Evening all My Fibro Warriors,
Its been a while since i have asked a question/query, but does anyone suffer with muscle twitches in the face while they are asleep? Sometimes they can be that bad that they will wake me up totally rather the stir me from what sleep that i do have. My lips seem to have it the worst. A majority of the time, its just the corner of my mouth.
When you were a child did anyone ever try and impress your friends with the imaginary needle and thread trick on your top lip and then pretend to pull the thread to make your lip twitch?? That is what mine does, however the twitch is very prominent. Even my daughter has noticed it when i have a "nanna nap" and she even took a picture too, just to show me how far my lip actually went up.I couldn't even open my eye because the twitch was that bad, so my daughter had to gently prize it open as she thought i was messing around to start off with. The other twitch motion that i have is, where both top and bottom lips purse together and i look like i am pouting, although this is a relatively new sensation.
Before all the Elvis impressions started, different parts of my body would jerk/twitch, which i know most people suffer with, however the sensation feels deeper than the "falling sensation" that you get when you are just about to drift off into a deep sleep. This happens when i am, what feels like a deep sleep and my whole body literally shakes the bed. This happened a lot when i was in hospital, as i thought someone was nudging my bed to start off with. Needless to say i didn't get much sleep in hospital.
Now my quandary is, do i shut up and put up or do i make an appointment with my doctor?
Your advise/opinions are greatly appreciated.
