Is Benign Fasciculations Syndrome progressive? I don't drink, smoke or drink caffeine beverages. I lead a fairly relaxed life as a housewife. I don't exercise other than chasing children around. This past year while taking medications for a kidney infection (7 day course) I started to experience muscle twitching (legs, biceps, buttocks, etc.) that moved from muscle to muscle every few minutes. It then progressed to occurring in several muscles (2-6) consecutively. EMG and nerve tests came out normal two weeks back. Blood work too. Since that time I have experienced muscle twitching in my face, tongue, inner ear, scalp, neck and hands (in addition to all the rest). This is month will mark six months of twitching which has gotten worse as the months pass. Other than the annoying feeling and always being tired (perhaps that's just being a mom of 3) and some recent few and minor headaches (could be the holidays) I feel fine.
Is this syndrome known to be progressive?
If you have the similar symptoms what do you feel was the trigger? Other than the meds I cannot figure it out!!
Thanks for your reply.
