    Pain

    Actually, I'm a medical mystery right now. I have muscle weakness/atrophy/twitches but few, if any, upper neuron symptoms (my reflexes at my kness are slightly brisk). My EMGs have all been OK so neuro says not ALS. According to the article in my link if you have ALS your EMG is going to show...

    Soreness

    I have alot of muscle pain, twitching, exercise intollerance, etc. but neuros say no ALS. Someone posted a good link/article about this under my subject thread ALS vs Neck Injury. If you can find it I bet it will ease your mind about the twitching. It did me. I would post it but it came from...

    ALS EMG vs Neck Injury EMG?

    I have never been checked for MS or Lyme. I hope the experts at Emory do so. My orthopedic doctor (for my scoliosis and degenerative back problems) says it could be MS because it tends to be worse on one side, I have sensory issues, and vertigo. But she also said it could be one of MANY types...

    Vicki its hard to explain. Go to google and search for 23andme. It seems very interesting. Not sure how accurate it is but for someone with no family history like me its worth s shot. I imagine doctors hate things like these but like you said - we know our own bodies best and have to get the...

    ALS EMG vs Neck Injury EMG?

    The key is to never give up and advocate for yourself. Vickie you and I seem to share a lot of symptom - weakness, scoliosis, heart rhythm issues - I have hope mine it mito as well (not that I wish it on you)! Ive decided to order the 23andme medical /ancestry kit and take the test. It may...

    ALS EMG vs Neck Injury EMG?

    I definitely am going to ask for a muscle biopsy. And get tested for Lyme. I had 2 muscles in my cervical spine area that showed chronic denervation/renervation. The rest of my muscles were fine. Because these 2 were off I had the cervical MRI. The lady doctor who did the EMG said no ALS and so...

    ALS EMG vs Neck Injury EMG?

    I have left sided weakness -have had it for years. Head to toe. But there is nothing I cant do if I had to absolutely do it. Ive been lightly stretching and exercising my legs at night. They ache and hurt regardless so I'm hoping to tone them a bit. I belong to a gym but I'm thinking weights...

    ALS EMG vs Neck Injury EMG?

    Ho hum. I'm still concerned about the No - ALS DX. My legs continue to deteriorate at an alarming rate - I'm afraid that at this rate I won't be walking when I go to Emory in Feb. My calves are very very thin and flabby - my thighs are getting flabby too. I realize I'm probably adding fuel to...
