ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
For two years, I have experienced muscle twitches and cramping. It started in my left lid and has now progressed all over my body but is the worst in my left leg and my right upper arm. It is so bad that I feel like my leg is running a marathon when I am trying to sleep. I wake up exhausted every day. I have been to 4 neurologists including one in Manhattan, New York (Cornell) (I live in Florida), One in Cleveland Clinic in Palm Beach Gardens, Fl.,one in University of Florida, Gainesville. No one seems to be able to help. They have all prescribed medication but nothing seems to stop the cramps and twitching. I was an extremely active person and now the depression is starting to take its toll. Even during yoga class, my arms, legs fingers and toes cramp and I have to stop and rub to try to relieve the cramp. It is debilitating. The answer I get is CFS...cramp fasciculation syndrome, but that there is nothing to be done about it." No money for research " because it is not fatal, but it is "fatal" to my quality of life. Maybe someone in this world can help with a prescription "cocktail" that has worked for this illness. Please help. Just want to be able to sleep and exercise.
