  • Slowed conduction velocity across nerves is most commonly due to the loss of myelin on those nerves. Most of the time there isn't much you can do about it, unless the condition is due to, for example, low vitamin B12 (vitamin B12 does a lot of things, including the production of myelin). Therefore, if you have low vitamin B12 levels and that is causing your problem, then increase your vitamin B12 intake.
    Hi your symptoms sound quite similar mine, how did they find out it wad your gallbladder? Any info or help would be great you can either msg me on here or I cam give you my email. Thanks Em x
    hi there - i just wanted to chime in on the message you sent to trfogey...if you look at my recent thread, entitled "desperate not to be scared anymore", you'll see that he sent two VERY mean message to me as well. I don't know if being mean, insultating, and downright hurtful is his M.O., or if he's just mad at the world for the bad hand he's been dealt, but try not to let it bother you. I was bothered by it at first too, but really, there's no point. If people don't want those of us who are scared and worried to be posting questions, they shouldn't have a whole section called "do I have ALS?".

    I don't for a minute pretend to understand what these people have gone through, and never said I did, infact I said quite the opposite, but I don't think I or you, or anyone else he's blasted, should be addressed that way.
    Hi Hopeful- Having an EMG on your entire upper and lower limbs first was what my fiance's neurologist did first. Then they waited a month (seemed like forever) and performed another EMG on only one side of his body, thus comparing the nerve damage/loss to either side. Those procedures gave him the ALS diagnosis. Oh, have you been dropping things, having difficulty turning keys to car or doors? The breathing thing sounds like ALS, and unsteady gait, twitching of muscles (fasiculations, sp?), do too. Research these: PSP (Progressive Supranuclear Palsy) &MMN (Multifocal Motor Neuropathy) are non fatal but clinically similar to ALS.
