First, let me thank all of you in advance for the support and advice you have offered me in the past. Considering the 24/7 fasciculations I am experiencing as described by Al and other PALS as characteristic of ALS, and the weakness, atrophy, bulbar symptoms etc, I don’t see any other disorder, except MND, as most descriptive of the symptoms I have. My intent is to prepare myself for the possibility of being diagnosed with ALS. If it’s not too personal, I would like to know how each of you managed to come to terms with having ALS. Are there tips you can offer that can help those who will be diagnosed with the illness? If this question has been asked before, please direct me to the proper thread. I would be more than happy if you prefer to PM me instead.
