Fasciculations do not mean you have ALS. Everyone has them frequently. See Benign Fasciculation Syndrome or BFS. Do you have any clinical muscle weakness? Have you seen your doctor about your concerns?

Netimus,

First I am very sorry for your country. The tragic deaths of so many young people in the night club fire is devastating.

Usually you need not worry about a few twitches, but I suggest you visit your doctor.
