First of all, thanks for all the information in the stickies, and I hope it is ok to still post my question.
I have had sporadic pains in my left calf and thigh for several months now, and I am waiting about 10 more days to see a doctor at the hospital (not a specialist, but referred to by my GP). I have also had thigh twitching for about 8 months - a year, and twitching in my calf which began more recently. I had not even been concerned by it until these other symptoms began. I have also had a pretty much constant very dull aching sensation in my left foot and left buttock for several months. I have also noticed that I am tripping over things more frequently.
About a week ago, I noticed an obvious dent in my thigh muscle, about an inch in diameter. I also have frequent pains in this thigh muscle. The dent is definitely new, and it can be felt better when I tense the muscle.
Does this sound like it could be atrophy of my thigh muscle, and a possible symptom of ALS?
I really hope it is ok for me to post this question, and I truly appreciate any responses. Thanks for reading.
