Hi lhagsjr, These symptoms often make people anxious but try not to worry too much (hard to do, I know) until you've been to a neurologists and had a battery of tests. Some folks eventually ask to be seen by an ALS clinic because there are many diseases that mimic ALS and the speciality clinic are better at identifying some of the more obscure (but treatable) conditions. Good luck at your appointments and let us know how it is going. Cindy

Hi lhagsjr. You have to remember that there are no doctors here. What you're getting is a semi educated guess by people that have an illness that you may or may not end up with. No one can really tell (not even a doctor) what you might have by 2 signs or symptoms. You need a lot of tests by a professional.
