    Worrisome symptoms - should I be concerned?

    Hi, first of all - thanks in advance for spending some of your precious your time reading my long story. I'm 25 and last 3 months of my life was the worst (so far) , fear-ridden time I have ever experienced. Everything started on the 1st of October with a constant, mild headache with painful...

    Multiple Medical Issues

    I wasn't sure if I would post this at all. After deciding I had no idea where to post it but, for me, it feels like a rant/complaint so here it is. Since my diagnosis I've always believed that I should take good care of my general health, get some good sun each day possible, get some light...

    This one’s for the worriers

    Hi all, I’ve been lurking here on and off for a little over a year and have even caved and posted a few threads. I just had my third clean EMG in 12 months.

    Scared out of my mind, please help me.

    Brief history: I'm a 27 year old guy currently living in Denmark. about 2 months ago I felt fasciculations in my upper left chest during rest, which happened several times the following days, however only when at rest. I cannot recall when the 'shaking' started in my left leg and when it...

    Worried

    Hello everyone, I decided to post here after days of anxiety and depression. I am a 24 year old female. My symptoms started 2 and 1/2 weeks ago when both of my hands cramped. They kept cramping no matter what I did. I then felt sudden weakness. I went to the emergency where they told me to go...

    I think I'm finally giving up

    7 1/2 years its been now. from a slight tingle in her left foot to total paralysis took roughly 2 years. very slow decline since then, really where do you decline to? her breathing is compromised, but O2 levels stay up with nightly use of the bi-pap. If it was just us, I'd probably suck it...
