thank you very much for taking the time to read this and I wish all of you the very best.

I don't know if it is related but in...
I’m concerned about my symptoms I’ve been facing them for just under 6 months.
Let me start out by saying that my life is very stressful. I manage about 500 people all over the world. The ups and downs of corporate politics are very impactful and my stress level in the last 6 months has been...
This post is for those who are currently experiencing numbness and muscle twitching and, like me, tend to automatically assume the worst case scenario.
I felt compelled to write this a year and a half after first experiencing neurological issues because #1, it seems that a lot of folks who...
First off, I want to thank you all so much for the invaluable wisdom so many of you have shared here. You have helped so many (including me) through this disorienting process, and I really can’t thank you enough.

Good morning all, It’s a little advise I’m seeking as all the doc’s I’ve seen and test done have drawn a blank, but the fact remains, my condition is getting worst? I'm not sure what I have but I'm thinking its got to be a nero issue as everything else it coming back as clear, but I'm still...
I had been on here in 2014 with some complaints about twitching and muscle weakness, over the past 3 years it has stayed with me and gotten worse to some extent. I have been to many doctors and Neuro's and had 3 EMG, last was early last year on my limbs but doctors didn't pick up...
