Hello everyone. I’m a 30 year old female and would love to get some feedback from people with more knowledge of these things than myself. So this all began at the beginning December. I noticed my hands would go limp for a second and then be fine. I googled and googled and figured maybe it was...
Gait Abnormality.. Is this Foot Drop?
I will keep this as short as possible out of respect for those reading.
I have had fasciculations in right hand starting in December, went away for a while, then came back in January and moved to left hand, arch of right foot. Twitching spread everywhere...

I was dealing with some pretty bad health anxiety this past week, of course after watching the VICE news piece on ALS and an HBO movie called “Jenifer.”
I’m very sure I don’t have it now because I’ve only been experiencing a feeling of weakness, primarily in the hands, that sometimes is felt in...
Dear PALS, I've had an earlier thread regarding my mother, who's diagnosis is still uncertain. Both Laurie and Karen were very helpful. A short intro:

Hi, I have supposed "probable ALS". But I have some weird symptoms that the doc dismisses so quickly, and I wonder if anyone else has experienced anything like them.
When I shower and shampoo, about a minute after towel drying, I get horrendous itching of the scalp and palms of my hands. It...
