- Learn about ALS
I am really scared! For the past week and a half I have had some really weird things happening to my body and I am really scared by them. My right hand on my pinky and the finger beside it cramp up and sometimes go numb, my little toe and the toe next to it feel like they are cramped together and the muscle in my right leg seems more dfined than the muscle in my left. I also have episodes where one side or my whole face goes numb. I have seen a neuro and my PCP and had an MRI of the brain, head and cervical spine (neck) done and my PCP said there was one spot that looks similar to what MS does or a migraine headache but over all he diagnosed me with a pinched nerve in my neck and my back...but after doing the exercises it doesn't seem to be helping. My neuro referred me to my PCP and my PCP said he was 99.9% sure it wasn't ALS but I just can't shake the feeling that there is something else going on, I just don't feel right. Does any of this sound like ALS to you guys? I'm sorry I know you have it and have to live with it but I don't know who else to turn to right now, I am really scared!
