- Learn about ALS
thank u all for the advice but i need some more clarification can anxiety really make fasciculations show up on a emg as bad as it did on mine cuz the neuro said i had alot show up on mine like in every muscle he poked with the needle and i get them nonstop constantly and the ones in my legs never ever ever ever stop they go all day long all day they feel weird and they are all over my legs all over them and they dont stop ther is two places on my legs that never go away my phyciatrist even sawl them my therapist even sawl them and my neuro did they just go and go all day i just tuch the spot and there it is its movin u can see them through my clothes jumpin and people hev seen them to just sitting next to me can my generalized anxiety disorder really do this to me? but by the way this all started about a year ago and i had nothing to do with twitching it was other symptoms and i lost three jobs because i could not stay at work because i had major symptoms all kinds of symptoms and i ran up a 20,000 dollar hospital bill i went to the er just about everyday and they told me everytime its anxiety and i coulld not belive them cuz my symptoms where so strong and it wasnt like i had anxiety attacks this stuff went from the time i woke up to the time i went to sleep then about six months ago the twitching started i had them all the time but it did not worry me then when i read about als i freaked now for the past 4 weeks they have been 20 time worse than they where i get little ones all over and the major ones never ever go away and i get all these bubbleing feeling like my body is just bubbling all over and i wiill look at the bubbling spot and there it is just twitching i cant work i test myself if i get weak all the time i cant think i cant concentrate all i can think about is is this als look the fasciculations are really really bad i feel like a lit up christmas tree and now my legs feel really stiff is that bad but anyways can my only real question is can fasciculations be this bad and not be al?CAN FASCICULATIONS BE THIS BAD AND NOT BE ALS? and can they really be that bad on a emg and not be als?
