I have had extreme twitching for several months now........
I get them everywhere!!! legs, arms, tongue, chin, eyes, ect.ect...I also would get slow spreading numbness on the left side of my body from my face down to my leg.......I visited emergency room for possible stroke(I am 29 years old) and they said I was fine...Just ANXIETY they would say. The numbness has been there on and off for years......About once or twice a month sometimes with a headache sometimes without.
After going to my Neurologist and after Brain MRI and MRA , he diagnosed me with Migraines with prolonged neurological aura.......I persisted that the twitching was constant and scary(I thought ALS)
Finally he gave me an EMG and diagnosed me with Benign Fasciculation Syndrome...Does anyone out there have that????? He pretty much ruled out ALS and said there was no weakness or atrophy............
But This Twitching is just constant......Does anyone know if it is possible to still have ALS even though EMG and all other tests have ruled it out............Are They ever wrong??????I have two small kids and I am just so scared....

Sorry to keep going on and on this is my first time to visit the healthboards...........
