Hi I was wondering if anyone could comment on whether or not muscle pain (specifically calf achiness) could be associated with a muscle neuron disease like ALS. I have posted in the past and have experienced body wide muscle twitching for about 10 months or so. I have not had any weakness that I am aware of, however, for about the same amount of time I have had one leg (muscles in calf area) feel achey, almost like a pulled calf muscle. I can press on the muscle that is tender and identify where it is bothersome. I do walk quite regularly (3 miles/day) and I am able to do so without alot of trouble, but I do notice that I favor this leg and therefore limp throughout the day. I can walk on toes/heels without trouble and am on my feet all day. Along with the twitching which occurs randomly in various body parts, I don't seem to have any other limitations. So long and short, is muscle pain usually seen along with the other trademark ALS symptoms? Wright, and anybody else, I would truly appreciate any input. Thanks again.
