    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...
