- Learn about ALS
I am a 23 year old male. I first started to have twitching in my calves then after about two weeks, I have twitches in my arms, face, back, chest, thighs, butt… I know twitches are generally not just a symptom of ALS. But my right hand has been stiff making it hard for me to open up my right hand and my right arm has been weak. I went to a neurologist who ordered an MRI, EMG, and NCV. The mri came back with 4 disc bulges in my cervical spine with questionable mild radiculopathy on c6-c7 and 4 disc bulges in my lumbar spine with disc degeneration…. I had an EMG only on my arms which came back with 2+ fibs on my right forearm, right triceps and left triceps the other muscles were normal… and my NCV came back normal besides my median sensory nerve which had reduced amplitude. My question is could this be ALS? I am very worried… I am always looking up my symptoms, checking my weight, looking at my body….
