Default Re: Concerned that I have symptoms of ALS.

Feeling and failing really are two different things. I dare say that if you haven't experienced failing then you really can't understand it. My husband doesn't feel weak, he is weak in that what his brain tells his hands to what do, they just don't do. ALS only affects the motor neurons not the sensory neurons, so no 'feelings'.

If your doc examined you and consulted with a neurologist you are good to go. They didn't order any other tests because they are expensive, invasive and unnecessary. Go and enjoy your long life.

All the Best,

Tracy
