    Flu Shot

    Hello everyone! This is my first post since my husband was diagnosed with ALS in January 2018. I have read many threads and your posts have been so helpful. I have a question about flu shots. My husband is only 59 but realized yesterday that there are "stronger" flu shots for people over 65...

    Update

    Inquiry about Respiratory Onset ALS

    I have read the “Read Before Posting” section and must admit that I do not have clinical weakness. However, my symptoms are not typical of limb onset ALS, but rather respiratory onset (or perhaps thoracic?). Quick information about me, I am a 30-year-old male. I completely understand the...
