My brother, age 67, has been experiencing progessive tingling and muscle weakness in the index and little fingers of his left hand. When he lays his hand palm down he cannot lift those two fingers. He has been seeing doctors, had an MRI, more are ordered but no one has given him any specific diagnosis yet. He peeked at the papers he was given to take with him to the next MRI and saw "possible MND - atypical". Looking that up online he found MND & ALS mentioned together. Needless to say he is very worried.
I have been doing a lot of searching online and I've yet to find "tingling" as an early symptom of ALS. My brother has Type 2 Diabetes (takes medication but doesn't need insulin yet) and I'm inclined to think that the symptoms are related to that. Does anyone have any information or experience that might shed some light on these symptoms and their possible link to MND or ALS?
Thanks for your time.
