Default Rather unnerving symptoms

hi everyone.
i have had twitching everywhere in my body for a long time.
recently it started getting worse, and i worry it has something to do with this disease.
also, lately, i have lost a lot of strength in my right hand/arm.
i find that it is getting harder to grip things and sometimes i even drop things like cups.
i feel like my muscles are very fatigued in my hands and forearm.
im 17 at the moment and will be 18 in a few months.
very scared, please help.

See your primary phycsician and if she/he thinks it's something to worry about they'll refer you to a neurologist for testing. I pray it's nothing to worry about.

Please make an appointment to see your primary physician as soon as possible. Don't get yourself worked up unnecessarily. Enjoy your young life and don't waste your time on here worrying. Good luck!

You could have something as minor as a vitamin deficiency .You should see your PCP and get some tests .ALS is very rare in you age group .
