Default Diagnosed Jan 22nd...

My neurologist diagnosed me with"possible als" about a week & 1/2 ago. Here's my question: is "possible" more likely than not to progress on to "probable", then, ultimately, "definite"? I realize, of course, that there is no one way this disease progresses, but I'm just talking about the law of averages here...

My impresssion is that the neurologist is sure it's als, but can't find the evidence to confirm it. I'm pretty much suspecting the same. Have another battery of tests coming up - a 4th MRI, a breathing test, even more blood draws and a spinal Tap (lumbar puncture) this Thursday. Anyone out there have any thoughts?
