Hi there

My brother was diagnosed in September 2003 he was 46 years old. My belief is that ALS is indiscriminate. Anyone can be affected no matter how old you are.

Take care
Anna

Iluvmysoldier502, you have an interesting username. Was your spouse in the military in Canada or the US? Did he/she serve in the Gulf war?

Hi:

I first had symptoms had about a 61 which were somewhat obscure. I was not diagnosed with motor neuron disease until age 63. Mine is lower motor neuron. At least that is the diagnosis at this point.

I'm 57 and was diagnosed at 54. Statistically speaking the average age for diagnosis is around the mid 50's. There are people with it in their teens but it is a rarity. In the last few years there have been more people diagnosed in their 30's and 40's but predominantly in the 50's and later. AL.

My dad was diagnosed at age 84. He had been having symptoms of muscular weakness for several years, but nobody looked for ALS until he could no longer swallow. When I look back, I realize this probably began when he was 78 or 79, maybe even sooner.

Hi there, Do you have ALS? How old are you and where are you from? This could be a very interesting post if we could keep it going. We as a family wonder about what our pals did for a living , trauma, other diseases maybe in their lifetime. Where they live and their age etc. Hope we get more responses . My Best to all, Beebe
