Unhappy concerned

first time poster here. i have been reading through these for forums for the last few days hoping to find some answers but have not come across anything that points to me. lost my mother a few months to ago in a car accident. less than a month letter had pain in my shoulder blade. looked on the internet to see what it could be and scared myself. went to dr and had xray which showed nothing. decided it was an inflammation gave me steriod pack and muscle relaxer. muscle relaxer made me sick, spent next three weeks naseous and dizzy. then developed twitch in my tongue. went back to internet and sent myself into a panic. started feeling twitched all over my body. went back to dr and was referred to neurologist. saw neurologist, he asked a few questions, checked my eyes, ran a pin up and down arms, legs and back, had me walk across the room and then back to him in a straight line. pushed and pulled on me (i guess to test my strength). is that what is meant by a clinical exam? told me i had bsf and thought i had a pinched nerve in my neck. now i have pain in my fingers of my left hand and in the toes of my left foot. feels like a cramp but nothing is curling inward when it happens. could this be the beginning of als?:
