    Really scared with twitches and cramps

    I'm really scared that I have ALS. So much so it is consuming my life and my family. About two months ago just before going in for gallbladder surgery, I noticed twitching in both of my calves.

    Triggers for ALS?

    I am awaiting a diagnosis. I see an ALS specialist in September, and I will have my EMG repeated then. Neuro told me that in 6-12 months I would know either way.

    Another worried one...

    For me it all started last February after a gallbladder surgery. I went home to heal up and started getting out and about a few days later. Then some weird stuff started happening. I would wake up at night with burning sensations in my shoulders and back. It would wake me up like clockwork...
