to alleviate the symptom consistently BFS is fairly rare and has a range of other causes apart from infection, including following the use of medications (especially allergy drugs) Benign Fasciculation Syndrome A fasciculation (or "muscle twitch ") is a small, local, involuntary muscle contraction (twitching) visible under the skin arising from the spontaneous discharge of a bundle of

'benign fasciculation' and 'fasciculation syndrome' is a disorder of the nervous system characterized by the uncontrolled twitching (fasciculation) of muscle groups in various parts of the body Benign fasciculation syndrome is not a serious or debilitating condition In some patients it has been found to develop following viral infections They can resolve on their own, especially if the trigger is discovered and eliminated Even the tongue can be affected benign fasciculation syndrome This is not an absolute contra-indication for botox, meaning that it would likely be safe to proceed However, because of the well-recognized association of fasciculations and ALS, some people, especially medical personnel or those with a family member with ALS, are more likely to be concerned about
