    Change in symptoms

    Hi guys. I posted here last year since at the end of March of last year I started having widespread fasciculations. They were strongest/most constant in my calves but were also occurring in other parts of my body. I went to a neurologist, who detected the fascics but couldn't figure out what...

    Odd new symptom

    Hello everyone. I've posted here before, as I've been having weird symptoms since the middle of May of last year. Saw several doctors and finally had an EMG performed last December that detected fasciculations in my legs, but no explanation for the fasciculations I had in other parts of the...

    Regarding bulbar onset ALS

    I've spoken about my symptoms before, beginning in mid-May I first noticed fasciculations in my calves, and afterwards in other parts of my body, including my face. Since about a month ago, I've been getting fasciculations in my tongue. At first, it was just one or two every few days, but then...

    Tongue fasciculations

    Hello everyone. Just using this thread as a way to vent, so I understand if nobody replies. Ever since Thursday night, I've had really bad fasciculations on my tongue. I had gotten occasional twitching there, but nothing as bad as this. Of course, when you start getting these strong twitches...

    Normal EMG but abnormal NCS...has this happened to anyone else here?

    My EMG results came back, and the doctor's impression (she's not a neurologist), was sensory-motor peripheral neuropathy. Even though I have tons of fasciculations, the EMG did not catch any of them. Her comments state "Study showed normal motor velocities, decreased amplitudes, and normal...

    Questions about muscle cramps in ALS

    I have been having terrible muscle cramps/spasms in my shoulders for the past few months, but since my fasciculations have been occurring in my calves, I haven't really related them to my other symptoms. Am I correct in assuming that the cramps occur in the area where one is having...

    Doctors have found neuropathy in my legs...is this an ALS symptom?

    Hello all, I began posting a few months ago after getting constant fasciculations in my legs. I was living in Asia at the time, and recently moved back to the US. I had started to relax about my symptoms since they had subsided somewhat (I still have fasciculations in my calves, bottom of...

    An update

    Hello, everyone. As some of you may know, I started posting here because I began having fasciculations at the end of May. As my aunt had passed away from the disease, I was worried that this might be an early symptom of the disease, especially combined with a clumsy feeling in my right hand and...

    What do muscle cramps feel like?

    I've had charley horses on my calves before, like everyone else probably. Friday morning I woke up with this terrible, terrible pain in my right foot, hurt more when I moved it but I WAS able to move it. It's Sunday now and the pain has dulled slightly but it's still there and gets worse when I...

    Quick questions regarding EMGs

    Are EMGs usually very short? The one I had was barely five minutes. If an EMG is performed while fasciculations are not occurring, could it miss MND symptoms, or at these symptoms ongoing even while fasciculations are not occurring? I'm just trying to clear these doubts from my mind so I can...
