need some help

Last year starters to have buzzing/spasms in upper right leg, followed by entire leg, both legs and eventually both arms as well. I have weakness on/off hard to fold laundry or hold a book (even just holding book propped up on belly). Am now having spasms in neck and back.  fatigue seems to be only common denominator.  I have fibrosis but this is spreading and worsening.  Neuro put me on klonopin 2x daily. While I am diagnosed with fm mayo clinic believed more is going on but could not diagnose me. Anyone else have this? Also have various neuro problems but last mri (I could afford) was inconclusive. Local doc just suggested mg BUT I don't have trouble breathing.  Spasms/twitches are still not visible but can be felt by others. They start almost as soon as I am active.

Thank you.

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Was an EMG or nerve conduction studies done? They could help diagnose. Otherwise, abnormal involuntary movements (AIMs) are also known as 'dyskinesias'. Tremor, chorea, dystonia and myoclonus are examples of types of dyskinesia which have different mechanisms and modalities of treatment.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
