muscle twitching 14months out (or BFS?)

hey guys, so 14months out, I do definitely feel much better in general. life goes on, and I do work travel etc.
but my muscle twitches are still there, and I think they got worse around 12months out. there are some good days, and some worse days, and anxiety makes it worse. all I’m reading it does point to BFS (benign fasciculation syndrome)
there is a BFS forum….but many of those people take…..guess….benzos lol.
I am wondering if anybody here in the 1+ year mark still has lots of twitching?

Hi all,

I’m currently on 0.25MG of Klonopin and 25MG of trazodone for anxiety and OCD. I’ve cut down to the 0.25MG about 2 months ago and want to get off completely by the end of the summer and be symptom free!

I’m thinking of doing a cut to 0.125MG, holding that for a couple weeks, then either jumping entirely or cutting again down to 0.0625MG for a couple weeks, then jumping.

I’ve been on the klonopin for a total of 8 months.

Hi and welcome!
I made cuts in the same fashion that you did. You have dissolve tabs?
What are you doing with your trazodone? Are you cutting it or leaving it?
How have your OCD symptoms been? Mine are a bit revved up. I do a lot of repeating thoughts/sentences in my head until they “sound right”. Plus some weird twitching etc occasionally in public

Ashton tapers cause tongue twitching

Did anyone have weird tongue symptoms?

I get this weird taste in my mouth, almost metallic or like perfume. I also get tongue twitches and like a feeling that I have something on my tongue, crawling or kind of like pop rocks or food is stuck there. Anyone else have this? The taper also gives me heartburn, so maybe it’s that as well?

What other symptoms did you guys feel?, the sensitivity to hear, red ears, nausea, and vision disturbance is driving me insane.

Never a 100% window... Normal?

I’m 9.25 months off and have yet to experience a 100% window. For me, a 100% window would be to sleep an adequate amount of hours and to NOT have any Hypnic jerks while trying to fall asleep. My best window to date was a night of 7 hours sleep, but still had a few little jerks going to sleep and a lot once I woke and tried sleeping again. Never a day without my worst symptom and feel like I may never be rid of them… Especially since I’m experiencing relentless jerks 75% of the time, maybe getting up to 4, sometimes 5 hours each night.

Anyway, I’m hoping I’m not alone in having never ending horrible symptoms… Without a single day off! Can anyone relate? Especially if you are as far out as me? Hopefully ill hear from those who were like me, but are now getting big windows!
