    Update: No ALS for Me

    greetings everyone... it looks like I will not be findng a home on this forum. I'm incredibly, incredibly grateful for a clean (four limb) EMG today, conducted by a neuromuscular specialist. She saw "no signs" of motor neuron disease....thank god. While this certainly doesn't answer what I have...

    The Fear is Wrecking My Life....

    I'm taking xanax, I'm taking an anti-depressant, I'm seeing a shrink... I'm trying so hard to manage my anxiety and yet the symptoms persist and are getting worse and fear has just consumed me. I don't really have a question... I hope you don't mind me just venting out loud. I have never felt...

    Question about Nerve Conduction Study

    If you have a clean NCS, does that rule out a pinched nerve anywhere in your body (NCS was done on all four limbs)? Also, I've had two c-spine MRI's, but they have never done a full spine MRI. Could a disc problem lead to the weakness and pain I'm feeling in my arms? I think not....but I...

    Every day worse than before....

I hate to repeat my whole story because typing has become...

    Update from Hong Kong....

I don't have the energy to get into all of the reasons he is wrong, but for now I'm going to get off this board and just pray my latest symptoms do not get...

    "mild ulnar neuropathy"

    I guess that first EMG wasn't as clean as I first thought. I finally got the transcript from the states and everything looked good until the summary at the bottom which said "mildly abnormal" and listed ulnar neuropathy. At the time the doc dismissed it as carpel tunnel. Crap! Am I in the...

    Leaving for Hong Kong Tomorrow

    I can honestly say I've never been so terrified in all my life. I'm clinging to the fact that I had a clean EMG of my arms last year, even though these symptoms in my back and neck are very, very troubling. Thank you all for your sage advice and wisdom. I truly appreciate everyone that has...

    When to get another EMG?

    Greetings everyone. I'm new to posting, although I've been lurking for a few weeks. I've tried really hard to search the forum for my exact question, and although there are some close topics, I'm not sure if they hit right on my situation, so I would greatly appreciate any information you can...
