    Why We're Here...

    Hi all, Just wanted to underline how grateful I am for this forum. This morning, Mum had her first really rattling experience with trouble breathing, a series of spasms that wouldn't allow her to get her breath. Because of how PALS and CALS share their experiences here, and I've been reading...

    2 emg's, still not convinced

    Keeping it short, I have three questions. 1. I’ve had two emg’s done by two different neurologists. I didn’t think the first one was done correctly and I’m worried the second one wasn’t either. The second neurologist did the emg at my request because of my ALS worries and also to test the...

    Anxiety? ALS? Long read, sorry!

    First, let me preface this by saying I am 100% a hypochondriac. I constantly think something is wrong with me and even if someone says something jokingly to me (which is how this whole ALS suspicion started) I freak out about it.

    Could this be ALS?

    I started having muscle spasms and what I believed muscle twitches in both my legs about 6 weeks ago along with tingling in feet and numbness. Soon after I felt the twitches in other parts of my body. I also have tingliness in my hands. I can still do my daily activities so no muscle weakness. I...

    Grief/ Crying/ Can't Breathe

    Sadly, my sister passed away last week, and the family is gutted. She was a bright light, and we miss her terribly. My 87 year old Mum is grieving hard. Yesterday she was crying with full abandon, and suddenly felt she couldn't breathe. I've read here before that PALS can have spasms, and...

    Multiple Medical Issues

    I wasn't sure if I would post this at all. After deciding I had no idea where to post it but, for me, it feels like a rant/complaint so here it is. Since my diagnosis I've always believed that I should take good care of my general health, get some good sun each day possible, get some light...
