    knee Instability scared its ALS

    Thanks again for taking the time to reply to me. I had follow up with my neuro today who was nice enough to do a lower EMG.. no waiting. EMG turned out to be normal so I think I'm safe to say I can get this out of my mind. I'll be going through my 6-8 weeks of PT and hopefully I won't have...

    Does this sound like ALS - Very Scared

    Thank you so much for taking the time to respond to me. What is it that I can't do right now? I can pretty much do everything, all be it with a little bit of struggling. I guess I'm all caught up with the perceived weakness and feeling that some how this is going to turn into clinical...

    Thank you so much for getting back to me Dusty. I guess I have it in my mind what I'm experiencing are the muscles dying in my left hand/arm. Based on your feedback it sounds as though I'm way off.
