I have had twitching and jerking for nearly 6 months now. Not the under the skin kind of twitches, but almost like living in a fun-house where each limb, finger and body part moves whenever it feels like.
My hands constantly shake as does my body in sort of a weak and trembling sort of way. I can't sleep with all the twitching going on, so I have to take an ambien every night. I quit drinking coffee, chocolate, sugar, alcohol, work out 4 days a week, yoga twice a week and because of this mess see a therapist once a week.
I have been to the neurologist, psychologist, acupuncturist, medical intuitionist and chiropractor. No one seems to know what to do with me.
The acupuncturist says I have internal wind, which points to a depleted liver. The medical intuitionist also said it sounds like my liver and kidney are depleted.
I have been told it is not Alzheimer’s or Parkinson's which is great, but what is it and how can I make it go away?
Does anyone know how to get this twitching, jerking and shaking stuff to go away?
