- Learn about ALS
I have posted a couple of times on here and I wanted to say thank you to everyone who replied with encouraging words. I am really scared now. I went to the neurologist on Friday and after reviewing the results o the MRI with me, normal except for a small non specific lesion in the cervical spine, he wants to do an EMG next week. I am not afraid it's gonna hurt I'm so scared of the results. I am only 24 and just got married in November 06 and I feel like I am all alone. My poor husband is trying his best to deal with me but I don't think he really understands why I am so scared. The doctor said he his gut feeling is that it's my thyroid (my TSH was 143 and my thyroid is producing little to no T4 at all) but I just can't shake this feeling that it's more than that. I try to keep telling myself that it's gonna come out clean and that I am just getting worked up over nothing but I can't keep myself from going back to this feeling of dread. The doctor gave me anxiety mediine but it just makes me sleepy and I have a full time job. I tried to talk to one of my close friends about how I am feeling and she just nodded and changed the subject. I don't want to say anything to my mom b/c I don't want her to be worried more than she is. I'm sorry I know I am rambling I just needed somewhere to unload and from what I've read on here you guys are really understanding, so thanks again for llistening.
