18 year old worried about ALS
For the past 6 months I have had many symptoms that are similar to ALS and I am scared that I have it. I have seen a neurologist, hemotologest, and a rheumatologist. No diagnosis from any one although the rheumatologist did consider fibromyalgia.
My symptoms include:
Muscle soreness and cramps
Muscle twitching (all over)
Numbness and tingling (all over)
Noticed some possible muscle wasting around my right wrist
Shortness of breath
I have had an MRI which was clean, EMG on the left side of my body which was normal, and a ton of blood work which shows a low white blood count, elevated liver enzymes, and low neutrophils. I know no one can diagnose anything but does anyone have any ideas. I dont believe that I have had any weekness. And also should I try to get an emg on the right side of my body or does it matter?
