    Well, damn. My local neurologist, after two months of elimination tests, has now indicated likely NMD, with ALS being the most likely candidate. He basically kicked the can down the road and referred me to Dr. Pulley at Jacksonville Shands. We see him in late April for a second EMG and opinion...

    Concerned about leg weakness and other symptoms.

    I'm hesitant to post here because of the seriousness of the disease in which I'm extremely anxious over, but I need guidance: I've been battling a bulging disc in my lower back since 2007 that gets irritated a few times a year. Flash back to middle of February and I aggravated it again, but...

    Young male bulbar symptoms

    I posted two years ago but was unable to post on that thread but it had been closed. During the time between then and now for the most part I was able to move on from my fears of ALS. However that has changed recently as I have developed a mild slur, not noticed by normal folks but was...

    Just about ready to give up;

    Hey everyone. I've never posted on a forum before such as this one, although I've long been someone that often browses to see what others are going through and that people have to say. But I'm genuinely at my wits end and don't know how to cope any longer, so perhaps just discussing my issue a...
