- Learn about ALS
Hello so I recently started twitching About one and a half month ago in the abdominal area which then quickly began wide spread twitching. Since then I’ve had symptoms of post nasal drip, jerks in toes and fingers, tremors in thighs, as well as the persistent twitching. I had a clean clinical one week ago and I had a clean emg on Monday where they tested both legs, arms, neck, sternocleidomastoid process, and back. He said that he had no findings of als present and that all that was the was chronic nerve pinching from the last but nothing active. Since then I’ve started to have joint problems in my fingers where they click or pop when I do simple tasks like holding my phone or putting my fingers at rest. Along with this I’ve been having pain in side and top of my hands which sometimes radiates Into my fingers, forearm, and tricep. Also been having finger stiffness. I usually only notice all these finger symptoms when on my phone but not when at work etc and it gets better with rest. I’m worried because I’m the emg they didn’t get my hands so I wanted to know if they did multiple muscles in my arm but didn’t do the emg in my hand would it have picked up abnormalities in my hand? And also is this how hand stiffness presents in als?
