No, more than likely it is a side effect of medication. I read through some of your past posts and you were told it is bfs and anxiety. That too can cause your problem. Go back to the dr.

Never, ever heard or read anything like the OP (original poster) wrote related to ALS.
Maybe side effects of some medication his is taking but not as a result of the disease itself.

Viagra or Cialis. Dont think ALS causes this... either way- the pills generally work. Not sure of your age, but that may have something to do with it as well as the older a man gets, the more his testosterone levels drop. You could have your levels checked to see if this is an issue. Best of luck.

Huh? It ain't no bone or cartilage so it almost has to be muscle. I have even heard it referred to as a love muscle!
Funny thing is, I lost a "section" of muscle there too. Muscles throughout the body just have gaps where muscles just disappeared.

Forgot to mention...erectile function maintained in spite of the gap!
