Hey, clean EMG in atrophied muscles pretty much rules out ALS. There are exception when EMGs are in the early stages, but I have never heard about case like this. By my doctors its impossible.
EMG is essential, without typical findings on EMG you cant diagnose you with ALS.

My ALS clinic noted muscle wasting and I have a "dirty" emg BUT not ALS. (My nerves are regenerating. Thus the reason my EMG says "abnormal study.")

That was two years ago and I still do not have ALS. Proof for me that trying to nail things down over the internet accomplishes nothing other than wasting time.
