    Common symptoms of BFS are frequent muscle twitches (fasciculations or fascics), generalized fatigue, "pins and needles" sensations, migrating numbness, muscle cramping and/or spasms in the affected areas (usually the feet and calves), muscle aches and stiffness exercise intolerance, headaches, and itchiness.

    I came across this doing research on the internet. I saw a neuro and told him about my fasciculations and he said they were nothing to worry about. It does sound a lot like CFS/FMS, doesn't it?

    I think I'm going to make an appt at the FFC in Atlanta...I think they test for lyme there. I wonder if my normal dr. would do it. Even though she already thinks I'm nuts.

    I'm pretty sure it's a good thing for your doc to think you're nuts. There's a touch of intimidation in the unknown and it gives you an edge! Maybe you could wear a costume next time you visit?

    Let us know if you go to FFC and how it goes there.

    Take care!
