    Hello Laurie,

    I am sorry for your loss.
    I had a question regarding the experiences during the night. I found it very difficult. I was wondering if you think having a new communication device at night will help the situation?

    Hey Laurie,

    I was wondering if you could help me with something? I am a 25 year old male with body wide fasciculations (literally randomly everywhere), no weakness, no atrophy. My neuro found hyperrefelxia in my left knee. Could that mean ALS? Especially without weakness? He wants to do an MRI to rule out MS. He said he didn't think ALS, but I find the twitches and asymmetric hyperreflexia very worrisome.
    Thank you very much for your time.

    Hi Laurie,

    I'm fairly new to these boards there seems to be that there are an awful lot of youngsters posting today, is this typical?
    Really enjoy reading your posts,

    Be well and God bless,

    Hi lgelb, I couldn't find a way to message you directly so I apologize for this visitor post. I am not changing my profile status as I registered "for" my husband so the account is both of us so when you see posts, it's most likely him asking or commenting. I am so sorry for your loss. This diagnosis has certainly been a devastating blow to our family. Thoughts and prayers are with you.
