    Could I possibly have ALS? Recent slurred speeches

    Hi! I'm a 20 years old male living in Canada. I'm a Korean, so I apologize in advance if my English is bad. Starting several years ago, I've had occasional difficulty breathing along with some chest pain, that gradually built up to cause anxiety issues (hypochondriac). So I decided to go get...

    First Post - Not Yet Diagnosed

    Mod note: this member's journey has caused much concern among those worried about ALS. It is extremely important to note that his initial clinical exam was very abnormal ( far more so than brisk reflexes alone which can be normal). It was clear from the start that he had upper motor neuron...

    Scared and need your help

    Thank you all for taking this time to read my post. My symptoms started a little over a month ago. I was getting off the train and getting into my car to drive home.

    Another one worried about ALS. Incite?

    Like so many others, I have found myself on this forum out of fear over the few symptoms I'm having and their potential relation to ALS. I haven't gone to the doctor yet.

    My pals has left me.
