    New to Forums, Diagnosed in April

    Hello all, I was diagnosed with ALS in April of this year, about a year after I starting showing signs of slurred speech. So, I'm not newly diagnosed, and have had time to process my situation, but I'm new to the ALS forums, having only registered recently. I realized I would benefit from...

    Can't stop thinking about it.....

    I have read, and read, and read, and read, the alsforums and other things on the Internet. I know ALS is a failing not a feeling and I admit almost all of these symptoms are feelings. But I also feel like I have read stories where yall can trace your ALS to minor events preceding diagnosis. I...

    Vehicle for the Wheelchair and Me

    My wheelchair should be arriving in January. Now I need to figure out what to do about a vehicle to transport the wheelchair and me. I am very curious to hear what others are doing. For now, I am able to walk the length of the car and can still drive. So, loading the wheelchair into the back...

    Abnormal Arm Fatigue

    Greetings, I was wondering if my symptoms of abnormal arm fatigue and fasciculations, both of which are symptoms that ALSA mention as early symptoms of ALS, are consistent with those of a patient with ALS. I'm a 26 year old male about to get my masters in statistics on Saturday, :)! I'll try...

    ALS is a B word!

    I'm usually very positive, but finding it harder and harder lately! ALS has stolen so much from me already and I'm still just at the beginning! I lost one of my jobs because insurance won't cove me driving patients if I have ALS. My other job is threatening to let me go because I'm moving...
