Brief Answer: This is a difficult one to approach! Detailed Answer: Thank you for forwarding the french version to me.It is very informative and straight to the point. I have reviewed the information and have tried to even do further research on the symptoms and information you have reported. Without any abnormality noted on the EMG, it means the nervous pathways are all functioning normally. This make a neurological problem less likely. I would like to know if these symptoms associated with any particular circumstances or environments. This is because they may simply represent an exaggerated response to stimuli or events that are out of proportion. If this be the case, then may be addressing it in a psychological context like generalized anxiety may be more meaningful. For now, I will suggest that you get investigated and probably managed as a case of generalized anxiety. If this helps, then that is fine. if it doesn't, then I will suggest monitoring to see whether there would be any more clues or symptoms that can make the diagnosis more evident in future. To be honest, the symptoms are not typical of any well described diseases process as of now.I can only hope that they are transient or would be more defined in future t help us make certain the diagnosis and management plan, I wish you well and the best possible outcome.
