- Learn about ALS
Within the past two weeks, I noticed that pencils are getting weird to hold as well as my hand just being generally clumsy. It is even a chore to just grab a chicken wing. My hands get stiff and cramp at least 4 times a day. My gait and balance are also well off, I’m not the same as I used to be. While looking at my hand I noticed my thenar muscle is atrophied and stings/burns. My body and limbs are also very heavy and I pretty much stay in bed all day. The cramps are just unbelievable, it hurts to my bone. I’m lost at what to do, I want to see a neurologist but it will take a month. The wait will kill me. I’m absolutely dead inside.
