    Whirlwind of symptoms

    Thanks everyone for reading my post. I understand that the onset of initial symptoms is nothing at all like ALS, I just figured I'd provide a full background of everything that's been going on. My concern regarding ALS was more with the swallowing/breathing type things that have surfaced in...

    Whirlwind of symptoms

    Hi all. I'm 27 years old and I've had a rough 1.5 months. I know a lot of this sounds nothing like ALS but please bear with me. Around late January, I began having daily headaches for about 2 weeks (I'm not one to ever get headaches). I began to have a lot of brain fog and head pressure at...

    Constant jaw pain, left-sided stiffness

    What would make me think you could "override" my doctor? Nothing. Was simply asking if anyone with the disease had symptoms similar to mine. Not to mention that hearing "those symptoms don't sound anything like ALS and your doctor says it's not" is still more reassuring than "those symptoms...

    Constant jaw pain, left-sided stiffness

    Thanks for your input. I'm sure that it gets tiring to be a person with this disease reading every Joe Schmo's complaints and concerns, but I do appreciate the response.

    Constant jaw pain, left-sided stiffness

She responded quite confidently, "It's not ALS...

    Constant jaw pain, left-sided stiffness

    Hello everyone - I have posted here before (quite some time ago), but I'm still having some doubts/concerns. I know ALS is exceedingly rare at my age (let alone any age), but I'm starting to have a hard time believing that my symptoms could be anything other than early ALS or MS. Symptoms...

    Left side weakness, buzzing feeling

    Good morning all, Sorry to bother you again with my symptoms, but I'm growing concerned again about the possibility of MND. I posted previously concerning what I thought were bulbar symptoms, and the consensus was that the symptoms did not sound like ALS, and my neurologist did not notice...

    Bulbar onset?

    Just an update. I saw my neurologist this morning. She tells me I am fine. She said she saw "normal" twitching of my tongue, but no fasiculations. She did an overall physical exam, including watching and feeling my throat as i swallowed. She said the muscles looked and felt OK, and that it...

    Bulbar onset?

    So I'm a 22 year old male who has been having some neurological symptoms lately. It started with postural tremor in the hands and limbs (no resting tremor) along with some clonus-like jerking. I have since noticed some difficulty swallowing, my gait is a little strange, my voice gets hoarse...
