hello. My name is Brianna and I'm 26 years old. I have read the stickies and out of all the symptoms I've been experiencing the main one that concerns me is atrophy. I'll try to give a brief timeline of my symptoms and any feed back is greatly appreciated. I promise not to drag anything on if me...
Today my father had a breathing exam and, as it has been the case since he is testes, the results were perfect. In the past two years and a half since first measured, there has been no observable decline as measured by any indication of respiratory function.
Given these results...
Hello, I hope you are well or as well as possible.
Thank you for checking this thread and thank you for making this section of the forum. It must be very difficult for some members. Your patience for those of us with questions is greatly appreciated.
I've refrained from ALS symptom-checking on...
Hello everyone, in a 38 year old male. I worked out 3 - 4 times a week until the onset of fasiculations, which started 2 1/2 months ago. Since then, my time has been spent between doctor visits and a constant anxiety and worry. I try to workout, but it's down to maybe once a week because of the...

I have been waiting for our official diagnosis from and ALS specialist/neurologist to post and we got it last Thursday so here I am.
My mom was her normal awesome self in April this year. In May we noticed she was slurring her words and she had a couple of falls while cleaning the house.
Still not sure how to get around to different forums or see what I posted. Was diagnosed in Feb 2018. Had to quit work in Jan. Not sure what's worse the mental part of this illness or the physical part. I know everyone's timeline and symptoms are different. I have weak left hand, right leg...
I had hoped that I would be able to report back with some kind of diagnosis, but unfortunately I still do not have one. Timeline since my last post:
-went to a podiatrist. Has a foot MRI which showed all sorts of things such as tendinopathy, mucoid degeneration, joint effusions, tenosynovitis...
I had an EMG test done in 2016 when I developed foot drop and was tripping and occasionally falling. The neurologist didn’t have any concern at that time. He said I had some arthritis. I saw a neurosurgeon and decided to do surgery for foot drop on my L5 section, discectomy she called it...
