Hi everyone, so this past few months I had twitching that would come and go but it has mostly stopped by now. I have cramping, pain a little bit in my hands, arms, sometimes my right calf muscle will twitch, sometimes legs are cramping. I had sometimes trouble swallowing but that is fixed now. Sometimes I drop things but I don't feel any weakness or when I grab something I can hold it like before without any problems but when I drop them I get scared. I read about Juvenile ALS and I got scared even more. The thing that is bothering me right now is when I yawn my muscles shake, mostly my right shoulder and bicep muscle. I just want to know if it is indicating ALS. Thank you and please respond when you can.

You don't mention what your doctor has said about these vague symptoms?
Have a really good read here - this is our official position and we don't argue outside of this so please sit down and read through twice as there is a lot to take in.

You should go see a doctor and address all your fears there so you can be sure of what is going on.
