    Nikki, Thank you so so very much for sharing your thoughts you are so very very kind. I will try to be patient. So just to clarify what Dusty7 said about it starting in a single muscle - that means, like your situation , that even if i felt it in one muscle it would show up in other muscles...

    Passed NCV failed EMG - Bicep Weakness only - Worried I have ALS

    Nikki and Affected, Thanks you so much for responding - I guess I'm extra worried because in Dusty7's "read this first" report it says that ALS starts in one muscle - everyone else says starts elsewhere - I'm confused -- plus this whole thing with the EMG "gold standard" at picking up the ALS...

    Passed NCV failed EMG - Bicep Weakness only - Worried I have ALS

    Hi Nikki, Thanks for the quick reply - my heart goes out to you being diagnosed with this terrible disease. I guess I don't know how to ask the doctor to revisit the MRI report because it's obvious to me that he glossed over it in the first place - which puts us into an awkward position as...

    Hello , Sorry for the long post - I am terrified to even be writing in this forum. I noticed a "perceived weakness" in my Right bicep(dominant) in the start of April. There has been some wasting/ stretch marks under the skin when pulled a little that my wife could see as well so I headed...
