- Learn about ALS
Hi. I have a couple of questions. Has anyone else had their PCP order a CPK test? My doctor said it would show muscle deterioration. Is anyone else familiar with this as a possible ALS test? I read the READ BEFORE POSTING, which were an amazing resource of information, but I am wondering if instead of twitches people get more jerking? I feel like my involuntary movements are big jerks, that being said I also have twitching. Also at what point do people head to a neurologist? I could not adore my doctor more but when I saw her yesterday she did say she isn't an expert on diagnosing ALS. One last question, approx how long after twitches/jerks/fascilations start does weakness normally start? Thank you for your time.
