Fasciculations do not mean you have ALS. Everyone has them frequently. See Benign Fasciculation Syndrome or BFS. Do you have any clinical muscle weakness? Have you seen your doctor about your concerns?

Netimus,

First I am very sorry for your country. The tragic deaths of so many young people in the night club fire is devastating.

Usually you need not worry about a few twitches, but I suggest you visit your doctor.

well so far nothing of weakness, but this fasciculation are stronger near the thumb, which makes opolegar up and down, this bothering me, as I said in the beginning, when one starts fasciculation type near the calf, so moving the leg or even pass to hand it to, I have this kind of fasciculation throughout the body
