I know that doctors say if you have fasciculations, about 6 - 8 months no additional symptoms excludes als.
But then, I am reading people who state they had dirty emg's and it took years (!) to perceive weakness in that region. It doesn't make sense. I thought denervation/fibrillation...
On Jan/25/2017 the Neurologist did another EMG to compare to the one done on 7/20/2016, here is the report, so let me know what you all think. This test is just for left side of body, right side never done.
Summary: Nerve conduction studies of the left arm and leg demonstrate mildly slow...
I post my update.
Thanks to everybody for the support!
As you know I was give a MND diagnosis last month.
So I make an apoinment for second opinion in my country. It was yesterday, they make a lot of test, today I received the results.

Hello people. My name is Eric, I'm 21 years old, I'm from Russia. Please sorry for my English.
I admire with what courage, cheerfulness and openness you discuss this desease.
I would like to share the problem. I hope there will be people who will be able to clarify the situation worrisome me.
This is my first time writing about ALS in any support forum ever. My mother died of ALS this past March. I was able to get through my mother's battle with ALS with the support of friends and family. But now that I am exhibiting suspicious neurological problems, just half a year after...
My history is on here through other posts. Started twitching in late Nov 2015. Had multiple EMGs which were normal (showing fascs), although last one in August 2016 had one focal fibrillation. Brisk symmetrical reflexes. No sign of weakness. No swallowing/breathing/speech issues. I...
Note: I do not remember having any injuries and I have a clean MRI (head and spine). The only thing I have diagnosed on me is GAD-Generalized Anxiety Disorder.
Symptoms began 5 months ago with widespread twitching.
Then in July I had some trouble swallowing that seemed to wax and wane. I...
I have read both the stickies and they were immensely supportive.
My symptoms match those which both stickies suggest are not indicative of ALS. I would say what first brought me to ALS fear was a twitch in my shoulder just over a year a go now. I entered the dreaded Dr Google and...
Fascs started in late Nov 2015. Had 4 EMGs by start of month 5, all were normal (apart from fascs).
Fascs continued, and at month 8 I went for the first time to the Sydney Brain and Mind Centre, probably Australias leading research centre in the field. There I had an ultrasound (normal nerves...
Since my last post I've seen two neurologist. The first one did extensive clinical examination and said "100% not ALS"
I felt so much better, he said to redo the EMG
So I did, nerve conduction studies are normal, EMG is unfortunately not
We've spend few hours with my EMG neuro...
