hi everyone im sorry i keep on returning to the forum but i promise you all this will be the last time
so ill try to keep it as short as possible:
-Im 19 years old
-i've been feeling weak for the past month or so...but i know its not clinical weakness cuz i can do a pushup and walk down/up stairs as well but do feel as if my legs and arms arent 100%...i ran probably 100 meters this weekend full speed and didnt trip but i've read here that even pple with ALS can still run
-my right arm and right hand feel weaker or not as well co-ordinated as before esp my fingers
-my jaw has been getting tighter...i used to have clicks in my left side of my jaw but now its only on the right and it feels as if the entire jaw is getting tighter. I dont THINK i have any problems swallowing food or drinking. I do sometimes feel a lump in my throat after eating food...i do at times feel as if my saliva is thick and mucus-like
-the neurologist said i have ankle clonus in my right leg (which is where im also having twitching in my toes) (i've had a surgery in that leg in childhood to correct the fact that i walked on my toes) i've been having this weird clumsy feeling in my ankle while i walk but i havent been tripping or falling YET. the neurologist blew off the fact that i have ankle clonus and said it was caused by the surgery but i've never had this clumsy or "weird" feeling before in ankle.
-I had only 1 EMG test done and that was in my right leg region (from near my ankle to right below my knee region) and the doc said everything was normal
-the day after the EMG test i noticed the twitching in my toes in the right food and slight atrophy on the bottom of my right foot...i also feel as if my toes on my right foot arent curling down all the way as in my left foot...plus while i walk i feel as if the soles of my right foot arent completely down as it is in my left foot
What do you guys think? Any tests I can perform to reassure myself?
Im truely sorry I know many well be frustrated but I promise this is my last post
