Just wondering if anyone is versed in the difference between als and bfs. I have had problems with twitching on different parts of my body for the last 7 months or so. One twitch, here and there (arm/hand/foot/thigh/side of torso, tongue), that I notice when I am sitting still or going to sleep. It's not that"going to sleep" type of twitching either. No pain.No weakness noticed. Some days are more pronounced than others, I can't really associate it with anything in particular. I am probably a little more type A neurotic than some, but I don't know. Someone on a different post suggested that healthcare workers have it more than others and I have been one for the last 9 years. I've asked around at work and people have brought up low calcium, low magnesium, and dehydration. I have tried to fix them all, but nothing has really changed. I'm a pretty healthy person overall,so I was unclear about the nutrition thing.
If anyone can make it a little easier for me to distinguish,I'd really appreciate it!!
