i get infrequent fascics at rest. It tends to happen when stressed / tired.
However these fascics when i lightly contract the muscle happen and have happened continuously for the last 14 months whenever I lightly contract the muscle. It happens between the thumb and index finger, the outside of the thigh and the inside of the foot.
I have read people with bfs complaining of the same thing. Its just it hasn't stopped in the 14 months. Its like a flickering but it stops when i rest the muscle.
I do occasionally get a twitch after i've contracted the muscle, a bit like it can't calm down.
thanks for getting back to me.
I have had these fasciculations, especially in the muscle between my thumb and forefinger for approximately 14 months now. I feel i've lost some subcutaneous fat on the hand in question.
In something like ALS, how soon would you notice real weakness if a muscle such as that was twitching?
