Hey all,

I am glad I found you. I have been experiencing twitching for 2 1/2 years. I was d's with fnd last year. However, this last February my foot started twitching like crazy. This march the CONSTANT twitching moved to the other side of the same foot. I noticed that my foot has atrophied significantly where the twitching initiated. I have two small children. I need to get my affairs in order if this is going to be for the worse. What should I ask the Neuro when I go on Monday?? Does this sound familiar to anyone?? Thanks in advanced. I am a 32 year old female.

I’m not familiar with “fnd”. In any case, you don’t need to worry about ALS if you have twitching but no weakness or muscle function failure.

Please read this sticky: https://www.alsforums.com/forum/do-i-have-als-als/26591-read-before-posting-answers-common-concerns-about-possible-symptoms.html

The neurologist can tell you whether or not you have atrophy. Most atrophy is the result of a mechanical issue. You can tell the neurologist what you’re concerned about and see what s/he says.

Fnd= functional neurological disorder usually. That would be an unusual diagnosis if your only symptom is twitching. If this neuro has seen you before they will be able to assess your foot but even IF there is atrophy there are many more likely reasons.
Dr Perez at mgh is a leading fnd specialist do you see him?
