- Learn about ALS
So to start I’m incredibly sorry if I’m wasting anyone’s time. However I have received some weird news from my Neurologist and not entirely sure what to expect. So last year I went to a Neuro in regards to some muscle twitching I had going on. However after labs, EmG and physical assessment done everything came back ok and I went on without concern. However recently (approx 1 year later) I noticed that the muscle twitching had returned and I had some odd annunciation problems. I went to my regular doctor did some labs which received high bilirubin and she then sent me to a neurologist. After doing some labs I had multiple high levels come back most of which being my CPK being in the thousands approximately 14000. Along with this my liver enzymes are high and my B12 is 190. He said I need to see an ALS specialist. My question is this. Although I know it will take multiple specialist to figure out what’s going on. Is my blood results common with that and ALS? I don’t have any clinical weakness in fact I’m above average strength in my workouts in terms of overall strength and stamina. My problems with speech are not noticeable to others and I have no problems chewing or swallowing. I’m just wondering if what I mentioned seems consistent with that of ALS? I know no one here can diagnose I just wanted to know if I’m presenting early? I’m only 29 years old white male.
