    Does ALS hurt?

    Thanks for responding. I'm hoping to get some answers at the end of the month (although this is a new doctor so maybe it will just be a meet and greet). The pain was the first thing to start, both in my arm and in my legs but they peoceeded symptoms by maybe a year then stopped in their...

    Is Iplex any good?

    Thank you for the information! I saw some threads after I posted. I have to confess I'm technology stunted. I wasn't sure how to google concerns on the forum. I should be living on an Amish farm somewhere....then I wouldn't feel so computer illiterate

    Does ALS hurt?

    Hi, I've posted before but while I'm awaiting my next neuro visit I was wondering if anyone knows if it's possible to have muscle soreness for lengths of time.

    Is Iplex any good?

    Thanks for that encouragement! She is a neurologist in a small town so I thought her referring me to Madison was a big move, but I found out the neurologist she is referring me to is another general neurologist. Again, my confidence in this doctor is waning. Why do you think the lateral...

    How long for diagnosis?

    How long for diagnosis?

    Thanks, I was going to ask the Madison office for a copy. I just don't know that I want to deal anymore with the doctor or her office. At the last visit the doctor told me if the spinal was clean she was going to refer me. Fine, I accept that, but when the receptionist calls to tell me it's...

    How long for diagnosis?

    Hi, I've been seeing a neurologist for initially a weak left hand/arm then it progressed to weak foot and leg and now it's been close to two years. At first when I initially showed her my tremor (pressing a finger against a wall) she told me after a clean emg that I had tremors. Next scheduled...
