    Post electric shock

    I had an electric shock in September. We are unsure how severe it was but I did not black out. Immediately after I had weakness in my arm and leg (my hand was the point of contact, opposite foot was exit point) and a tingling feeling up my forearm.

    A Month or 2 with PLS

    Hello. First off I have been here a couple of times and have offended. I am sorry. I am not blaming the stress but for many of us in the prior to diagnosed stage it freaking sucks. So I apologize for my inappropriate behavior. My upper motor neuron symptoms progressed to the point when my...
