I am a 39 year old female. I have had a tendency toward fasciculations since childhood. In my early 20s I saw a neurologist who looked me over and pronounced them benign. I have always had them off and on but in the last month they have gone crazy. There isn't one moment all day where I cannot feel one in my leg, then stomach, then arm, back, neck, tongue, toe, hand, face--I had one really big one in my right shoulder for about 3 days that you could see through my clothes but thankfully it went away. It is terrible.

I have no weakness at all. In fact, I started a weightlifting program in January and had no problem at all (I have since stopped) I also do Yoga and my balance/strength are fine. I am very worried that I have ALS. What does this sound like? Why the constant crazy fasciculations? Oh, and sometimes my feet or legs feel like they're "buzzing." Help!
