So, here I am exactly one week out from my husband's death. It was really only after he actually passed that I have started to realize the absolute hellfire we went through together.
There was beauty, love, and moments of joy for sure. I am very sure I never felt closer to or loved another...
Hi, I have read the thread with the symptoms and I wouldn’t have posted here, if it weren’t for my knees that are kinda bothering me – some vibrations, not exactly twitching which probably wouldn’t scare me because I would say the cold is to blame ( I sleep in just a shirt and it is kinda cold...
My mother was diagnosed last year. The majority of her body has succumbed to ALS. She can still speak, move her left arm, and her neck.
Over the past few weeks, her mental state has changed. She has always been someone who speaks her mind, and in some cases - should not - but rarely to...
Sometimes I feel in a rush to get things done while I can still do them. It's almost like I have two personalities. One just wants to sit around, eat, surf the Internet, and watch TV. The other one wants to publish again, go on a weekend retreat, and buy that ticket to visit cousins up North...
In another thread I explained that I didn’t think I’d be able to be enough support for my boyfriend who lives with his mom and sister.
He and I have been together for 5 years but have been becoming a bit distant since my daughter died 7 months ago. I’ve been needing time to myself . But then...

Hi, I'm Brook.
I didn't know where else to post this. I'm not really asking if I have ALS. I am introducing myself and venting my fears to a group of compassionate people. I read all the stickies and apologize in advance if I'm too verbose.
First off, I have been lurking on this site for...

She had a first symptom of weakness on her left ankle and few times of loosing balance on April 2016. Before the symptom, she fell down from the chair while she was wiping...

Hi everyone. I'm a 44 year old female. On Mother's Day weekend I almost choked on a roll at Bob Evans. I sat there not sure whether to cough it up or swallow it down. That next Wednesday the same happened with a donut. About a week later, one night my entire body felt numb & legs felt heavy and...
I have some health problems for 5 months now and it is destroying me.
And I have some questions for you to clarify what docs could not. It started with twitching in legs mostly in thighs and calfs but it became widespread. Next I started felling a weakness after some sport activities. Like...
