Thank you for your message- I understand your frustration with respect to getting to the bottom of what's going on with you. I must however, answer your query honestly. My diagnosis was super speedy. Saw my GP on March 19/12- had battery of tests- blood, catscan, MRI's, ultrasound etc- saw 2 neurologists and was told on April/12. Please keep in mind, I had waited a very long time before seeing GP (I blamed arthritis for hand cramps and menopause for extreme fatigue); I was told that I likely had ALS over a year to a year and a half. Keep your spirits up- until you know for sure- it can surely be something else! There are so many possibilities- the body is complex! Don't hesitate to ask if you need more information. You are NOT alone.
