As the consultant states, this EMG did not support ALS, nor did the exam. I am very happy for you, and encourage you to consider the suggestions in the report. I do disagree that the fascics/cramps have to be lifelong, but whether they are or not, which you have some control over, how you respond to them makes all the difference.

You do not obsess over a birthmark or hair color, and this is the same thing in many ways. I would suggest that the other symptoms you report could be explained by some combination of anxiety, stress, poor sleep, too much going on, and becoming more sensitive to the slings and arrows that our bodies do throw at us. But it is worth checking in with your GP and talking this through in terms of what you can try to feel better, and being followed to rule out any potentially relevant condition such as GERD, allergies, diabetes, sleep apnea, and such.

Best,
Laurie
