Newly come to morning stiffness are feeling in the toes (right and left-slightly) and in the right hand

Pulling sensation in the little finger

Can be paralysis? Or you can concentrate on being weak?

My left leg feels different than that right

Tomorrow have an EMG on schedule. Is it correct if the EMG in order, despite the complaints, there is then no ALS?

This isn't early paralysis you are experiencing, so try not to worry.

If there is something LMN amiss, the E M G will find it. Stiffness can be Amy number of things, amd is a normal part of aging for many.

Pulling is, or can be, spasms. Again, patience, ask today.

If the stiffness makes it hard to do things, I'd suggest massaging your hand under hot water as part of you morning routine. This works for a BFSer I know. But as Notme said, it's not something worth worrying about beyond that.

As to your question, yes, if the doc ex am is ok and E M G is ok, then no ALS. Sorry, missed that question. E M G r
Is LMN te st, and UMN is the doc ex am.

Sorry, we put in spaces to avoid moderation on certain words.

Many thanks for your replies.

My EMG was fine. It was tested on the shin, calf and thumb and little finger.

But nevertheless still weird symptoms. Can I assume that due to the good, but no EMG is ALS?

It very well could be BFS. It doesn't damage nerves, but it irritates them which can cause that sort of thing.
