Hello-

We are sorry you have reason to post here. We will try to help if we can.

Are you saying you have been diagnosed with ALS? Have you had an EMG test?

Once again, welcome.

I am still not sure what happened and what you are asking.

i think you said after experiencing increasing weakness in one hand over a couple of years along with atrophy someone diagnosed you with ALS?

when you answered no to Fiona which question was no ? The diagnosis wasn’t made or you didn’t have an emg?

if you were diagnosed with ALS was it by a neurologist? to diagnose ALS you need to have both certain things on exam and an emg that shows damage. If you didn’t have a neurologist and an emg can you get those where you live?

This is what is included in a report from a neurologist in July 2020

This is a concerning report, but it would be helpful to see the actual table of data, and it is not in itself a diagnosis. What is the plan going forward?

I deleted the photos because your name was on them. The NCS was completely normal. There was no table of EMG findings -- it was blank. So there is nothing else to say without that. But if this is from 2020 and you are still OK, that certainly is an argument against ALS.
