I try to move on. I try to say OK, no ALS and Im OK but I just can't. Something is wrong. Why do I have fasiculations all over my body? Places include: side of feet, bottom of feet, side of my knees, calves, hamstring, back, biceps, triceps, shoulders, forearms,neck, and hands. Sometimes they are so violent I would characterize them as muscle jerks and not twitches. My arms/shoulders have definitely lost muscle mass but the DR. says no signs of atrophy. My tongue looks a little odd, but I have to admit I never really studied my tongue beforehand. Why arms BOTH my shoulders experiencing subluxation. It is horrible. I cannot move them would horrible crackling sounds. I just feel like my age(28) is hurting me. I honestly just feel like Im not being taken seriously. No I will admit one thing that is missing in the ALS puzzle, Im not weak. At least not that I can notice. My hands are strong. I have no problems walking. I even shot a little hoops yesterday and went swimming. This has been going on for 7 months which again i have been told the fact that the symptoms have going on for 7 months and i have no weakness is another good sign. I just know there is something wrong here. Im willing to accepts and of course be happy if its not ALS, but i need I a diagnosis of something. Why do I twitch all day? They are debilating. Why are my muscles/shoulders losing muscle mass? Why are my shoulders experiancing sublaxation? Does anyone have at least a small guess?
