Hi,

My mom was just diagnosed with ALS, and informed me last night. So far she has some left arm spasms, a little difficulty with her left leg, and slightly impaired speech which is only noticeable at night when she is tired.

By the sound of things that I have read, this is a pretty early stage, so for that I am thankful.

I just wanted to introduce myself since I am sure to have many comments and questions as I peruse throughout this site and the rest of the internet.
