    Rushed ALS Diagnosis ??

    First off, my heart goes out to all of you. You are so incredibly brave and generous with sharing your time, experience and support. My husband walked into a neurologist's office with symmetrical muscle weakness and walked out with a diagnosis of ALS. Some background - My husband is 51 and...

    Strange symptoms

    I want to preface my first post here to say that my concern has led me to investigate about ALS in a way that makes me feel a deep sympathy for everyone affected by ALS (whether in his/her own flesh, or through a family member.) I also want to help those who make this forum possible. I will...

    Dad died

    Doubt anyone reads this things. Just wanted to mention my Dad passed. Came to this forum a few times for a help and it was much appreciated. His ALS moved so quickly we were unable to get him any of the benefits he deserved for being a veteran. I tried my best for my Dad. My heart goes out to...

    Scared with family history

    After my fourth sleepless night I’ve decided to finally reach out. I am a 32 year old, seemingly healthy, mother to a two year old. At present I am VERY stressed. I will make no secret about that. Probably more stressed than I have ever been in my life. I work per diem, am a full time nursing...

Anyways this is my story, since 18 march i've noticed a little light headed feeling, just for a minute or so. I didn't make much out of it, but...

    Family member positively reflecting on life and loss

    I hope this post is appropriate for this section, but I wanted to briefly share a personal reflection of my experience during my father's battle with ALS and what I hold dearest to my heart after losing him. The topic of ALS can be a sad discussion, it is sad. But, as odd as it sounds, after I...
