    Come for tea

    Regretfully , I may be saying 'told ya so'

    Energy, to be honest I have not read your earlier posts, just this one. You do realize that atrophy is more commonly caused by nerve impingement( already mentioned above).

    Helen was truly an inspiration. I met her twice and spent a week with her, laughing and having fun. She was the sister I never had. Her strength took my breath away. Never a bad word or a complaint ever crossed her lips. She bore this terrible disease like a warrior. God has truly gained an...

    I need help please family is posted this together ..plz help me

    You still have not said what abnormality if any, was found on clinical examination. Losing that much wait seems commoner here on people stressing about ALS, than those who have it. Stress can cause massive weight loss. Atrophy just does not occur that quickly, which makes me wonder whether your...
