My husband was diagnosed with ALS at the end of August, 2008. Since then, I've taken comfort from your posts ... your information, your honesty and your humor. I guess we've both just been lurking up until now, happy to know you are out there. In the past few months, I have noticed increasing fasiculations (and muscle cramping) on myself ... and yesterday i fiinally looked at my foot (where i feel regular fasciculations) and it looks just like the fasiculations I see and feel on my husband! It's not so much that I'm worried that I have ALS too (although the scary thought has occurred to me) but that I am now wondering if there is some environmental link to this ...? Maybe a key to what is ailing him? (In addition to ALS he was diagnosed with subtle seizures too ... some mental changes ... not a normal thing with ALS ... taken care of with Kepra). I've also wondered it other spouses of people with ALS have developed fasiculatioins ... it almost feels like it is our bodies talking to each other.
