What did the neurologist tell you as a cause? Did he mention BFS? Benign Fasciculation Syndrome. By stating you can feel your nurses, did you mean nerves? Do you mean "muscles" as the twitching causes involuntary movements in the extremites the face, around the eyes? Please get back to me with more information and I will send you an answer to help this situation. Dr Frank

You have a diffuse fasciculation syndrome with widespread twitching. The most common cause is an electrolyte disorder such as low calcium or magnesium potassium etc. any reason for that like medications dehydration or stress? Secondly there is bfs benign fasciculation syndrome where this is essentially a muscle disorder. And there is motor neuron disorders of variety of conditions. I hope that answers your question please get back to me to discuss or rate my service if satisfied as that is how I am compensated for my work. Click on the stars. Dr Frank
