No, heaviness is not a worry for ALS, any more than the rest of what you wrote. Read through it all, imagine a friend came to you with this, imagine the conversation that you might have.

I am confident there is some kind of video consult to be had where you are. Please reach out for some reassurance.

Again, we're not worried about ALS. Maybe try to do some light stretching, walking (distanced), etc.

You are safer staying away from offices and hospitals you don't need to be in, honestly. Per the NHS:

Most GP surgeries, hospitals, mental health services and community care services now offer video consultations.

It's start to do it and it doesn't happen. Not at all what you describe. Heaviness, stiffness, tightness, shakiness, weird feelings are not ALS.

We have answered all we can. The stiffness you report isn’t an ALS symptom.

closing thread so you are not tempted to keep posting. Please only come back after you have a diagnosis/ answer to report
