Just letting you know i will be going to see the als specialist sometime this weak after being refferd there due to an abnormal emg by my neurologist. the als specialist i will be seeing is doctor christian shoesmith at the london health science centre. I will be having a second emg after seeing her and possibly a group of academic people. As for my family doctor, last time i seen him i wanted him to do some other test and he basicily said they were pointless at this time because he is prety sure i have some type of polyneuorpathy but he is not qualified to make the diagnosis. both neuros also think metabolic disorders should be rulled out because iam so young(26), so i will prob have to have a muscle biobsy aswell at some point.

as far as my symptoms go, they seem to have gotten quite a bit worse the last few weaks, fell down the stairs awhile ago( prob didnt help), but also seem to be getting loss of sensation in arms when careing things causing me to drop stuff, and lose of sensations in legs while walking causing knees to buckle, also breathing is getting worse and muscles in mouth tire a lot quicker while eating.

also wondering if anyone knows anything about juvenile onset pompe disease?


thats it for now, i will let you know how it goes when iam back from the als clinic and what their final diagnosis is.

I wouldn't worry too much about it. Remember, ALS isn't about feeling weak, but about being weak. But then again, I'm not a doctor, so you'll have to wait. Best of luck to you!
