I'm a newbie, so please excuse any faux pas or breaches of ettiquite. I noticed something wrong with my muscles & reflexes about 18 months ago. Internest dismissed my concerns. Cramps and twitches got very much worse and had constant pain and weakness in forearms. Kept complaining. Saw neurologist for EMG tests last Aug. Said I was tired. Went back for 2nd round in Dec. Neuro said not enough to worry about, but you don't have ALS. Weaned myself off Baclofen for Christmas. Told everyone it wasn't serious. Assigned to physical therapy. PT said "you've got a LOT going on and none of it's good". After 6 wks was weaker than at start. Neck MRI. Some sinal cord compression but not enough to explain symptoms. Back to neuro. "somthing's going on." You want me to do another EMG? No - I want someone who can tell me what's going on.
