We had people joining and posting advertising after 1 post. We had to up the number of posts before you are allowed certain functions to stop this. We tried telling everyone how many it was and then we had people just posting crap to get their count up. Sorry for the inconvenience but the site is much more secure now and usually only people affected by ALS stay around now. Hang in there. Everything will be available eventually.
Thank you. I will. I've been hoping for a long time it was something other than ALS, but I've accepted it now. He has actually had symptoms since 2003 while he was in Iraq. The atrophy in his right arm was very noticeable by May of 2005. We dealt with the VA doctors for awhile trying to get a diagnosis and I finally took him to a local neuro this August since we were not getting anywhere with the VA. With all the tests they have run they have pretty much ruled out everything else, including MMN. Our neuro is very good and he actually trained at the ALS clinic in Dallas so that is why he referred him there for confirmation and also so we can talk to physical and occupational therapists and whoever else.
