Or does it start in one area, like als?

My husband says ALL his muscles feel stiff, weak & fatigued. His arms & thighs. He says when he uses them, walking, or repetetive arm motions, it feels worse. I ask him to be specific but he says its not in one spot, just all his muscles feel the same? Ohh, some days are better than others.

Mine started with loss of balance, then legs. Not sure which one first. My arms have started getting tired and sore faster and sooner than they used to. Symptom of PLS?

Thank you Peter & Valrunk , I appreciate your kindness!

Strange as it is, Ever since 6 mo's after starting Crestor (statin) hes had problems but hes been off them for 8 mo's now & the Dr's say, Its Impossible for it to be the Crestor. All the bloodwork, emg is good.

Mine started in just the bulbar area. It wasn't until 4 years later it started affecting my limbs. :cry:
