- Learn about ALS
If an EMG detects fasciculations in calves but was otherwise "normal", is this a clean EMG? The reason I ask is because my twitching has gotten much worse since my EMG (which was 2 weeks ago) and the neuro at the time said that my twitches look to be benign but when I asked if ALS could be ruled out, he said "no, not until we see the 6-month follow up EMG and compare for any changes". As many people on this "Do I have ALS" forum, I am scared. I have seen many people say clean EMG= no als, but I'm not sure mine was clean since it picked up true fasciculations in my calves. Since the test, I've had the tiny twitches appear all over my hand and popcorn type twitches EVERYWHERE else. When I lay down, I get like 20-30 per minute in my back, legs, arms, abdomen, ... everywhere.
