Default Re: Worried about ALS

At this point, I think you'll agree there is no ALS going on, and no reason to suspect you might develop ALS at all.
You described classic RLS. I started that in college. Even a small drink will trigger it. It happens to me whenever I relax, such as bedtime.
To control my RLS, I simply didn't relax for 30 years. Thank God somebody invented Pramipexole, but I still never really relax myself. I miss that feeling of "ahhhh" just before sleeping.

Twitching: Some people do it, some don't.
Atrophy: Can't really diagnose over the Internet. Follow up on that, but remember that our bodies are pretty dynamic. Could very well be nothing of worry. Good luck.
