For the last few months I guess you could say I had this muscle stiffness in my wrist forearm and left lower calf. I noticed it whenever I played basketball but it never had any impact on me working out or playing basketball. Recently this stiffness progressed and turned into a weakness above my knee/ upper thigh and my foot has this weird sensation that travels all the way to the tip of my toes. Almost like a tingling sensation but not quite. I also have a slight twitch. I fee fatigued in general but I think that's just depression because of these symptoms. I'm freaking out and scared.
I am a 19 year old male. I guess for the last few months I had this stiffness in my wrist area and around my calf but I never paid attention to it as it never bothered me. Recently since last Friday, the stiffness increased and almost turned into what felt like a growing pain. Since then my leg and arm have felt a little weaker and twitching. My foot has been getting weird sensations all the way to the top of the toes. Right above my knee is very twitchy, weak, fatigued.
I do not know if writing my story down will be of any help to me. I doubt it will be of help to you but I need some way to purge myself of the crazy roller coaster of emotions I'm going through. My therapist suggested I keep a log of feelings and issues as a way to help me cope with ALS. I had tried to journal earlier but hated everything I wrote so I quit writing.
