Default Right Pinky Weakness

Been going through ALS fear for almost one year. I have been body wide twitching for 11 months. Seen Neuro last April cleared me of anything sinister with a brief clinical exam. Reflexes, strength tests, etc... Mentioned twitching he was not interested.

I have done so many self tests its unbelievable. About 5 or 6 months ago I looked up finger spread test and noticed my right pinky during this test was weak. Definitely weaker than left pinky. I am right handed. Thumbs and index fingers are strong.

I am nervous because I have read and been informed that there has been people diagnosed with this weakness. I don't know exactly how long the right pinky has been like that it could have been more then the 6 months and I just never noticed it.

Not sure if it really matters but my hands can do everything they always have. They twitch a little here and there like the rest of me. I also can run up to 18 miles easily but I guess if it was in my hands that wouldn't matter.
