- Learn about ALS
I’m a 36 year old male and about 6 weeks ago I started having neck stiffness. When I turn my neck slowly, the movement isn’t fluid, instead it’s a bit jerky. I also have pain when I turn my head to the left side or put my ear to my shoulder. Soon after my neck issues began, I started having muscle twitches. The twitches have progressed in frequency and location. I went to my GP, and he conducted a basic clinical and said my knee reflexes were very brisk on both knees, but I had no weakness or clonus. He said he’d refer me to a neurologist if it helped my anxiety, but the first available neurologist appointment isn’t until August. My anxiety is through the roof. Does this sound like an atypical ALS presentation?
