This is my first post here. I am a big guy, 6'4 and muscular, and have been doing fairly well after being diagnosed (after many tests) with FMS 13 years ago. However, over the past three months I have experienced new symptoms which are pretty worrying. My muscles twitch everywhere, eyes, torso, limbs etc., and, more alarmingly, mere seconds after starting to use my hands the muscles in my arms and fingers feel completely exhausted, as if I've been lifting weights. This happens when cutting food, holding down a button on my phone to leave a voice message, brushing teeth etc. I can reproduce twitching by exerting a muscle, for instance, pursing my eyes shut will lead to eye twitching, continuing for a minute thereafter. I went to the Neuro, he did more scans of brain and neck which were clear (again), and said I should live with it. Do any of you have muscles which fatigue so quickly, but recover within minutes, only to fatigue again when they are used? Thanks in advance - I am trying to re-assure myself!
