Default Question about the nature of ALS twitching

I unfortunately have had a lot of twitching in my left arm. This is really scary and I go online and of course first result MND. These twitches however, stop as soon as I straight or move my arm.

My question is: Do als twitches stop when you stretch your arm? Or do they keep going regardless of the position?

Default Re: Question about the nature of ALS twitching

Can't really say from person to person. Twitching is so common to so many conditions, that it is not diagnostic of anything. Healthy people twitch.
If you cannot stretch your arm, THEN we would be concerned.
