    Hi. Don't worry. The moderators and people in the forum were a little harsh to me to for worrying too much but I don't think you were insensitive. I read a lot of these posts from people and I think you have the same personality as I. We have a need to know for sure but that doesn't make the...

    Complex Case is ALS?

    Hi Lenore - Thanks for the reply and hope you are enjoying the beautiful fall weather. Nice to meet another Minnesotan (although I'm originally from across the state line to the east so still bleed green and gold). Yeah, the way this whole thing started out is why I bounced around. Plus I...

    Complex Case is ALS?

    Hi all again, I had another quick EMG that redid some of the legs and then added in only the tongue. Nothing was abnormal at this point. Are there other parts of the face and throat they can do for bulbar EMG? I have the upcoming appointment with Mayo and I want to make sure I have all my...

    Complex Case is ALS?

    I should also say that my left tibial fwave latency increased from the first EMG to the second EMG. Which I've read is potentially an early indicator. No other fwaves increased, only the one for the nerve where the twitching is now full strength. Any thoughts?

    Complex Case is ALS?

    Thanks lixen. Sorry I should clarify, I didn't have twitching until a week before the second EMG. The first EMG was done as a rule out precaution back in June when thought MS or some other PN autoimmune related.

    Complex Case is ALS?

    Thanks Wendy. Has anyone here been caught my the hyperexcitability phase of twitching before EMG showed abnormal? Meaning two months of twitching or so before anything shows on EMG? So this still confuses me. Some say twitching before EMG some say after muscle weakness and abnormal EMG. Is...
