- Learn about ALS
Hi everyone, I really need your help. Two weeks before taking a big exam around the begining of October 2016, And under a lot of stress from work, I started twitching on my left index finger on and off. I also started getting twitches all over my body a little after that, and left side of face felt numb sometimes. I made an appointment with the Neuro and she sent me to get an MIR. On the second visit she informed me that the MIR came back clean, I told her that the finger twitching had stopped, but I still had body twitches mainly at night or when at rest. She did quich strength test, by pushing my feet out and then pressing her hands and other basic test and said everything look good, but if I wanted I could get an EMG and NCS to ruled out ALS mostly for my piece of mind since I looked really stressed out, which I agreed. I am schedule for Jan 9th 2017. I am now waiting, but have noticed that twitching has increased while at rest, also since last week my feet, hands and forearms fell like they are about to cramp but don't. While at sleep yesterday I noticed that I had a couple of muscle spasm where my leg of arm would move a little. Ever since the Dr told me about those test I have been suffering thru extreme anxiety, and about to go crazy going on the internet every chance I get. I want to also clarify that I don't have any muscle weakness. I don't know if my symptoms are being caused by stress??? I have a 10 month old and Wife that need me, I am really scared. I have been looking for "are faculations in ALS widespread or focal" or like does twitching happen after weakness, things like that.....I am a ball of nerves!!!! Really need help!!!
