Please accept my apologies if I have done something wrong . I am just highly upset and overwhelmed and stressed. I just want to include the EMG report I received which has me so upset I don't know what to do. This report does not look promising.. please if someone understands this ..

Your doctor told you no signs of ALS. He is of course right. I don’t know why you are panicking here. Chronic denervation like that is not indicative of ALS nor a precursor. And the rest is the nerve conduction which is unrelated to ALS. If you can’t accept this go back to your doctor and tell him you don’t believe him and have him explain this to you

and it is clear from this that in spite of your claim that the emg portion showed the no response ( which made no sense) it was the ncs after all. Stop trying to second guess your neurologist who spent at least 11 years training likely more

Nikki , I just came from the orthopedic surgeon the dr who gave me all the mris to take for my back . Hes the one who referred me to my neurologist. He looked over the Emg report I posted earlier. He said that the atrophy and the findings on the emg report are not supported by his opion. He said there's nothing in my back , no pitched nerve or mild stenosis that would cause my problems. He said that from a orthopedic surgeon point of view.
Not feeling to well right now.Starting to get tremors in my body also. Legs and shoulders feeling weak .. idkn my next move.

You got another opinion from an ALS specialist that said no ALS. Your emg is not ALS. You need to stop focusing on ALS 2 specialists and an emg say no

i am closing this thread. Do not start another. You can not be reassured clearly but that is not our job
