The question I have is how long did it take for anyone's neurologist to present the diagnosis that it is definitely ALS? My fiance had 4 EMG's in 2014 after presenting with peripheral weakness in his arms along with muscle wasting and a loss of 30lbs. in the last 6 months. We have been to 2 neurosurgeons and 2 neurologists one of which is at UAB/Birmingham (the textbook writers for this disease) and still no answers. This situation has become very frustrating and disheartening. Please, if anyone has any comments they would gladly be welcomed. Thank you!
