I've suffered from ALS anxiety for about 4 months off and on, and now I noticed a little indent on my left arm. I'm dominant on my right arm but these little issue is cause so much anxiety. I've been lifting more with my left arm lately. There is no noticeable weakness. But it's just bothering me! Please help
I have been reading posts on this forum for the past 6 months or so and I would firstly like to say how incredibly sorry I am for all of you who are fighting this terrible disease.
I feel terrible for posting which is the main reason I haven’t posted since numerous symptoms have presented. I am in grad school and my symptoms and the anxiety they are causing is making it extremely difficult to focus on anything school related so I figured it was time to ask for some opinions. Firstly, I am a 23-year-old female. I have always been and am still very active.
Hi my name is Brad I haven't been diagnosed with ALS I've been having weird symptoms like numbness, burning sensations or a prickly feeling It gave me crazy anxiety and I ended up going to the ER and they gave me many tests and said I'm fine. Two weeks after the first symptoms I started getting those muscle twitches which gave me more anxiety ... I also have this continuous pain in my legs mostly my knees and my joints crack every time I move.
I started complaining about leg fatigue in August 2015. After being referred to a vein doctor, who cauterized several veins, the fatigue, or weakness as I call it today, returned within a few short weeks. By February, 2016, I went back to my primary care doctor who said that we might be looking at ALS, which of course freaked me out. As such, I started researching different websites, including the ALS Foundation, which led me to the Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, AZ. In April, 2016, the doctors performed a series of tests, which included an EMG.
Happy new year
