Hi, i am new to this forum and must say it is very informative and there seems to be a lot of compassion and understanding from everyone. I have been having a lot of what seems to be neurological symptoms going on lately. I have weakness in my legs, arms, feet, and hands. My tongue is always sore or painful(kinda hard to describe really), but it is constant except when i am sleeping. As far as swallowing goes, i almost always get that feeling of something stuck in my throat whenever i eat and sometimes when i burp some food will come up. The last thing i am experiencing is shortness of breath with minimal exertion and a pain or cramping feeling in my abdomen about where my diaphragm is. I am, like a lot of people, scared it is ALS. I think deep down I know but i am in denial.
