Great news

That's really great news Zac! Hopefully your symptoms will start to disappear and things will get better for you. I wrote you another post and asked if you have ever had a Smith test for lupus? Something is causing your symptoms, but I am really glad it is not als. Leslie

Congrats Zac!

I think, you should pursue other problems, if you still feel bad, don't stop just because it's not ALS!

Hi Zac - the doc can do an EMG of your tongue. By the way, did he notice your speech problems? Leslie

Zac,


it's called a larangeal (cynthroid) emg. Look at my post on medhelp.org, it's called ALS or Something Else, it's from about Oct. 2006 under 4t1074 user id.

Good Luck.

Thx,

Jamie
