- Lost a loved one
Hello. I saw my neurologist for a second time yesterday looking for reassurance. My mom died at 45 of ALS, so I always have it in the back of my mind. Long story short. He did not find anything in the clinical exam. He ran blood work and suggested an EMG for peace of mind. The office has a patient portal that you can log in to and check results. My creatine kinase total serum level was a 341. It says normal range is 24-173 (I am a female and 32 years old). I do have anxiety about ALS and getting this test result has, of course, thrown me into a tail spin. Can someone please give me some insight on this sort of thing? I appreciate your time.
