BFS Treatment

Sep 1, 2000

Is there any treatment for this awful Benign Faciculation Syndrome. This thing is about to drive me nuts. I twitching and faciculations all over my body whenever I am resting or after I exercise. I've tried cutting out the caffeine, changing my diet and now I'm on prozac. I've had blood work and all sorts of test. Please help me!

Response from Dr. Pavia

This is a neurologic problem involving abnormal signals at the motor endplates of the muscles. None of us are neurologists, so we are probably not expert enough. You need to find a neurologist with an interest in neuromuscular disorders. S/he can confirm the diagnosis (very important) and work through a variety of possible treatments.

Good luck
