- Learn about ALS
An MRI showed that I have severe muscle wasting between my second and third fingers (palmar and dorsal interossei in that location and thinning of adductor pollicis near third finger). I have no sensory symptoms. I cannot cross my middle and index fingers and have difficulty moving the index toward the middle and vice versa. No other weakness or signs that anything else is wrong. EMG of hand and forearm was normal in March, but they didn't test that particular area. Just wondering if anyone else has ALS that started as localized wasting between fingers and then spread. I have had this problem for about a year, unchanged. Diagnoses being considered are ALS and multifocal motor neuropathy. Do not get more tests until next month.
