Hi, this is my first post here. I am concerned about my girlfriend's symptoms. She is 21 and to my knowledge has a normal medical history. Her first symptoms appeared about 2 years ago, her legs got wobbly and she fell a few times. She says it feels like her legs just give out on her. I told her to go to a doctor then, but she refused. Now, 2 years later, the falls have become more frequent. She finally agreed to see a doctor, she went on Monday. The GP noticed her wobbly walk, and at first said she may have an unhealed knee or hip injury. Then he tested her grip and noticed her right hand was significantly weaker then her left, she is right handed. At this point he said this and her walking problems were likely neurological. He also noted a complete lack of reflexes in the legs and arms. After doing some research I am really scared this could be MS or ALS, although from what I have read ALS causes exagerrated reflexes, or am I wrong? I haven't told her about anything that I have read, I don't want her to worry anymore than she already is. We have an appointment with a neurologist on Oct 10.
