I [posted in a thread below about my concerns about ALS. I had my MRI and the brain one was perfectly normal. The neck MRI showed a bulging disc around my 5-6 vertabrae. My doctor is now sending me for an EMG, and then on to a neurosurgeon or neurologist depending on the outcome of the EMG. I have slight weakness(as diagnoised by my doc) in my right arm and muscle jerks about 30 times a day. It is one jerk, like in my shoulder or hand and then stops til later I have another one. I do have some shaking in my right hand. Thankfully the pins and needles affect in my legs and toes is almost gone. The jerking is worse at night. My bed has become a torture chamber because it all starts in when I lay down. My right arm also aches at times. I am scared to death I have ALS and it is absorbing all my time and thoughts. I know that isn't helping but that's the way it is. Does this sound like ALS or am going crazy? Thank you so much for all your replies and concern. It means alot.
