i'e been on treatment seems like forever, and i still can't get rid of the facial twitching when i lay down at night.

also the ringing in my ears is horrible.

if i could just get rid of these, i'd feel ok.

that and those red dots all over.

does this stuff ever go away?

I have had muscle twitching (all over body) for 9 YEARS. Not to be a downer, but this can be a way of life for some of us, treatment, or not. Magnesium, or not.

The longest I have ever had one muscle (or muscle group, like in my abdomen) twitch was 3 weeks straight. Same muscle, non stop, 3 weeks tops. then, it "magically" (meaning I did nothing to try and stop it) JUST STOPS. To be picked up by another muscle (or muscle group) at a later date . . . I think it's "normal" for people with lyme.

Randibear...what are the "red dots all over the place" that you refer to?

i think they're called petechaie. it's like you take a red pen and make very small dots all over your body.

some are little larger but not much and some are more deep purple.

it's embarrassing to wear shorts cause i look at other women's legs and they don't have them.

my mom had huge ones, i mean, well, ok, about the size of a dime or larger.

I thought the coinfection Bartonella can cause the red dots?

Or is my memory bad?

I have muscle twtiching (all over my body) as well. It has never really seemed to go away either... some days I will get lucky and not have twitching or only have a few twitches here and there... but some days I have more.

I've gone a month or two with eye twitching that just would not stop that entire time. And then out of nowhere it stopped. I still have eye twitching, but it hasn't been as bad as it was where it would go for a month nonstop!

For me, twitching is the least of my worries. I'd much rather deal with the twitching than with the neurological issues lyme has given me or the heart issues, etc.

But I understand - it does get annoying! And the ringing in the ears would be VERY annoying. I have that from time to time as well. But thank goodness, not too bad.

The twitching in my face has decreased some but i still have signifigant tremors in my hands/fingers/toes (which is like rapid fire twitches).

Make sure that the ringing in the ears isnt a side effect. I think it is one of the possible side effects of zinthromax but my memory might be wrong (it often is).

I have the ear buzzing so i tend to leave music or the tv on except when i sleep so i dont notice it as much.

Hi. That was one of the last symptoms to present itself before I got tested. Once I started treating I also instituted a good quality B6 vitamin with a Bcomplex from Health Food Store and that took care of it after a couple of weeks. Give that a try it may help
