Hello, My name is Chris I am a twenty year old college student. I have been having a lot of concerning physical symptoms for the past few months now that are really scaring me because they are the same symptoms of the beginning stages of als. The symptoms started about 2 or 3 months ago when I noticed a slight twitch in my index finger. It was not a constant twitch but it would happen multiple times a day. A few weeks later the twitch that started in one finger progressed to all my fingers on my left hand. Then I noticed that when I hold my fingers in a certain position they will tremor and shake. For instance if I point at something with my left finger I can’t keep it still. And when I hold my cell phone in my left hand I have a hard time controlling my thumb so I can text because it shakes and tremors. I also have trouble with shakiness in my arms, especially my left arm. For example when I push myself out of bed every morning I can feel my arms shaking the second I put pressure on them. I have also felt a similar shaky felling in my legs when I stand in certain positions, for example if I lean forward over the sink when I am brushing my teeth I can feel my legs shaking like they are having trouble supporting my weight. I also have an uncontrollable bounce in my legs when I am sitting down. For example if I am sitting in class and I raise the heels of my feet up while my toes are still touching the ground my legs will bounce uncontrollably until I put my feet back flat on the ground again. I’m afraid that all of those things combined can be the beginning stages of weakness all over my body. I also have twitching all over my body, I mean everywhere from the tip of my tongue to the arches in my feet. They are not painful twitches but they are twitches that I can see under my skin, I think they are called fasciculations. They have been going on for a few months all over my body as well, and just the past couple of days my feet are feeling as if they are going to cramp up. I apologize in advance if I am not being clear or not explaining myself enough I was just hoping that someone could maybe tell me what they believe is going on and if they believe these are early symptoms of als. But thank you for taking time to read my post.
