Tingling is sensory...not ALS
Feel right when touching legs...this is sensory, so not ALS
smell issues...sensory, not ALS
Bad taste in mouth...not ALS

In other words...not one of your symptoms is even remotely ALS sounding at all. They all are sensory. ALS does not effect sensory nerves.

Feeling weak and being weak are different...but your posts make it obvious you are not going to believe any of the advise you've asked for. Still, here goes. Wait for the doc to diagnose you. These simply are not ALS symptoms. Period.
