Answers with respect:
1. Not at all what you are experiencing, you are INCORRECT
2. No, the EMG was not done too early and won't change because you twitch more.

Go back to our sticky.
Print your last post and take it to discuss with your doctor.

We can't do a single thing more for you which is the best news you could receive.
You have been clearly cleared of ALS by doctors, so please stop chasing it here with us.

I hope you find the answers soon, but it's not here.

Fascics on an EMG are not the same as twitching -- two completely different things -- so that the EMG was normal in terms of fascics (and other things that would be of concern) says you are good to go as regards ALS. Don't be freaked out by the "return if" language, which is just legal CYA stuff.

I didn't notice electrolytes in your labs, but those can often be fine-tuned with diet and hydration, to reduce the twitching quite a bit, along with slow stretching like tai chi stuff. Basically, if you screen all your liquids for electrolyte support and make sure you are drinking enough, it is always worthwhile.

Live the healthy life that others here cannot.
