Hello!

I am seeking a LLMD referral for the Boston Massachusetts area.

I was tested negative(Western Blot and ELISA) for Lyme in 2006 when I developed some weird neuro symptoms, such as twitching, tingling, buzzing (diagnosed as BFS). This is still going on now, but symptoms have not gotten worse.

Since then, I've been diagnosed some other potential conditions (heart arrhythmia, neck stiffness, chronic plantar fasciitis, etc) that may or may not related to Lyme. In any case, a friend finally convinced me to see a LLMD for testing.

Any suggestions would be helpful!
Thanks!

What is BFS??

Sent info for MA.

Sounds exactly like LYME to me.

See especially the link on symptoms...

Thanks everyone for the info! Much appreciated.

Lymetoo, BFS stands for Benign fasciculation syndrome. I've just called it my bizarre twitching disease. [Smile] It was annoying at first, but it has not gotten any worse since disgnosis years ago.

According to Wikipedia, it is a neurological disorder characterized by fasciculation (twitching) of various voluntary muscles in the body. The twitching can occur in any voluntary muscle group but is most common in the eyelids, arms, legs, and feet. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benign_fasciculation_syndrome)
