I usually have periods where the twitching goes mad, then I may have none for months....

my twitches are like reflexes,like when a Dr hits your knee to get a reflex and your knee moves on its own.I get them in my arms & legs mainly but have them in my face and hands sometimes as well.

I have twitches to hands, arms and legs. Mine improved on low oxulate diet as well as other symptoms. You can look it up on internet.

i suffer from tourette's aswell as fibro, my tourettes presents itself in the form of twitching rather than then swearing and shouting that most people associate with tourettes so its hard to tell which of my twitches (if any) are through fibro or just my tourettes!

thanks,I had a look at the diet .It looks very complicated ,I don't think my fibro fogged brain could cope with it just at the moment but I'll bear it in mind.

I twitch all the time and have been told I have Myoclons Dystonia.

Twitches are common with FM but they should be infrequent. If they become severe then you should see someone. I had to have EEgs.

I punch out with my twitches, I drop things, kick things, jump off my chair with them all sorts of fun stuff.

I get them in my hands, arms, legs, feet, back and head. I look very odd sometimes but it is just another part of the joy if having FM.
