Hi, I'm seeking early onset information. I am awaiting tests for ALS and my anxiety level is over the top. I suffered from trigeminal neuralgia in early August. I'm on gabapentin and still waiting on my MRI to find the cause of it. Since then I began with twitching in my calves and back of thighs. It's almost constant unless I'm walking. I have not experienced any muscle weakness to my knowledge. The fact my neurologist decided to rule out ALS threw me for a loop as I was not even going in that direction. Now I think there's no way it isn't this. My anxiety level is over the top. Does it seem like a big jump to test for this or are my symptoms something that people here started out with? Is twitching enough without muscle weakness? Was weakness a part of early unset symptoms for most?
