    Hi JoJo,

    I wonder if it'd be worthwhile you ring the MND Connect Helpline who could talk you through things?

    They are open Monday - Friday from 9am-5pm & 7-10.30pm. Phone number is 0808 802 6262

    Love Ellie.

    Hi JoJo,

    To be eligible for the Motability Scheme, your partner would need to be in receipt of 'higher rate mobility allowance' - which he might be able to apply for as part of PIP (as long as he hasn't reached state pension age yet).

    Motability Scheme:-

    Is the twitching killing more muscle if itís more rapid. Some days his whole body including his nose is constantly twitching.

    Not necessarily Jo Jo.

    Sometimes fasciculations / twitches are increased because of external factors such as fatigue, stress or temperature.

    If possible, try to see that he's well fed, hydrated, rested and wearing comfortable clothing.

    Some people find that Riluzole or CBD Oil lessen twitches, others don't....

    Love Ellie.

    Hi Jo Jo,

    They are annoying to more than anything else. Perhaps annoying isn't hard enough.

    Love Terry
