    Feel like I'm getting closer to an answer...

    After all my worry of ALS, I've decided to put it on the back-burner and look at things like EBV/Lyme/CMV. I've been feeling a bit better over these past weeks (dry gross taste gone, smelling is back), still have some joint pain, burning, and twitching. Still do get very hot sometimes but my...

I've tried to put my worry aside, but it all comes back to what my...

    Possible ALS?

    It's been a progression of symptoms unfortunately. At first it was the noticeable Bell's Palsy, then strong arm and leg tingling and now my legs don't feel right when I touch them.

    Possible ALS?

    What makes you think it isn't ALS? I've also had trouble swallowing, too. I've lost a lot of weight. I don't know if it is due to stress or what. The tingling has subsided (except sometimes through the buttocks) and now my legs feel like jelly and weak.
