Please read this if you have not already done so: Important - READ BEFORE POSTING! Answers to common concerns about possible symptoms!

You haven’t described anything that suggests ALS. Twitching is common, nonspecific, and meaningless in the absence of muscle function failure which you have not described. Up to 70% of healthy people twitch. It could be benign fasciculation symptom, or might be from caffeine, inadequate sleep, stress, overworked muscles, or an electrolyte or metabolic issue. See your primary care doctor if you have concerns.

Acid reflux is treatable and has nothing to do with ALS or twitching.

Thank you for your response.
But I wonder why, i cant sit properly because my legs are feeling weak. And so many twitching. Twitching also occurs on my arm.
Ive been experiencing twitching for weeks now. Also at night, i can feel the movements that could even bother my sleep. Im also worried of my throat, because its also one of the early symptoms of it. I hoping for your opinion and advice. Thank you.

I can see why you are worried Trapz, but I'm afraid that as your symptoms are nothing like ALS we can't help - I hope you can work with your doctor to figure this out, I'm sure it will be something that can be treated. Twitching means nothing at all, so don't worry about that, just work with your doctor :)
