Face twitching

Hi to all haven't been on for a while hope your all doing as well as you can be. Over the past few months I've had a lot of face twitching people look at me like I'm out my face on drugs that doctors haven't given me. My jaw also mores without me even noticing I'm doing it happens all the time now just wondered if anyone else's has these symptoms. Family members have accused me of taking cokecanne whitch is why my face is moving I haven't a clue never tried it bad enough taking the meds the doctor gives me let alone these sort of drugs. My weight lose is becoming a problem for me now I'm now weighing only 7st 8lb but doctors don't see it a problem the first thing they say is do you eat. Of course I bloody do I love my food my IBS is playing a role with this I think but doctors don't seem to care my consultant said to me you not skinny just thin better than being fat. Really is that the answer I'm wasting away you can see ever bone in my body my myscle well what muscle they are just lumps now days please does anyone else have the same symptoms of me really could do with so advise. sending gentle hugs to everyone

  • Hi Dod79

    I have read your post with so much pain and sorrow for what you are having to endure, and I sincerely hope that you can find some resolution to these issues. You do not say what medications you are taking but I would seriously discuss alternatives with your GP as soon as possible. If they will not listen then I would be tempted to go to your local walk-in centre or A&E department and explain everything as this sounds quite serious to me! It could be that you need something simple such as an IBS drug? But please do talk to a medical professional about what is happening for you.

    Please take care of yourself.

    All my hopes and dreams for you

  • Thanks again for your reply I'm at the doctors again this week so I will see what they say but already no the answer they just say it fibromyalgia just get on with it if only doctors actually did something so many people wouldn't be suffering my doctors seem to brush me of with everything I have going on its all fibro thanks again sending gentle hugs

  • Have you ever had your levels of B12, ferritin, folate and VitD tested? Twitching is certainly linked to low B12, once I began the injections my twitching eased very quickly. Alternatively you could ask to be referred to a neurologist. Do hope you find a solution soon. Best wishes MariLiz
