Matt has been gone four months, and it feels like a lifetime. On the other hand, I think I'm just now mourning what we went through. All the losses that I was unable to mourn because we were too busy trying to live--I think they are battling their way out of the box I locked them in at the time...
Keeping it short, I have three questions.
1. I’ve had two emg’s done by two different neurologists. I didn’t think the first one was done correctly and I’m worried the second one wasn’t either. The second neurologist did the emg at my request because of my ALS worries and also to test the...

He was an extremely heavy drinker...

I'm a 43 year old male that started twitching in 1999. I saw a couple of Neuros back then and had an EMG that was clean. Diagnosis was simply benign fasiculations.
Fast forward to late 2013, my voice started to have this weird vibration/rattle at the end of a sentence that occurred...
