    Clear EMG.

    This is the tricky thing. It says on sticky that clear emg means no ALS and then there seem to be the exceptions.

    Clear EMG.

    Thanks a lot for your reply. He is keeping quiet but he mentioned lack of arm swing on the right. Minute he said. I dont have a tremor but I looked up these symptoms and could be parkinsons. I have trunk tightness/weakness. I am only 40 so young for it. I am seriously worried as I have known...

    Clear EMG.

    I am still under the neuro. He says now that I have not got GBS. My EMG in February was clear. I have right sided weakness now. He is scheduling further MRI s and a lumbar picture. Does clear EMG mean no ALS? I know you get asked this a lot but I am still unclear. Forgive me. Worried.

    Need some support - I have no one to talk to

    see what I mean UK girl. I was called a troll as well. And I agree why have a site like this if people who come on here for support when they are vulnerable and scared, just get abuse? Even if they have symptoms that are to ALS patients nothing like ALS, even if the symptoms seem trivial, even...

    Big hug my lovely. You obviously don't have ALS but I believe you when you say that you are ill and scared. Keep strong and keep hassling the doctors. You have to be persistent sometimes. You won't get any sympathy on this site as the people on here have extreme anger issues, not surprisingly. I...

    I have been diagnosed with guillian barre. It was not picked up in hospital as there was no neurology department and I could walk which is fairly unusual. I just thought that I would say what the diagnosis was, as it may help someone else in my position with similar symptoms. I will never forget...

    Yes. Have been really doing that this week. Had a good normal week. Symptoms came back with a vengance and the diaphragm thing means I cant breathe properly and then I worry and am so tired. I felt terrible today and then saw consultant who said defo not m.e and I really wanted it to be that...

    I don't think you guys know what we are up against in Britain with the NHS. I have been to a and e countless times. We have 3months between neurology appointments because the waiting lists are so long. Itbis not like USA where you have choice. find a doctor you trust? I saw a neurologist in...

    is this als?

    Sorry to post again. My breathing is badly affected at the moment and when I lie down it is like someone is sat on my chest my diaphram is so weak. However, my walking has really improved and the weakness in my arms seems to have lessened. Can symptoms improve? Sorry. Tell me the truth. I can...

    is this als?

    Hey. If this isn't ALS, I won't need help. I will be ecstatic! My consultant has scheduled an emg because all other tests have come back negative, I have actual weakness in my legs, a curling left hand and problems with shortness of breath at night. It wakes me and leaves me with a head ache in...
