Hi Crystal -

The time it takes for diagnosis varies widely.

Why are you sure you have ALS?

My hands and forearms are atrophying, they are very stiff and weak.
My feet are atrophing, I am getting twiching and cramping.
I am hypperflexic, jaw jerk and everything.
I go back to the ALS specialist on Friday.
They practically ruled everything else out!
What were your first symtoms and how long did your diagnose take.

Crystal

Hi Crystal -

Your anxiety level must be through the roof right now. Hang in there and good luck on Friday.
