    Also, we went for an immediate EMG after moms second appt. We were sent directly to EMG, that's how obviously wrong things were with her.

    No. She slurred her words for a few months. The symptons you are describing are not what I see as ALS. I would think a pinched nerve. ALS does not tingle.

    Thanks Gil! I haven't had my EMG yet. It's in a month...and I'm not looking forward to the wait. Did she see her doctor immediately after onset of symptoms?

    Hi Gil,

    I did accidentally post in the wrong one...woops. But after two normal exams do you believe I'm clear? I've been experiencing these symptoms for a few months now. Cramps are intetmittent..balance is a little off..always have like a..buzzy feeling in my legs..especially my right leg. Like an analog tv with snow. Any advice is appreciated.
