    Hi, Wish I had some words of wisdom on how to cope. When I figure it out, I'll let ya know!! We have 2 teenagers at home. The best thing for my husband is his dog, Sadiemae!! He says she is the only one who understands.
    Hey ruth
    Glad to hear from you,good to hear Lynn emailed you.I'll try and answer your questions.First with the fatigue ,no the Rilutek did not affect me at all no fatigue, and no other side effects,I was very lucky inthat respect .
    second question if you mean how has the disease affected me I'm fortunate my progression has been slow,is this the result of Rilutek I can;t say, but I have been one it from ther beginning.
    My symptoms started in my left foot and worked over to my right foot and leg after about 3 yrs. Then my wrists weeked ,now me sholders are week .But I just seem to progress in stages.
    I hope this answers your question.Feel free to call me or my wife Jeryl anytime 793-4929
    Your ALS friend
