Customer Question

Hi, I started twitching on my cheek and then a few days later it was all over my body. I had been under alot of stress and had a sinus cold when the cheek twitches started. This has been going on for just over 4 months now. I have seen a neurologist who listened to all my symptoms and did a detailed clinical and said it was BFS. I was happy with this and my twitching is maybe only 10 twitches per day now. However for the last 10 days i have had slightly nasal voice with a dry throat and sometimes a blocked nose and trouble breathing through my nose. If it wasnt for the twitching i would not be worried and would put it down to allergies that sometimes i get or a cold. Of course I am worried that this may be bulbar onset. I have no slurred speech or swallowing problems and my wife says she doesn't notice any difference im my speech. I am male age 33. Does this sound like bulbar and would it start with body wide twitching surely if that was the case i would have weakness etc before it moved to the bulbar region ? Also my wife says I am snoring at night which would happen if my nose was blocked up.

This sounds like anxiety.

There is no such thing as a disease called bulbar.

Not sure what you mean by that
