- Learn about ALS
Can ALS be diagnosed with bloodwork, MRI and an one EMG/NCV only? My diagnosis of ALS blindsided me since I wasn't even thinking about that particular disease. I am also wondering if the neurologists should have asked me about my family history. What role does hereditary entities play in the differential diagnosis of ALS? Does everyone that has a diagnosis of ALS had hereditary entities ruled out? Now that I know more about this disease I am wondering about my father and grandfather, who both have rheumatoid arthritis in their hands and feet but wihout pain.
