Hi All,.....After a year of symptoms I have finally received the diagnosis I so feared-ALS. My legs are very weak and I sometimes have slurring and hesitant speech. Also have problems with fine motor coordination in left hand but that's it so far. There are no support groups in my location. I happened upon the ALS forums and it is the happiest day I have had since learning I have ALS. So many of my questions have already been answered in your forum. I have had no connections with anyone with this disease so I am delighted. I was wondering if any of you have problems with bloating of the stomach. It seems no matter how little I eat the bloating starts and I feel really full too fast. Yikes! don't take eating away from me, too. Happy to meet you all and will probably have many more questions. Thanks!
