    Confused - please help!

    Thanks Ottawa Girl and Grateful. I have been putting off going back to Toronto for this because a trip home from here is just so expensive. This forum has been so helpful to me I can't even tell you. Not only information wise but just to say "out loud" how I am feeling. My folks are too old now...

    Hey everyone, hope you have all been doing well. I've really been trying to stay busy and calm down about all of this and I feel like I'm in a more rational place right now. Maybe I do not have ALS. But I have something. It is sooo hard to ignore what is going on with my body. I know you guys...

    Pictures by isabella26261 - Photobucket I posted this before but it didn't work so sorry if it posts twice. I put up 3 pictures of the dents above my knees that appeared over the last 2 weeks. Does it look like atrophy?

    Thanks for the responses guys.. It makes me feel better to hear those things until I look in the mirror and see the dents again. It is absolutely something new and does not look normal by any means. It looks like a chunk of my lower thighs is missing. Is there anyone willing to look at a pic and...

    Confused - please help!

    So it's been almost a month since my symptoms came back and I've had days in between with no twitching or feelings of weakness. Yet still in the last 2 weeks I developed symmetrical dents in both legs right above my knees. Can someone help me with how to post a pic? I've lost around 8 pounds in...

    Hey guys, hope everyone is having a good day today! I had my EMG and nerve conduction study today. The neurologist attached electrodes to my right hand and right leg/foot and shocked me a bunch of times. Then made me do things like press my fingers together and flex my toes while he looked at...

    Confused - please help!

    Hey guys.... I think I've gone off the deep end. I cannot stop worrying about this! I feel like I'm noticing atrophy all of a sudden! Can it become noticeable in just a week? How does it appear when it first starts? Is the entire muscle smaller or does it dent? I cannot believe I went from...

    Hi Everyone! I went back to my GP - he seems to think I'm over reacting but did agree to send me for an EMG. My question is - is there a different kind of EMG? He said that it would be something on the surface of my muscles and not involve any needles. If I'm going for one I'd like to get the...

    Hi Ottawa girl! Thanks for replying! I so wish I was in Canada right now but have been living in the Caribbean and the health care is truly scary! Doctors are too lazy to take you seriously! Considering going back to Toronto just to see a Doctor I am going so crazy! I do feel better that I...

    Thank you Toto, for taking the time to reply :) Can you tell me which symptoms are sensory? I am really trying to understand all of this but there is so much conflicting information on the internet. Interesting that you ask - calcium was high at 11.3, my b12 was low at 190, vit d was low at 23...

    Hey Everyone, I'm 26 years old and always been healthy until February this year when I started getting twitches in my fingers and toes (mostly at night when relaxed). I will admit I was going through A LOT of stress and I figured that was the cause. Then came the hand tremors... shaky hands...
