Does this sound like cramp fasciculation syndrome?

Posted , 3 users are following.

I am a 26 year old female healthcare provider. Last November I started experiencing widespread muscle twitching and spasms. All blood work (CK, antibodies for myasthenic syndromes) came back normal. EMG and NVC were also normal. I have brisk reflexes all over. I have significant anxiety regarding my symptoms and am now having frequent panic attacks. I go to see a neuromuscular specialist in August, but it's hard not to worry about my symptoms.

    My son was having some panic attacks and anxiety. One time he phoned me and asked me to take him to the hospital. His heart rate was through the roof. Last I heard, a couple of years ago, he was seeing a therapist and learning mindfulness. Seems to have done the trick, although I am not aware of any other treatment he may have received. I did suggest he stop taking a medication to save his hair (not rogaine) but I don't think he has. Thought it could have caused the symptoms. Is there anything in your life which could be causing symptoms, either the pains or the anxiety as an unwanted side effect?

    Anxiety is getting worse. Try medication for the moment, and work on confronting what makes you anxious.
