- Learn about ALS
Ok, I posted on here earlier and the responses were greatly appreciated. I just would like to update and see if any of this sounds familiar to anybody. I have the twitching in my arms and legs...I do also realize twitching happens in more than just ALS. I also have a spot in the middle of my back that is numb and the numbness in my face still comes and goes as does the numbness in my right hand. I also feel like three of my fingers are very stiff but they still have strength. When I use my right hand alot it feels like the muscle is pulling, but again not weak. I have tried doing the exercises that the Dr gave me for my "pinched nerves" but it seems to make me feel worse...temporarily.. I also noted before that the muscle in my right leg is more defined than the left, can anybody tell me if that is a sign of atrophy? I am still so scared of what could be happening to me it's taking over and my husband and family think that I am crazy because my PCP told me he was 99.9% sure it wasn't ALS but he's not a neuro. Anyways god bless you all for your patience with those of us ask these silly ?'s.
