Hello, I posted a couple of weeks ago & have some updates I would really like to get opinions on.

Here’s a timeline of all of my symptoms -

About 2 months ago, started one morning with a burning sensation in left leg.
Within a week I felt the burning through my whole leg and left side of my body.
Went to the ER thinking it could be a blood clot or something like that in left leg, all come back good.
Feeling persisted and I started developing new symptoms.
Both hands felt like they were cramping, pain in fingers and a weird feeling when holding things.
My neck feels tight and hurts when I turn my head to the left.
My jaw feels tight and hurts when I clench my teeth on the right side.
My tongue feels weird and I almost feel like Im slurring words when I speak, although everyone I ask tells me I’m talking normally.
The balls of my feet both feel like they’re like dead skin and feel weird when I walk. (Have feeling but almost like a patch of dead skin is there)
I feel cracking throughout my body in different joints. (Feet, ankles, wrist, etc).
My left ankle hurts when I walk.


Does this sound like I could have something like ALS and it could be progressing? All these symptoms have been relatively consistent & have me going insane. Thank you so much.

Hi
you were asked not to post again

you are describing feeling/ sensory symptoms but not failure. Failure is the hallmark of ALS See your doctor for your concerns
