I has serotonin syndrome for 6 months about 2 years back. Took a lot of arguments with doctors and eventually a short stay in a phyc ward to get hem to admit it was the anti depressants causing it. Haven't found any type that doesn't do my very bad depression is now untreated.

That aside I now have a running problem that it I get too stressed and tired the twitch comes back. Or sometimes just when it wants to.

Anyone else having this issue?

It just makes doing anything so much harder and if it does not stop in 3 days then i need high dose muscles relaxers to stop it. Something that doesn't agree well with me either.

I hate when i twitch. The stares and the back handed comments. It just complete wears you out.
This disease is hard enough but this just breaks me every time

I lose control over me left side and right leg but sometimes more than that. They move by themselves as the muscles contract and release. I punch, twitch is weird ways, have neck jerks and back jerks. Get jumping muscles in my back and face as well.

Testing lets see 4 MRI, the cap with the electrodes for the brain 4 times. Nerve conduction tests. Multiple different blood tests. Nothing shows on any of them. Its frustrating. Lots of thing have been eliminated like epilepsy as the meds for that doesn't stop it.

All that seems to help is taking valium for a couple of days then it goes away but i want to be able to stop it from starting at all.

I would see a good board certified rheumatologist. They deal with muscles and joints and should be able to see what is going on with you. The involuntary movement was f your limbs isn't a side effect of Fibro as fat as I've heard. We will get little twitches in a muscle where we can see th skin move...things like that. You might have something else going on along with fibro.

For your depression, have you tried a light box? This helps many. It raises the chemicals in your brain without medication and could help you. It would be worth checking into.
