- Learn about ALS
So I am 19 years old and know that at this age ALS is pretty rare. My symptoms started 20 months ago with twitching in the foot which quickly spread to my legs. I googled and ALS entered my life. I had extreme anxiety for a month or two with twitching. Used to do strength tests every day which made my muscles sore. I saw a neurologist who performed a physical exam and said everything was fine. Now 20 months later the twitching has been going on through out my body now but something happened 2 weeks ago which has brought back the anxiety. I am having a strange stiff kind of feeling between knee and shin seems to be the soleus muscle. This happens while running walking and climbing stairs. It is a strange sensation and I have started the strength tests again. I feel it only while doing something. Please help.
