Hi crysstalk and Zaphoon, thanks for your replies! Yup, I've been through the process, and the neuros were very helpful in only telling me about ALS after all else has been excluded. I'm an extremely optimistic person, so I too at this moment, feel that it may not be ALS. =) I've already waited for close to a year for a diagnosis, just found a very nice neuro in May 09, so am quite confident that I'll be able to get it sorted out. The only thing is that my neuro's overseas and the only way of contact is via email.
I have had MRIs, brain and spine, the latter done with contrast. I've also had tonnes of bloodtests done, and one lumbar puncture. All turned out fine. The only thing was my EMGs, I have had 5 EMGs, 2 showed damage, 1 wasnt very optimistic, as my neuro put it. The ones with problems were done in May (1 EMG) and June (2EMGs), while the first two done Dec 08 and early Feb 09 were all clear.
I'm hoping for the best, just can't wait to run and swim again! Or perhaps can I add, walk like I used to. I usually walk till my limbs are stiff then I stop and rest. Then continue the next day. My symptoms first started last August (left side), got worse in March (right side), and bad in May. I said bad as I was on trial for Myasthenia Gravis and the medicine just made me so much worse. Now I'm back to my condition in March, though my strength's somewhat weaker than in March.
