- Learn about ALS
Hi everyone, My original thread seems to be not allowing for any more posts. I have not posted anything in months but we just went to the ALS clinic. My dad had a EMG in feb 2020 and a repeat EMG this week. There was no changes in the EMG. The neuro said its either MMN or a ALS variant? They will be treating him with an injectionx 6 over 3months for the MMN in order to rule it out. If no improvement in muscle strength is gained we know its the variant. His weakness is in left arm and a bit in the right. Most of the atrophy is in the shoulder area. He has experienced symptoms for almost 2yrs. Does anyone know if slow progressing als stays generally slow or does it ever speed up? Thx for any imput in advance.
