I am new to your site.
One of my closest friend's was diagnosed a few days ago with ALS. She's been experiencing ascending paralysis, weakness in her legs for several weeks now, and has been tested for so many different things.
I have no experience with ALS, but faced cancer myself, and found that public forums often offered me help I couldn't get from my doctors.
I've been researching online for her, since her computer access is limited.
I would really like her to see a specialist in ALS, at least for a second opinion, and advice. SO, what I'm hoping for is advice on the best ALS doctors and how to find them.
She's currently living in Oregon, but will likely be moving to North Idaho soon, so I'm searching for someone in Oregon, Washington, Idaho or Western Montana.
I'd appreciate any recommendations you all could give, or ideas on how I can find out which doctors in our area might be specialists.
