- Learn about ALS
I will request if from neuro...thanks for your patience
Not really. With ALS, the affected person out of the blue realizes they can no longer do something they could do before such as rise up on the toes or heels, fasten a button, or brush their hair. They see a doctor who detects clinical weakness. This then leads to a full evaluation including an EMG, which shows characteristic changes in the case of ALS, and ruling out ALS mimics. It almost never starts with twitching.No I do not have the EMG...but is this how ALS presents and progresses?
