ALS combines problems of upper and lower motor neurons. Each pathway has its own...
About 3-4 years ago I came to this forum and asked the dreaded question "Do I have ALS". I had some fasciculations and cramping in my feet, balance issues, spasticity in both legs and slight speech changes. I was assured by members that my symptoms were NOT symptoms of ALS and I went merrily...

I will try not to make this a long and hard to read...
Well, damn. My local neurologist, after two months of elimination tests, has now indicated likely NMD, with ALS being the most likely candidate.
He basically kicked the can down the road and referred me to Dr. Pulley at Jacksonville Shands. We see him in late April for a second EMG and opinion...
I'm sorry, I'd like to adress this as an update, but my previous thread was close. (For anyone new. 25 y.o. male oral surgeon from Mexico)
I've been having some issues with my 4 limbs (twitching most noticeably). I was operated on a herniated lumbar disc, that was crushing my left s1 nerve, as...
