- Learn about ALS
Hi there. Thank you all and I really appreciate your time. I'm a 39 year old male that has been freaking out for the last 4 months. Back in early September I started getting fasisculations and at first it didn't bother me, then as time went on I started googling....They have been rather persistent since then, I first noticed them in my calves then quickly everywhere else. At the time I was under a ton of stress(still am). I've also been experiencing lightheadedness mainly in the AM and it seems like my tinnitus has gotten a little worse. I have started taking lexapro for anxiety about a month ago and it was working great to the point my fasisculations almost seemed to go away but I was getting a lot of side effects. Recently my anxiety started coming back. I haven't experienced any noticable weekness and was able to get into a neuro at the VA. After the exam the doc told me he sees no sign or any neuro disease and also had his boss come in and look at me who also told me the same. I apologise ahead of time if I'm wasting your time but for me and my family sake I'm looking for a first hand opinion to help put my mind at rest.
