    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. To be honest, I haven't seen my doctor about these issues yet as...

    Don’t know where to turn, very worrying set of symptoms

    Hi everyone and thanks for taking the time to read my post. I am currently crippled by the fear that my worsening symptoms suggest ALS. For a time I put them down to anxiety but I can no longer accept that explanation as everything just seems too coincidental. It all started in August- I...

    Please read this - serious now and I think I know what's caused it

    Hi. Please bear with me here. I am 39, male. Weight trained very seriously since 16 and in the summer weighed about 250lb. I have always been in perfect health until this year. Back in August I started getting muscle twitches randomly across my body and pretty bad fatigue, along with tight...

    Abnormal EMG/Twitching- Any hope?

    Hi all, sorry for the long post but need to get it out... I have been lurking for a few weeks now. I have had twitching- mainly in the calves/thighs/butt- for 2-3 weeks now. Had been mainly in my quad next to my knee but rarely it twitches there now. Legs are pretty much non stop at rest...

    My PALS is now in heaven

    My love is gone. I feel numb and lost even though I thought I was prepared for this. He hung on so so long, I don’t know how, but he did. This journey has forever changed me and my family. The little ones seem to be coping okay so far (way more clingy though), and I am trying to find a new...
