- Learn about ALS
My apologies for a long winded note. My husband has been dealing with "something" but both the neurologist and family GP dont know. EMG was ok, but only 2 limbs were tested. At night my husband has twitches in his arms and shoulders. He has restless leg syndrome, so I cant' really tell if his legs twitch. Everyday, he is more stiff, especially in the morning. After he gets moving though, he is better. When he stops for very long the stiffness is back. He sweats more at night, and, has more nightmares. He has a humming in his arms and legs. There has been twice now, that his arm shakes uncontrollably, but eventually stops. He is very fatigued by the end of the day. His shoulders pain him, and he has limited ROM in his arms. His arms have cogwheeling rigidity, and his arms are super sensitive to having someone bend his arm up and down. He has experienced some episodes of shortness of breath. Stated "I just cant seem to get enough air in" He is only 40. Do any of these symptoms sound familiar? Any information would be helpful. thank you.
