Hi Laurie:
ALS is generally diagnosed by eliminating everything else and this is done through lots of testing. We've had lots of people come to this site with similar symptoms and never heard from again... presumably misdiagnosed.
The sooner you get your husband to a neurologist the better. As Carol said... hope for the best and prepare for the worst. If it is ALS... and it might be...get an immediate referral to the closest ALS clinic... before you leave the office!
Good Luck
T.
