    Continued Worry! Sorry for posting another thread, my last one was closed

    I’m sorry, I don’t mean to be a bother. I just have one more question regarding symptoms. I’ve been having what my neurologist said might be Myoclonic jerks for the past few days. It definitely is a new symptom recently, even though I’m confident I’ve had it before. I have them in my legs...

    Ok, thank you so much! I had read online somewhere that ones you can see but not feel are a bad sign. Figured this forum would be a better source of information than anywhere else!

    Also, is it fair to say that if it was something more sinister than BFS, which my neuro said I had, that I would have other issues by now? My twitching started at the end of April.

    Just a follow up question: does it matter if I can see fasciculations but not feel them? I’ve noticed that’s in my legs just by chance tonight. As a side note, I have been exercising cardio wise much more every day now. All of my other symptoms are stagnant or better now. My swallowing has been...

    Hi all, I just wanted to give an update on my situation after my neurologist visit today. Her final diagnosis was physical symptoms as the result of stress and anxiety. I’ll be following up with my regular doctor following that diagnosis. Thank you all for your answers earlier this summer! As...

    I’m sorry Al, I didn’t mean to overstep or annoy you. If I did, which I can tell I did, I’m sorry. I just wanted to update my status with the doctors, more so for others who might have similar symptoms to me. I had a follow up on Thursday, where the doctor noted my twitching has continued, but...

    Hello, sorry to bother you all again! I just had some questions I wanted to ask, as I’m following up with my PCP this week, and my MRI has been set for June 12. I just wanted to know if an MRI would be able to conclusively rule anything MND related out? If my neurological exam remains normal...

    Thank you! I have some doctors visits for my issues coming up, so I’ll let you know they all end up saying! I have one more question, but it’s completely off topic. Karen, is that a golden doodle in your profile picture? I have a golden myself, and he looks just like that, except with white fur!

    Blunt doesn’t have to be a bad thing! I’m generally blunt too in person. I guess I’ve been hanging around here because it’s seemingly one thing after the other these last few months. Now that my swallowing is getting better and the twitchy g is going down, I feel like I’m talking differently...

    I’ll let the others talk about ALS symptoms, but I recently saw a MND neurologist, so I can talk about what a visit is like. My neurologist first listened to what I had to say. She asked me what my symptoms were like, when they started, and about my past medical history. After that, she did...
