I've never heard that one either Whitey. Feet going to sleep or numb is kind of a symptom of getting old I think. Circulation is not as good as it once was but I don't ever remember reading about it as a side effect of ALS. But then I haven't read all of what is out there either. Maybe someone else has heard of it or experienced it. Input anyone?
That is a symptom of MS most of the time. I have read only a couple of stories were a person with ALS had numbness and they said it was from limbs falling asleep in the night. but then my symptoms are very strange too.
thanks for your reply. Can anyone tell me about their characteristics of their muscle twitching, this seems to be my major symptom. When it started, how did it feel, is it constant or just isolated twitches. I am trying to post this as a question for everyone, I am still trying to learn how to do this.
Righty oh, spud, to post your question on a new page is very simple (when u know how lol)
Select which forum you would like your question to be displayed on IE: General discussions about ALS/MND and then click " New thread" it's a green button to the left of the page, type your message as you did here, hey presto! you will have created a new thread.
Hope that helps some.
PS also private messaged you just encase u dont see this reply.
Can anyone tell me their characteristics of muscle twitching. Are they constant, do they come and go, how intense. When did you start getting them in the beginning of symptoms, etc. That seems to be my major symptom. If anyone can give me iniformatin about the twitching, I would greatly appreciate any information.
Mine are all day all night and in most muscle groups. I can't feel them but sometimes I can feel the thigh muscles move but not the smaller ones. I can see them and my thigh muscles can be seen under my clothes. Looks like a sack of worms moving around.
When i first started having symptoms,, i had the tingling feeling alittle,, but then it would turn into a very cold feeling. I told the doctor that it felt like someone was holding an ice cue against my face. After a few months the feelings stopped. I dont' know if that helps you any but that was my experience.
Good luck ,, and have a great day.
Love and Prayers
Funny you should ask, my fascics are pretty bad today especially in the right leg. Generally though I have constant fascics throughout my body (shoulders down, plus tongue). They are not painful and would not bother me at all if I didn't know I had ALS. As it is they just constantly remind me that my neurons are degenerating.
