This is your third thread in as many weeks. I am truly sorry you are so anxious and needlessly fearful.

Please trust your doctor. He told you plainly NO ALS. We are not doctors. If you desire a second opinion, please arrange to have one with another doctor, though I doubt very much even that will set your mind at ease. You are the only one who can address and calm your anxiety. We cannot do this for you. Go to your GP and discuss options to deal with your worries.

hmm
I think your fear and anxiety are making you sick. I know when I am under a lot of stress my symp toms are worse. I try everyday to sit down and have a cup of herbal tea and do something relaxing like reading or needle work. Maybe you could try some meditation or deep breathing or yoga. You need to listen to your dr and relax. I wish you peace.

I'd trust your Dr. who pretty much said you don't.... weakness is a sign of ALS, not twitching.
