    Latest symptom. Please bear with me.

    Thanks for the rational and perceptive response. I am definitely in what they call idiopathic territory. Everyone knows something neurological is going on but very good and I mean very good people don’t know what. It’s a trial and tough but I know and I’ve seen that it’s nowhere near as tough...

    Oh no you are the last people I would want to upset. I am in diagnostic limbo and I sincerely apologise if I’ve upset anyone. I have sat in als clinics for 3 years now and I have seen the devastation it causes first hand. I will of course adhere to your wishes and not post but do please...

    My latest Emg and apologies in advance.

    Hi Nikki Kind and as usual entirely sensible feedback. I know 'feeling ' isn't als but my legs feel weaker and tendons are stretched to breaking.Fasics have been constant. It also seems to be more prominent on the left side. The reasons for no als(so far) seem to be mainly clinical and also...

    Hi. Yet another EMG. Could I ask some questions please?

    Good point Nikki. I will schedule another visit to ask questions. I think their reticence to commit is the progression issue.What freaks me is the' we cannot completely rule out mnd'. I am however at the best centre

    Hi. Yet another EMG. Could I ask some questions please?

    Thanks Al. To be fair I don't ask for the appointments . They want to see me to see if there's progression.. I agree with your could be worse could be better assessment but this bloody limbo land isn't easy although I appreciate its a hell of a lot better than a definitive als diagnosis. Thanks...
