Default I finally figured out my diagnosis, AND...

I have struggled with seeing many different symptoms pop up over the course of 3 years. From difficulting eating to twitching calves muscles to twitching tongue. I tried everything and nothing work. I had an EMG, and was about to go in for an MRI. But I figure it out beforehand, AND.... I don't have ALS.

People, I know your symptoms seem scary, but most of us are tied up in a bundle of stress. I wasted 3 years because in those three years I lived in fear. Do you want to know how I fixed everything? A tube of Bengay. It's a miracle. Twitching is gone, stress is gone, everything is gone. It's all stress people.

I just wanted to tell this story because I know 99% of people worry their symptoms into existence. Try Bengay, get a massage, go on a vacation, spend time outside, go to the movies, buy and XBOX and play Rocket League, what ever it takes to calm the hell down.
