No, I don't have that.

Do you? This will bump up for more views.

Are you saying that it's from the Rifampin...or from bart?

Dystonia like repetitive muscle twitches? Rifampin increased my twitching ten-fold when I was on it, but I don't think this was an effect of the Rifampin, it was my Bartonella flaring that the Rifampin was working against.

Twitching is a classic Bartonella symptom, and Rifampin is a Bart drug. My Bart twitches that Rifampin brought out feel repetitive, fluttery, "under the skin," and last anyway from a couple seconds to a minute. I get them most often in my butt, thighs, shoulders/chest, and eyelids.

dystonia - is not twitching (which are fasciculations)

With dystonia - the muscles contract involuntarily - causing repetitive twisting motions.

I've had the fasciculations...and mostly they can't be seen - they're under the skin...except a few bad ones here and there I could see...but still not like dystonia.
