Default very concerned I have ALS

I am a 44 year old female with two year old twin daughters. A little background on me, I have had muscle twitches all over my body since I was 19. They have come and gone without any problems. I just notice them and I am otherwise healthy. Lately they have gotten worse and more consistent and seem to twitch everywhere but my right arm. I have been sleeping on a mattress that is pretty old and I am going to see a neurologist today about a possible pinched nerve. I am scared to death. Everything I have read points me in the direction of ALS and it has consumed me. I cannot concentrate on anything else. I have read that anxiety can cause these muscle twitches as well. I am not trying to sound insensitive to those who are suffering from this disease. In fact, the awareness I have now has made me more sensitive to those suffering and they are in my prayers. I just need some reassurance I guess. I am freaking out really bad. Please help!
