well as a lot of others in this forum. Hugs.. it's a set back but nothing else. You don't have ALS.
Yes, yes and more yes. As well as your hand finger might be over used and tired. I had calf twitches with anxiety. Sorry it's not a fun symptom.. the more you worry about it the more it likes to twitch.
Has anyone ever had finger twitching..? I am familiar with eye twitches because i get them when my anxiety is high. Today i noticed my index finger had a small twitch every few seconds . Not when it was occupied like writing or typing but when at rest. Could this too be a sign of being anxious today?
