Hello

Thanks in advance for taking the time to read this.

2 months ago tingling started in my hands and feet more on the left side with muscle weakness or tiredness. Recently the tingling has subsided but i now have some minor twitching in my left eye and on both thighs. I have tinnitus and floaters in eyes which developed recently. I also have muscle weakness, well i wake up and feel ok as in I can walk and lift stuff but then after doing very minor activity i feel weak and very tired like an overwhelming weak or fatigue. My fingers also i feel are not as flexible or as useful as before. I am waiting to see neurologist but I am anxious aswell.

I had bloods done which were fine and then a normal brain and spine mri.

I believe this could be something like als as mri and bloods all normal.

Thank you in advance
Dani

Hi Dani, have a good read carefully through this link.

Let us know what the neurologist says, but what you are experiencing really is not how ALS starts and I think jumping from a few minor things like tingling and fatigue is a huge stretch to being terminally ill. It's really like being convinced you have a brain tumour because you have had some headaches.
Don't ask the neurologist if you have ALS, just report your symptoms and let them investigate. I hope you get answers and a return to full health quickly.
